Creating New Metrics When You're Not the Owner of the Report

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi there. 

 

Just noticed that when you are not the owner of the report, there is not an option to add a new metric. The existing metrics are there but you just can't add new ones unless you're the owner/creator of the report - any ideas on how to do this? The only way around it that I can see is to make a copy of the report then you have the option to add new metrics but this isn't ideal.

 

Any advice would be much appreciated!

 

Thank you,

Laura

The owner of the report can add you as "Editor" or the report. 

Then you will be allow to add others data source. 

To do this, administrator/owner should to click on the icon to share and :

If you don't have permission on a data source already connected, you couldn't edit the data source to add some calculated fields.
