Feature Request - Allow Renaming of Column in Table/Chart

Hi,

 

It would be great that we could rename the columns in a table or chart.

 

Currently if I want the Column header for say "Site (DCM)" to be show as "Publisher / Site", I would have to create a custom field which essentially is has the formula => "Site (DCM)".

 

Same go for the charts.

 

Thanks.

You can rename the fields in the data source definition (you don't *need* a custom field)

 

I'm sure this is something that can easily be worked out in future releases.

Hi,

 

Thanks, totally forgot about that even thought I've created so many custom fields.

 

Funny how we can overlook things at time..

 

Thanks.
