Custom display names in custom reports & dashboards


It would be nice if we could rename dimensions & metrics in custom reports & dashboards. For example, renaming “Custom events” into “CTA clicks” in a custom report that shows the number of custom events filtered by category “CTA”. This would ease the reading of the report for non-technical users.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

Hi @Thomas_Anode_FR,

If you want to, you can. You can create a calculated metric, name it according to your needs and place the metric you want in there, in your case it would be like this:

Would that solve your use-case?

Hello Richard, it’s been a while. :slight_smile:

Thank you for your suggestion! Indeed, this solution works for metrics but what about dimensions?

My request was more about being able to add custom “display” names for any field in a custom report or dashboard.

It has been a while indeed :slight_smile:

Dimension can be done in a similar fashion:

Because we added a random condition to it, All other dimension values will be shown, but than having the column name of CTA Category

But yeah, I agree renaming a column in a report or dashboard could have its benefits.

I’ll keep in mind these workarounds :+1: thank you!

So, will you consider adding custom names to your solution?

We’ll add it as a feature request, but we don’t know when or even if it will be added to the platform at some point.
