Calculated dimensions in selection bar:Qlik Sense

I have created a simple calculated dimension of a date. When filtered the selection pane on top shows the entire formula instead of label. Have tried to make it as a master dimension too, but of no help.

The end user does not need to see this as it looks complicated if its a set analysis expression. Below is the snapshot

We did an improvement in Qlik Sense 3.2 around calculated dimensions.

If you add a calculated dimension to the library we will then pick up the dimension name and display instead of the calculation.

The reason it shows like that is its a filter on the data model that the selection is against not a particular app object.   If you think about it you can label anything anywhere in your app so you could have to items with the same label but meaning 2 different things.

I agree if its a master item then it would be good to show the name rather than the calculation as you have a governed context.

If you got the user to set the filter via a variable you could use the variable name although im not sure that its appropriate in your case.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply.Labels are the whole point of being able to name something. The same error of same label can now currently happen in a graph too.

I have some complicated dimensions which looks very ugly on the filter !

Know any ways of solving this?
