Dynamic Label for Dimensions/Measures?

I'm using this label for a Measure:

= 'Sales ' & Max(Year)

I was expecting that the visualizations shows: Sales 2014, for example.

But, instead of this, it shows the formula: = 'Sales ' & Max(Year)

How can I get that dynamic label?

I have noticed that on the measure label editor, doesn't appears the Fx symbol, so may be it must be only plain text to show on it (not formulas)

I hope that on the next release, it could be changed

That is correct.  At this time the labels for measures are text only.  The quick way to know what is text only and what can by dynamic is by looking for the "fx" button on the dialogue.

Thought it worth pointing out that you can use functions in the name of the chart.  Not perfect, but suitable work arround for most uses.

Re: Dynamic Label for Dimensions/Measures?

I'm using latest version 2.1.1 and it still not available.

I need to use functions both in measures and dimensions because of multilanguages.

How can I do ?

Re: Dynamic Label for Dimensions/Measures?

I saw the extension, but it can't be used for a multilanguage app.

Simple I need to change pivot table labels based on which language has been chosen, ex. using the expression below:

=Minstring( {< Position = {"19_fatt_x_cli"} >} $(vLanguage) )

I taked a look also at the latest version 2.2 but this feature it's still unavailable!
