Hi-

This request is on the roadmap with the improvements that we would like to do on the asset panel.

Thanks a lot!

This thread has been ongoing for quite some time now.  It seems like quite a basic addition to QS.  If indeed, as has been suggested, it is on the road map, any idea when this is due to be resolved? mtoetk

Hi Reena,

you need to change "Event Original Name" in the text below to what you have called your event field (the dimension name you use to create the graph). Then you can use an inline load to create a map if there are only a few field values you want to change.

Event Map:

LOAD * INLINE [

    Event Original Name, Event New Name

    Pre - Op (Arm 1 : Phase 1), PreOp

    2 Week Post - Op (Arm 2 : Follow - Up), 2Week

];

or just create a table in excel like this:

nd use this script at the end:


Event Map:

LOAD [Event Original Name], // RENAME THIS TO YOUR FIELD NAME. I assume this is called "Event Name"?

     [Event New Name]

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

This will create an associative join on the [Event Original Name] field and give you a [Event New Name] value every time there is a match in the field [Event Original Name].



Mark helpful and close this thread.

Sarvesh,

From my understanding, Reena isn't talking about Aliasing.  Instead, the query relates to changing the name of a drilldown within which she's used a complex expression to define the dimensions.

Thanks

Mike, 

In my case this does not help. I was working on the drill-down geoanalytics map, similar to the one in the video that you posted (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=36&v=gOgBablDHgY) and I was trying to change the =fl_county&','& state with 'County' to show on the bubble (see attached screenshot, it's 7:59 in the video). Is there a way of doing that?

Thank you!
