Strange/incorrect legend in Sense map object

I am using the map object to plot various metrics - works great!

The legend feature of the map object is a bit strange though, the legend title seems to get its value from the linked measure's expression, rather than it's name.

For example, the map looks like this (legend intervals blacked out intentionally)

Map-legend-1.png

The measure definition looks like this:

Map-legend-2.png

I would expect the legend title to be "DAU/MAU, 7d avg", rather than "Avg([DAU/MAU, 7d avg])...

If this observed behaviour is intentional, what is the rationale behind it?

Hi Goran,

To add some additional verification - here is the new map screenshot, note the legend, expressions and label.

This is expression from a field - used directly as a Measure

Re: Strange/incorrect legend in Sense map object

Nice!!

Related question (sorry for bringing up boring little details..):

It seems it is still not possible to use an expression to control the label?

I have run across several cases during my Sense work so far where I would like to control the label/heading of an object programmatically (i.e. using an expression), rather than just having it hard coded.

Seems it is possible in some places, but not everywhere..

Keep up the good work - I really like the direction Sense is going!

Hey Goran - thanks so much for your feedback. yes, I see that you cannot create the title with an expression yet. I will find out when that may be planned and update you.

Have a great day.
