Rename variables

Hey folks,

we use QlikSense and created around 20 Sheets with pretty nice dashboards, tables and so on.

In these sheets we are using expressions in the dashboards as well as colour-expressions.

So far everything is fine, but now we have the problem with renaming variables.

Always when we rename a variable in the load script we have to skim through all of our dashboards and rename all variables.

Is there a way that is much more efficient, because this drives us crazy?

BR,

Emanuel

Re: Rename variables

Hey Emanuel, just make your variables master items. Then you don't need to change them all manually (only in master item). And if you want to modify the expression in one chart only (which happens quite often) you can just unlink it.
