Master measure - alternative label

My idea is basically the same as this post.But I can't reply to it.

The introduction of expression based label in master measure is great. But it would be nice to be able to overrule the label within a chart. Similar how you are able to overrule the master formatting.

I was thinking about this the other day. This would be very helpful.

@avl_dlimi  Look like other thread on this is marked 'delivered' by mistake. Thanks for raising this, its going to be very useful for us, we maintain master items in SQL table so its frustrating to create new copy of the master item in the situations when we need different labels.

Thank you all for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While this is something we understand would be useful, it's not on the short-term roadmap. Please continue to show your support for this idea by commenting and liking.

Meanwhile, refer to the master measure as an expression, for example =SumOfSales and then set a custom label.

Thanks, 
Patric
