It would help if we could put a variable in the column name (table or graph).

I am currently using the dynamic slicers to select different sets of measure (using variables). Currently, it would just display the variable names.
It would greatly help if I could use my variables (measures) then use another variable for the set of names which corresponds to the set of measures.

RE: Column Names as Variable

Yes, this function is simple yet very useful.


For example, if we choose a Year "2022" in a slicer, then the column name shall be something like "2022 Actual Sales".

If 2021 is selected, then the column name shall be displayed as "2021 Actual Sales".


This functionality is so simple but add a lot of clarity for users.
