Warning: Datasets and Metrics with more than 15 reports will no longer be supported as of 1 August 2023.
If you are using multiple reports in a dataset or a metric, it can become hard to remember which report contains which data—especially if you are using multiple datasets or if some reports are using the same data source.
You can add a label to each report to help identify what data the report contains or where it comes from. To do this in the metric builder, click on the down arrow at the right of the report tab to open the report menu, and click on "Add Label." A window will pop up to enter the label. Click "save" and the text will be below the report header.
Only the first 25 characters will be visible in each report tab in the metric builder.
NOTE: When referring to reports in a Master SQL report or in Spreadsheet Functions, you will still use the report number (e.g., "report1")
Using report labels in Datasets
You cannot add labels to a dataset report used in a metric. If you want to have labels display on reports used from a dataset, you can edit the dataset and add labels to each report in the Dataset Builder. Then the label for that report will display in the Metric Builder.
Note: Starting on 13 May 2021 metrics and datasets will be capped at 15 reports. Metrics and datasets created before this date with more than 15 reports, will remain intact; however, no new reports above the 15 report limit will be possible moving forward on all metrics.
