Creating a master measure from the data model viewer

When you are working with an unpublished app, you can create master measures so that they can be reused. Users of a published app will have access to the master measures, but will not be able to modify them.

Do the following:

  1. In the data model viewer, select a field and open the Preview panel.

  2. Click Add as measure.

    The Create new measure dialog opens, with the selected field. The name of the selected field is also used as the default name of the measure.

  3. Enter an expression for the measure.

  4. Change the name if you want to, and optionally add a description, color, and tags.

  5. Click Create.

The measure is now saved to the master items tab of the assets panel.
