Editing a master measure
When you update a master measure, the changes will be reflected in all its instances, including all visualizations that use it.
Edit a master measure from the assets panel or while editing visualization properties.
Editing a master measure from the assets panel
Use the assets panel to edit a master measure when you want to preview the measure or edit several master measures.
Do the following:
In sheet view, click Edit sheet in the toolbar.
The assets panel opens on the left-hand side.
- Click to display the master items.
Click the measure that you want to edit.
The preview opens.
Click at the bottom of the preview.
If the measure is used on a sheet, a dialog is displayed to inform you that any changes to the master measure will be applied to all its instances on the sheets.
The Edit measure dialog opens, where you update the expression, name, description, color, and tags.
- Click Save.
The measure is now updated.
Editing a master measure from visualization properties
When a measure in a visualization is linked to a master measure, you can edit the master measure from the properties panel. All visualizations in the app that use the master measure will be updated. To edit a linked measure only in this visualization, without affecting the master item, you must first unlink it from the master. See Unlinking from a master item.
Do the following:
In edit mode, select the visualization.
In the properties panel, click the Data tab.
If it is hidden, click Show properties in the lower right-hand corner.
Under Measures, click the linked measure to edit.
Under Master item, click Edit.
A dialog is displayed to inform you that any changes to the master measure will be applied to all visualizations that use the measure.
- Make your changes to the master measure, and then click Save.
