When you are working with an unpublished app, you can create master measures so that they can be reused.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.
A measure is a combination of an expression and descriptive data, such as name, description and tags. You can add the expression for the measure in different ways.
You can create a master measure in different ways.
- Creating a master measure from a field
- Creating a master measure with a common aggregation function

You can also create a master measure based on a measure created in a visualization.
Click Master item> Create new under the measure in the property panel of a visualization.
