Having multiple measure name groups would be even cool
We at Cornell would love to see this added. We need more basic formatting capabilities (assign specific colors to specific rows, full control over formatting decimal places for individual columns/rows in blended data sources, group breaks, etc.). I'm struggling here with a request for my Dean trying to use a combination of adding blank rows and Tableau banded shading, but ... I don't think it's going to work. Obviously, if we could group measures, that would be ideal.
Appreciate the consideration of this request.
+ 1 on the ability to group measure names
I agree, it would be great if you could group measures directly in Tableau. In the meantime, I'll be using this data reshaping Excel plugin tool that was discussed at length in this Knowledge Base article:
This is a video explaining the tool:
Basically, it allows you to transpose and reshape your Measures in a way that they become Dimensions that can be grouped in Tableau. Note that it's unsupported by Excel and Tableau, so you'll need to back up your data before using.In the meantime, it would be great if Tableau could advise on whether in-application measure grouping is on the product roadmap.
