    Grouping Column Measure Names

    Jonathan Hodge

      Howdy all!


      Am wondering if tableau can group measure names?

      I thought it might be as simple as creating a calculation similar to "if measure name = X then 'MTD'....etc" but that did not seem to be possible?

      Attached is a workbook using superstore data. When using calculated fields that figure out MTD and YTD logic, is there then a way to include a grouping above it?


      The real world came from needing to use limited real estate, so on the dashboard a scrollbar exists. So if we plant text objects on the dashboard that say "MTD", "YTD", they do not move with the scroll of the actual visual.


      Thanks for any assistance!
