Drill Path should leverage column headers not dataset field names.

I would like for the drill paths to use the column header names instead of the dataset field names.  This allows for on the fly adjustment of drill downs without investing any time in ETL.

 

*How many times have I gone into a dataset and renamed or duplicated a column, just so I could drill down to a different dataset?  TOO MANY.  Especially when that's the only thing I want to do.  It causes bloat and superfluous dataflows and datasets.  It also helps keep those not familiar with ETL, out of that arena.

    Thank you for submitting this @tc. I am assigning to our product manager @ckwright to review and comment.

  • @tc Thanks for this feedback. Yes, this would be very helpful if you've renamed several different column names. I put this idea on our backlog to review with the team.
