Variables Feedback

I didn't see a feedback section, so I will just post this here. I feel like there is a big miss with the variables product. You can currently leverage smart text to allow your chart titles to change when you select different values for a variable. However, you are not able to utilize smart text for labeling chart axis or legends. Please add this functionality so that our charts will correctly identify what is being graphed when we change variables.

    @ST_-Superman-_ on paper i think i agree with you but i'm not sure what you want the end experience to be.


    when you choose a value with the Variable Picker, you want the value of the Variable Picker represented on the Axis? for stuff like this might be helpful to post a quick video of what you mean.

    Hi!

    Are you guys opening variables from analyzer / best mode? I think it was released today but for some reason I cant find it and I'm dying of FOMO.

    Big Time Need for Date Variables:

    Set the default to MYSQL functions like Current_Date. I would guess that 80% of users would prefer this to be the default for a date variable.

  • @user00344 that is a great idea to be able to set the default value with a function. Current_Date or Last 30 Days. Or you could even get creative with some case statements...

    @jaeW_at_Onyx Here is a quick and dirty video describing what I tried to explain in my post. In short, you had the right idea. Hopefully this clarifies things a bit.
