How to apply a filter across 2 data sources with filter column having diff names in the data sources

I have a column called Frequency (values could be daily, weekly, monthly) in data source 1 and a column called Cadence (values could be daily, weekly, monthly) in data source 2.

How can I join these two columns to apply the filter on both data sources?

    You’ll need to rename them so they have the same name. You could just save a beast mode to the dataset where you have it just return the other column

    No, if you can change the names so they're the same in the backed then you won't need to create a new field / beast mode to do your filtering.

    @GrantSmith - Thanks. I am new to Domo. I just renamed it to have a common name across both data sources. What formula should I put in the beast mode?

    If you have dataset A with Field1 and Dataset B with Field2 then create a beast mode on the card using dataset B and call it Field1. Then have it return the value Field2

    `Field2`

  • @GrantSmith - do I still need to create this beast mode after I have changed my backend data sources to have same column name in both?
