How do I find out who owns a beast mode calc?

Hi!

 

Domo newbie here. I'm trying to document some datasets prior to roll-out and I see some beast mode calcs on it.

 

Quite a few cards have been created using these datasets. Is there a quick way to find out which card a beast mode calc came from? Or who owns it?

The short answer is no, this information is not available.

There are a few ideas in the Ideas Exchange around beast mode governance, though, which you can search and upvote for increased exposure.

In the meantime, (it may be a little late for you on this), I've made a Google spreadsheet shared within my organization with a column for creator, BM name, and the calculation so users can search for existing BMs as needed to copy and paste for edits or to ask questions or report issues.

Thanks all! 

 

@KateVanBuskirk that's actually what I'm trying to do, while we only have a handlful of people actively creating cards because I can see this quickly becoming impossible to manage. 

 

I managed to track down the source after I posted this btw, and he has agreed to clean up and document his stuff.

Re: How do I find out who owns a beast mode calc?

A solution that has worked for me and my team really well is adding this at the end of the beast mode name:

<Beast Mode name> <(Initials of the person who created it)>

 

For e.g., Day of the month (gb). 

 

There are pro's and con's to this method. Works really well if its a smaller team and if through a governance process, you restrict access to edit to only a few known people so you don't have to second guess the initials.

 

The option to create a living worksheet of all beast modes is also very helpful to avoid duplicating a calc that already exists.

 

A combination of initials + living worksheet should help you to connect to the rightful owner and also ensure we aren't creating duplicates.
