Alias Property or Label

Alias Property or Label

Description of the enhancement required:
Alias Property or Label

An example of the enhancement:
The Item Name in a list might not always be indicative of what they might want to see in a report, but it’s how it’s stored within their metadata structures so it’s currently what’s being used. Sometimes as part of an alias they might want to append the reporting currency to the name, but it’s not how they would want to show the item name during the Planning process. There’s no reason to create and maintain another list if an “alias” property could be selected instead.

Planning vs. Reporting

  • America vs. Americas (USD)
  • North America vs. North America (USD)
  • Central America vs. Central America (MXN)
  • South America vs. South America (ARS)

A story for why they want the enhancement, (how would it help their business process):
Clients are pushing data sets to Tableau because Tableau allows you to create different “labels” or “aliases” for each item member, which makes the above example feasible.

In addition, it would be great to have labels/alias for Modules names to decouple administrative naming constructs from names applied to published content elements.
