Can you track how measures and dimensions are used in cards from a certain dataset?

edited February 17 in Ideas Exchange

I think it would be beneficial to have the ability to look at the impacts of changing a dataset.  I envision the product telling you what dimensions and measures are used in cards attached to the datasets.  Additionally, what dimensions and measures are used in dataflows/output datasets downstream from the original dataset. This would save time by removing the manual process of checking every card and dataflow/dataset attached to make sure your changes won't affect anything downstream.

  • I agree that this would be amazing.  Perhaps a quicker request would be to indicate if any of the fields are being used in any "certified" content.
