Changing field names
Is there a way to change the naming of a field output. Our organization names are long and take up a lot of space on a chart. I would like to shorten the names so they appear cleaner on the chart. Can this be done in beast mode and can you give me an example.
Example: Mount Carmel Health System change to MCHS
I would need to do this with about 20 organization names
From what I'm understanding you're asking about renaming the column / field name and not the values in the field itself?
You can do this several ways, the first is when editing a card you can select the field displayed in the x-axis/y-axis/series etc section on top of the graph and put a value into the Data Label field. You'd have to do this for all cards though.
Another option would be to utilize a Select Column tile and a Magic ETL DataFlow to rename the columns.
A third option (if you have access to the beta) is to utilize a DataView and rename the columns in the view itself which would update automatically when the underlying dataset is run which is likely the best option if you have access.**Was this post helpful? Click Agree or Like below**

Do you want to rename columns or do you want to rename the VALUES in the column?
I think @GrantSmith is describing renaming columns and what you actually want to do is remap values.
If you're after the later,
You can build a beast mode with a CASE statement
CASE when `Company Name` = CompanyLongName' then 'A'
when `Company Name` = CompanyLongNameB' then 'B'
ELSE `Company Name`
What I would do is actually create a Webform with two columns
then JOIN the webform to my data using a FUSION or a DataSet View (it's a beta feature talk to your CSM)
then build a beastmode
