Data studio: Jump into field editing from data overview

Sander 9 months ago in Data Studio updated by Stéphane Hamel 8 months ago 4

Editing a custom field (metric) you currently have in use is a hassle! When you select the edit button you just get some display options. I need to click "Create new field" in the bottom right. Then from there do "All fields" then search for the field I want to edit, then i can edit it.

For filters this UX is there. If you add a filter to a table/graph then when you hover over it in the list of filters there is a edit button and you edit that filter directly there. Custom fields (metrics) don't have this, they should!

Well... sadly... after looking into it more carefully, there's no easy way to do it because the field element shown on the page doesn't have any indication if it's a custom field or not. I will park this for now but keep it as a potential feature in the future, once I have worked a little bit more on the more advanced modules which will bring subscribers value.
