Comparing Calcs from different Looks/Dashboards

I was wondering if there is the ability (or will there be the ability) to pull a calc from another look. For example, we have a dashboard for our 2015 numbers and I would love to be able to pull those numbers from those looks to the 2016 dashboard for comparison on a look. So “2015 | Execs Met” the number from their can be pulled to a look called “2016 | Execs Met”. Not sure if this is possible, but would be great if it was!

To clarify, do you want to take the results of a table calculation from one look and ‘copy’ those values to another look?

Yes! Without having to manual type but it refers to the calc so if the value changes or updates, it will also update in the look it is being referred to.

Got it! You’re not able to do that in Looker, but I’ll pass the idea to our Product team - sounds like a great idea!

Thanks! Really appreciate it!
