As of Looker 3.16, fields that are preceded with a period, in order to remove the view name, will no longer remove that view name.


Old Behavior


Before Looker 3.16, it was possible to remove the view name from a field, throughout Looker’s UI (such as the Explore page), by starting the field name with a period.


For example, this LookML:


- view: order
fields:
- dimension: price
...

Would appear as:


ORDER Price


Whereas this LookML:


- view: order
fields:
- dimension: .price
...

Would appear as:


Price


New Options


As of Looker 3.20, you can use view_label to achieve the same behavior. For example:


- view: order
fields:
- dimension: price
view_label: ''
