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: ''
