Looker_Support are there any plans to allow for defining and applying a dimension group_label for dimension/measure/filter sets?

I imagine you are thinking about adding a group_label parameter to a set definition, like this:



set: detail {

group_label: "label"

fields: [

id,

last_name,

first_name,

events.count,

orders.count,

user_data.count

]}



If so, can you please describe how it would be helpful? This will be valuable context to share with the product team.

I’m 3 years late to this party, but I do think it would be helpful. Sometimes you want to use dimensions/measures differently across explores. It seems cleaner to apply a group label to a set than to duplicate and rename dimensions or duplicate and rename the view to apply different group labels.
