In Table Next, you can freely drag columns around in the visualization.
In Table Legacy, the order of the visualization is dependent on the order of the columns in the data table. You can drag the columns to change the order of the series. However, you can't drag between different types of columns.
Workaround for Table Legacy
It's true that you can't drag columns between different types of columns. There are 4 main types of columns:
- Table Calculations based on dimensions ("green dimensions")
- Table Calculations based on measures ("green measures")
You can freely drag columns that are the same type between other columns of the same type.
Thus, a workaround for reorganizing any column is to make all desired fields into "green measures"!
- To turn a measure into a green measure, simply make a new table calculation with the measure definition.
- To turn a dimension or green dimension into a green measure, make a new table calculation that includes a measure or green measure like the workarounds in this article.
