You can use the view_name.field_name syntax to reference a field from another view in drill fields.

drill_fields: [field1, view2.field2]

Is there a way to rename the dimension in the drill results that come in?  For example: My dimension is called ‘Name’ in the view being queried, but other dimension being pulled in is also called ‘Name’ in that view (i.e. view2.Name).  The end result in my drill down is a little confusing to end users since it’s called name in both, would love to have the option to call the dimension something else for the purpose of the drilldown.
