Let's say I have a dimension that I want to see multiple aggregations for one at a time!

We can create a parameter with n number of allowed values depending on the number of measures you wish to display:

From here, we can create a measure with liquid that listens to the parameter value declared above and then chooses the corresponding measure to display:

You can then add the dimension and dynamic measure to an explore, save it to a dashboard, and then add a dashboard filter on that parameter:

You should then see similar functionality to this:

Congratulations! You've now made a dynamic measure that users can interact with! :)

think this is what I’m trying to accomplish, but the image tags in the post seem to be broken. Any chance you still have the image files available/can update the post with them.
