Rename hierarchy levels in the dimension editor

You can now rename hierarchy levels directly in the new experience dimension editor.

About this task

By default, levels within a hierarchy are named level000 (highest level of consolidation), level001, level002, and so on.

You can assign custom level names in the dimension editor to make hierarchy levels more easily identifiable. For example, the Product hierarchy has three levels corresponding to Category, Brand, and Product. Customizing the levels with the relevant names makes it easier to work in the hierarchy.

  2. Click the Action button next to the Hierarchy label, then click Customize level names.Custom levelnames option on the Action button
  3. Enter a custom name for each hierarchy level.
