As an employee of a large multinational company, it's hard for me to move away from Framework Manager models towards data modules as it's still impossible to add translations to them. The ability to create multi-lingual models is way overdue and i...
Ability to "view lineage" on data sources when creating queries in a data set (mimic existing ability from query building in reporting )
similar to building a report, it is helpful to check lineage on field sources when building datasets. In reporting , once a source is added user may right click on any field name, select lineage, change radio button to detail and view the complete...
Advanced query hint to use 'Group By' instead of 'Distinct' in SQL

As a data analyst I want to be able to change the source of a dataset. This is necessary when it has been moved or the location name has been changed. We know where the source is, but there's no way we can change the source.
Data Module created from Data Server with multiple connections should be able to use any connection
