PAW - Store user defined calculation

End-users create calculation all the time in PAW views. However, they have no way to save these calculations in case they want to use it in another view. There’s no workaround, they have to re-create the calculation every time they need it.

I've attached to the idea a proposed solution. Making that change would a huge time saver for end-users because they wouldn’t be forced to re-create a frequently used calculation each time they need it

    Please note that calculations are currently stored in the MDX query in the PAW cube view. We are planning on making some enhancements to make it more obvious that a row or column is a calculation vs rule derived cells. We are also planning enhancements to edit and rename calculations on the cube viewer. Calculations are shared in PAW by sharing the cube view that holds the calculation.
