Rename Dimension and Metric Labels

You can rename metric and dimension labels in cards to make their names self-explanatory. This feature is particularly useful when your report shows general concepts such as Custom Event Count and Custom Event Value. Without knowing the filter that determines those metric or dimension values, those values could be difficult to interpret.
