Feature Request: Query Sets/Explore Templates

(Ben Silverstein) #1

There’s often a group of complementary fields I find myself building for users to include as present filters, dimensions and/or measures (say, a cohort analysis with a specific group of measures, as well as a couple of options for date ranges or dimensions). While sets allow developers to recycle a list, it would be great if in an Explore’s LookML, you could define a query_set. Then, any filters/parameters/dimensions/measures included in the query set would be added and removed from a query together (with one click) when a business user adds/subtracts one of the fields. Perhaps a prompt or an icon showing multiple fields would keep this clear to business users.

As a stretch goal, I get the feeling the ability for business users to create and save and recycle these query sets/templates would be super powerful.
