Is it possible to have Looker field names/labels automatically reference a group label when displayed in a Look but not in the explore? For many of our explores, we have both a “Name” and “ID” field and would like to be able to create groups for the fields which reference the group name when displayed on a Look but not in the explore field itself. Similar to how time and date dimension_groups functions, where the group could be named “Shipping Date,” the fields within that group just read “Day,” “Month,” “Year,” etc, but when displayed in a Look they read “Shipping Day,” “Shipping Month,” etc

The group_label parameter doesn’t support liquid at this time, so you can’t do things like {{_explore._name}} which you can in the label parameter. I’ll pop this over into feature requests for tracking, and see if there’s a specific reason we don’t allow liquid in the group_label parameter.
