Creating Synonyms

As an administrator, learn how to enhance query capabilities for the Just Ask feature by creating synonyms for measure and dimension names.
April 23, 2024


To enhance user query capabilities in Just Ask, administrators have the option to create synonyms for both measure and dimension names. These synonyms can then be utilized during data querying. They will also be included as suggestions in the auto-complete feature within the search field and incorporated into subsequent results and visualizations when employed in a query.

Creating a Synonym

To create a synonym:


Click Manage Models within Just Ask.


Select the All Models tab and then click the More Options for the desired model.


Ensure that the Overview tab is selected, and then click on the Dimension (row) for which you would like to create a synonym within the Data section.


Select the Synonyms tab for the Dimension selected and then type in the desired synonyms (hitting the Enter key to submit each word).


Click the Save button to save your changes.
