New Feature  Variable Measure is now available to support disaggregating measures.

This allows users the ability to add as many disaggregated measures as needed and these will be seen only within the parent measure comparison graph and/or used in calculations for the parent measure. Variable measures save space by not displaying as individual measures on a scorecard, allowing for a more streamlined look and feel.
