Team is working on migrating our existing reports from Insights to Explore. We have a large number of custom metrics created, which are sorted in Insights with a folder structure. It appears that Explore doesn't have a folder structure for saving metrics, but you can silo them in data sets.
Are there plans to allow the creation of metrics outside of queries, and allow them to be managed outside of queries as well?
Is there any way to sort custom metrics by name?
Currently the list shows them in the order they have been created. Due to the differences in the custom metric language. We often find that to recreate metrics that we use in insights, we have to create sub-metric to then be used. (For example, you can't SUM an IF/THEN statement in a custom metric formula. I need to make a separate IF/THEN Metric that sums the data I need, and then use that custom metric in another Custom Metric data formula)
This often makes it hard to find metrics due the additional metrics created as well as not being sorted by name.
