[WORKSPACE] Edit metric and variable name

As we can do now, we really need to be able to edit label for metrics and variables in freeform table.

We name metric and variable with technical words, but for business team it's absolutely not appreciated.

Thanks for the idea submission! Just FYI, there is a pretty good workaround for this. Set up a Virtual Report Suite and use the new curation capabilities during setup to rename your dimensions and metrics to business-friendly titles, and then expose this Virtual Report Suite to your end users so they can see the friendlier names.

Yea, I know. That was my thought as I saw the new feature. But we always need to label metric/variable with different words, they depend on reports, stakeholders, or analysis we have.

In other words, it's not just a matter of kind of user, but mainly a matter of kind of analysis.

Today we have to create many clones of the same metrics in order to have user-friendly label for each specific analysis, but that makes a lot of mess in our metrics list, and the only option is to use TAGS for group metrics by analysis.
