Named filters to work with MEASURES?

The >/</= etc. operands in named filters are great... except they won't work with measures ('native' or calculated - and what a boon it would be if  they could work with both). 


Are there any plans to add this capability?


And are there any plans to have a 'named filter' control within widgets that would let you change the operand?

Have you tried creating a "Searchable Measure"? This may partially solve your problem. Checking the "Searchable" option in Architect for a measure will make the measure available within a Named Filter. It will also allow you to create a filter control on a widget with the measure.

This is not available for calculated measures because creating a "Searchable" measure creates a special index on that measure (this index is populated at build/synchronize time).
