Feature Request: Dynamically format values based on parameters

Is there a way to dynamically change the format of values based on a parameter. For example, my dashboard has a drop down parameter allowing the user to change their view between Usage (numeric) or Spend (currency), there is no way to change the value itself in my visual to be ‘$’ currency or just a plain number.

Other than converting a value to a string, editing decimal places, adding columns and prefacing the value with a “$” for the Spend, can we get the ability to edit the formatting of a field dynamically off a parameter?

Hello @stormsarah !

I believe you are correct that at this time there is no way to change that dynamically using a parameter. I would say your workaround would be the best way to achieve this.

I will mark this as a feature request for the Quicksight team.
