  2. In the Visualize screen, you can see the unique measure(s).
  3. Select and acquire a second dataset based on the same data source.
  4. Go to Data > Combine As > Append.... > map the datasets and click Append.
  5. After some procesing, the datasets will be unioned. However, in the Vizualize screen, the measure is duplicated.
