Cannot rename table in Fabric Dataset ?

Hi,

 

When creating new dataset or Semantic Model inside Fabric, can after it was created, we rename the table's name ?

For example this is my new semantic model :

I just want to rename those table like "dimdate" to more friendly like "Dates" or "Calendar".

 

I also try to look at Power BI Desktop, right after I'm using this Dataaset, seems there is no "Rename" function.

 

I know I can change it in the Lakehouse, but I'm not intented to rename it at here, as this is to me like a technical place which is supposed to have those kind of "technical" name.

Hi @KenMann 

Looks like your model is in a live connection mode therefore you can't change the name of tables in Power BI. Adding an import table to the model (composite Model) can open the optin to rename the tables.
