Evan, Speaking of Dynamic Filters, is there a way to customize the labels like we do for the report column headers? Sometimes, based on the relationships and the source of the fields. their names are too lengthy with dashes and what not. So in the reports as well as on forms one can customize the column headers/field labels, right? Similarly, we want to give customize the labels for the fields used in the dynamic filters too so they are user friendly.I have made this request on user voice a long time ago and wish Quick Base helps us out there.

That isn't something that currently exists without renaming the field unfortunately Surya. A work around would be to create a formula field with the simplified name and then use that simplified field as your dynamic filter. That way it will have the exact right name for the Dynamic filter and since it is a formula field it can be set to just perfectly mirror the values in your actual fields. It requires a little extra work but can help to create that effect you are looking for. 

I would also recommend throwing a link to that User Voice here in the post so that others who see this can also add their vote as well since newer users might not have seen it yet.
