It would be great if Grand Totals on a Matrix or Table would add up correctly to the sum of the rows when you include MEASURES in the visual. Currently the total on a measure consists of the measure function itself, instead of the sum of the rows above. PLEASE give us the option to toggle totals to be a simple aggregate of the rows above also.

Moving this idea to "under review" to mark that discussions are underway. For full transparency, we have started working on DAX calculations at the visual level. That feature will make changes that will serve as building blocks for other features, including but not limited to the one discussed in this idea: providing more flexibility for influencing what is shown on the total: the visual total, the "DAX" total, or another expression altogether.

Hence, the delivery of this Idea will be dependent on the DAX-calculations-on-a-visual feature.

I have used Qlik for a very long time and this feature is available since I have started using it many years ago. This would be very useful addition to Power BI.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

This is straightforward in Tableau, Qlik, or Excel. Its lack of flexibility in Power BI delays development, and when the data model is complex, sometimes this just doesn't work. Please solve it ASAP!

Not to mention that Qlik has this feature since QlikView...

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

I think it could be a choice. Maybe we could have a parameter in the matrix settings to select the optimal behavior for total calculations in each situation.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

As a user coming from Tableau this is is so infuriating that I can’t simply toggle between totals being calculated on a visual level, or on using the underlying calc. Using sumx to correct this can get difficult with using virtual tables. - please make this easier for your users!
