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.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

There should be an option definately to either show the total of the rows above, OR show in the total field the measure as evaluated in its context. That way you can finally sum up measures in matrices reliably

Did you figure this out? If so, how?

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

This is very annoying: in Qlik View there is a very simple option to show in the total the result of the formula or the sum of the row values! Please solve this issue asap!!!

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

This is ridiculous - there are people in my organization that are starting to refuse to use Power BI because of this issue alone...

Please resolve this issue, there is really no reason for it not to be a sum in a visual like this.

URGENT

Microsoft, please create the function of Running totals in the Dashboard, it is a presentation function, not data nor Dax.

Not having a running total in the Dashboard is a Nock Out critieria in the selection of BI tools.

Dear coleagues, please vote in the following idea, which is under review by Microsoft:
