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 see it no like just a sum, but optional aggregation type (SUN, AVG..., NoAggregation for measure subtotals with NoAggregation option by default for backward compatibility.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

I think this is silly and would downvote it if I could. If your measure doesn't give you what you want on the totals row, then you're using the wrong measure. The solution is to rewrite the measure rather than having two separate behaviours for totals in tables/matrices.

I have just had to explain this to the current client. Needless to say his answer can be summarised as what a silly

Inforiver provides you options to configure totals the way you want, out of the box. Totals can be aggregated easily using the option - Row Aggregation Type. Learn more in this blog.
