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

Most, if not all of the code necessary already exists in Power BI. Stacked visuals already display totals that are a sum of the category and already handles having too many categories (rows).

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

And, separate but adding to this requested feature, a UI element to indicate the use of a measure total that does not correspond to the sum of all rows. Because any end-user that hasn't ever made a data model will never find that out by themselves.

This has been ignored for far too long.

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

I was told by someone more knowledgeable than me that DAX cannot count rows in a viz. If someone has a solution to this I'd be happy to read it!

RE: Matrix/Table grand totals with Measures

It was a while since that bug was reported and you didn't fix it. I worked with Tableau and they were reacted much faster and I never noticed such significant bugs as that one. It is really crazy how this big issue can be ignored.
