In May 2017 Power BI Desktop started supporting creation of DAX measures when working in live connect mode to an external SSAS model: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-feature-summary/


Vote on this idea if you want support for calculated measures against multidimensional models too.

I am evaluating PowerBI, I don't believe that this function is not enabled yet. Power BI is not a real BI Tool, disappointed

We still need this functionality! I've had to roll back to old versions of Power BI Desktop in order to preserve this feature.
This is essential when Power BI developers are building reports based on SSAS MD, where changes to the cube take way too long to implement (needing tickets, meetings, approvals, etc.). Give us back our agility!
