What about adding input fields to the dashboard widgets. Kind of like the text field but it is enabled for user input. This input field can be used in new column and new measure fields so that once the dashboard is set up the user can easily (without filtering) explore the data by entering different values such as if you had an input box for unit price. Then if you change it all the charts of total sales, revenue, etc. Will update to reflect what would happen if you increase the price by 10%. This will enable people to quickly and easily interrogate the data

Thanks for the feedback! This is something we'd like to get to in the future but don't have any plans for at the moment. We suggest checking out the visual Text filter on AppSource in the interim.

RE: input fields

Definitely a game changer. Another use case would be as a data input screen into other systems

RE: input fields

How to exploit R Visuals completely without inputs (global variables) that can then be used by the script (or even in DAX calculation) ?

RE: input fields

Yes Please!
I am working on dashboards to report on the learning progress for Neural Networks in Azure ML and it would be very handy to have userform level input fields.
