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

I've used this feature in Spotfire and it's very usefull. This can give to PowerBI a big boost and open more possibilities to analyze and discover the datas.

RE: input fields

I know this feature as a parameter in Tableau. A very powerful feature that provides all sorts of options to make your reports and dashboards far more powerful and easy to use at the same time.

RE: input fields

Agree, with and Input field option combined with DAX, we might be able to implement what-if analysis scenarios
