Vote on this idea if you want expand/collapse on column headers in the matrix similar to what was shipped for row headers in November (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-november-2018-feature-summary/#expandCollapse).

10/20/2022 - Just an update, this is an extremely expensive item, which is why it has not been picked up yet. I promise we will revisit this after we ship visual calculations

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

Really love a similar feature in Excel. I have a very wide matrix visual in PBI and it'd be nice to collapse groups of them and let the user choose their own destiny so to speak.Wonder if this could be done using calculation groups or something... But would be nice to have feature built in directly in visual.

This would be great to simplify the drill on that some users not understand

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

This is a standard feature with Qlik... has been for several years... can you please add this for Power BI?

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

Please implement this functionality. I am working on migrating some excel reports to PBI. As users have this feature in excel, they need to see it in PBI also.

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

just a meta comment. it is extremely deflating having the "top idea" be an idea submitted almost four years ago with a bunch of comments and still "under review"maybe highlight some successes on the front page? unless you're going for the "don't even try"

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

Try out the expand/collapse hierarchy option in Inforiver for Microsoft Power BI!Some other useful features that are available - Group column headers, Support for ragged hierarchy (especially useful for financial reporting).

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

This feature is directly available in Excel with Group & Ungroup Columns, than why that design cant be enabled in Power BI Table & Matrix visuals
