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

As my organization is transitioning a large amount of reporting to Power BI, this would be an invaluable asset. This feature would enable us to eliminate the need for additional ad-hoc reports.

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

Here are two very important benefits of Expand/Collapse Column Headers. It is Even better if we can just Hide (remove) them from the Viz like in TABLEAU":

* Enable you to use Dynamic Title freely.
* Enable you to Lock the sort order because users cannot click on the Headers if they are Collapsed or Hidden.

RE: Add expand/collapse feature to column headers

Most of the account reports with date field as column header need drill down feature with collapse option(+/-). It will be great if matrix visual can have this option.

Yes agree this is critical ... in fact it is almost a decisive factor that make the customer to choose between PBI vs other tools in some cases.
