It would be great if you could hover over a visual that contained a measure/ aggregation and be able to see the DAX code used for that measure in a tool tip or something similar. This would help transparency by serving as an integrated data dictionary of measures for complex calculations

RE: Integrated Data dictionary

This is a great idea. From a business user's perspective, it is so much easier to have the measure metadata available in the tooltip in the report than to have to flip back and forth from a separate data dictionary file.

This is available when hovering over a measure in the field list, so it can't be that difficult to expose it in the tooltip, can it?
