only 50 or 60 measures........
Some companies don't allow third party software because of security issue. Which mean Power BI is seen as a standalone tool. Mesure & table management is most likely a must have asset to not lose a customer for a competing company
I'm sure the community tools are great. But, like many I'm in a locked down organisational setting and getting access to these would take an effort of persuasion and promotion I just don't have time for. If the "community tools" are approved by you then PBi should ship with them pre-loaded (or at least available to load).
The idea "List where a column or measure is used in a report" would be very useful as part of this.
Since the encouraged method is to have a separate model and reporting, it would also be helpful to trace dependencies between reports.
In SSAS Multi multidimensional, there was an option for editing all measures in script mode.
That was awesome and very easy to mange.
But in power BI it seems Microsoft is going in reverse direction, that kind of functionality is expected by default.
I don't think that it's ideal to have to lean on community tools to do this, they should be built into Power BI by default.
One big problem with using the current external tools is that modifying TOM objects (table names, measure names, column names) BREAKS ALL RELATED VISUALS.

Update 10/17: This is now in our upcoming roadmap and we will share more details in the coming months. Mo
We've been leaning on the community tools like Tabular Editor, DAX Studio, BISM Normalizer, to provide high-end DAX editing capabilities. We don't have any short-term plans to add more DAX management tools to the product, but we'll be looking at ways to better integrate those tools.
