Adding the hide option will control the visibility for end user and at the same time can use hide column for default sorting.

RE: Hide/Show Column on Table

This feature is very important as otherwise we have to duplicate a page in desktop layout, doing necessary edits/delections on columns in the new page and re-do the mobile layout on the new page. This also implies keeping the new page aligned with the original one manually (in case of introduction of new filters on data, for example) and this is not recommended.Chiara

This feature would be a game-changer.

RE: Hide/Show Column on Table

Often a drill through/down requires a "key" column for the related records. It would be great to be able to have a feature whereby you could add the key as a hidden column on visuals, purely so that they can be used when drilling through to related records/reports. At the moment you must show any fields in a visual where you want to drill from, and having to have a key column not only takes up space, but for the end user is meaningless.

Would be nice to be able to have a hidden column in grid used to sort the grid - and still use it in tooltip like 'Days since last update'.

In a PBI Embedded scenario (app as a service), users want the ability to show/hide a column in a table.

RE: Hide/Show Column on Table

We need to show count of text fields in the total bar, which again is not supported in Power BI. But somehow managed to create a measure that will show texts in the table and aggregation (count of rows in our case) in the total bar. But this has a limitation that it requires the original column to be in the table visualization, so it is required that we are able to hide it.

We are exploring ways to alter a single table field output to display from cumulative sum to % values basing on text selection.And, the show and hide column feature is very useful. This feature is available in other tools like SAP WebI.

RE: Hide/Show Column on Table

I needed to sort a table by calculated column but did not want to show the column because it took up space

RE: Hide/Show Column on Table

I think the ability to hide a column in a visual is basic functionality, especially if you want to create dynamic measures to use the hidden column for filtering rows!
