It would be great if Grand Totals on a Matrix or Table would add up correctly to the sum of the rows when you include MEASURES in the visual. Currently the total on a measure consists of the measure function itself, instead of the sum of the rows above. PLEASE give us the option to toggle totals to be a simple aggregate of the rows above also.

Moving this idea to "under review" to mark that discussions are underway. For full transparency, we have started working on DAX calculations at the visual level. That feature will make changes that will serve as building blocks for other features, including but not limited to the one discussed in this idea: providing more flexibility for influencing what is shown on the total: the visual total, the "DAX" total, or another expression altogether.

Hence, the delivery of this Idea will be dependent on the DAX-calculations-on-a-visual feature.

Matrix total calculation option

Add an option to select how a total of a matrix should be calculated within a measurement. By SUM the underlying values, AVERAGE or by calculating based on the measurement itself. A lot of my reports are based on low-structure data that is calculated to higher levels. But the...

Allow for No Summarization of Values in the Matrix Visual

When setting values in the matrix visual there are no options to use a non-summarized value, instead they all must be summed, averaged, min, max, etc. We have seen this become an issue when using a DAX measure as the value. The measure will calculate correctly for each line item in the matrix but...

Subtotals in table views

Subtotals in tables should really be adjustable by column just like in excel pivot where you can enable / disable by column. It would give many of the table views a much smarter and more condensed expression. As it is now, subtotals also controls column totals which I find confusing.

Accumulating Sub Totals

The ability to add accumulating sub totals into a matrix table in Power BI. So for example Income, cost of sales and then a subtotal called gross profit, then overheads and another subtotal called net profit. The net profit would be a calculation of gross profit + overheads and not just total the...

Provide options for Matrix and Table "Total"s

Getting the right "total" on a matrix/table visual remains something that confuses many (e.g., many questions in the community). It would be great to have the option to choose how the "total" is calculated. The user should be able to choose the current behavior (i.e., no row filters) but also o...

Do not subtotal or total values in matrix/table

In a matrix we sometimes add a currency value and the converted sterling equivalent.  The total for the sterling equivalent is needed - but then the total on the currency value is a nonsense number.  In field formatting we mess around to hide that total using colours but really it shoul...

Option for measures to 'show totals as' with options such as sum, average, median, etc

Hello all,I have been struggling with incorrect totals in hierarchies while using a measure. I understand this is caused by a lack of context for the 'totals' row. What I don't understand why an incorrect value is shown by default. This is confusing and off-p...

DAX - Summing Measures

Add, please, easy variant to sum measures in total rows, for example, in check-button: - sometimes we have to sum measures in total row (see reference), - sometimes we want to get result of measure calculation as it is http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/DAX-sum-measures/td-p/24364
