Anyone who uses PowerBI long enough has had a PBIX with 50-60 measures and it has become time consuming and tedious to mantain.

Measure Management - Dynamic mapping

Having a dynamic mapping, ideally done in the query editor, so that a dashboard designed for a particular data set can be fully or partly reused for another data set that has different measure names and potentially not all of measures.
