Matrix Measures or Values on Rows instead of Columns
We need Matrix’s to have the ability to move Measures or Values to rows instead of Columns. This is a definite must have!!! I was in the process of doing a pilot roll out of Power BI to my management team and when this question came up it was a huge miss and got a tremendous amount of groans. This is an everyday view we use and really need this for Power BI to cover the basics. I love the program but we really need this. Please help!
To elaborate, if I have sales, quantity sold, asp (average sales price), COGS, Gross Profit and Margin, There’s no way to look at this month over month when the measures are stuck on the columns. It needs to be able to showcase on rows.
Thanks for your consideration!
Hi everyone – quick update to say this is definitely something we’re planning to address and add to our matrix visual. We’ve got a set of enhancements coming to the matrix, so please stay tuned!
thanks for supporting the idea

Came across this issue today trying to build a trending view in the dashboard. While I still believe Power BI is the best place to assemble the data and calculate the measures I now have to export to Excel to achieve Management's desired format. In general the ability to cross-tab the data is a critical function for data analysis and I am excited that this will soon be added.

I didn't realise this wasn't possible until today (Power BI does so much already I assumed this would be fine). Good to hear it's planned. Hope you guys understand just how much the monthly updates are anticipated? I've not been this excited about reporting - ever.
Hope this one arrives soon - but not before printing from the Power BI Desktop!!!
Is this also for the data tab?
In the Interim, what is the alternate way to achieve this?
Morven Ballard commented
Do you have an ETA for this please? It really is a huge disadvantage not being able to have values on rows.
Making this change would be an absolutely HUGE change. Gives analysts a way to interrogate data more easily to answer questions.
Looking forward to this being implemented.
how is this not #1

I want to calc the difference between row A and RowB into a column as well
Do you have any estimates on when this capability will be available?
Aron Fejes commented
Definitely a 'deal breaker' when considering switching from Tableau to Power BI.

Please add ability to remove sub totals in matrix. There are too many sub totals.
I agree with all of the other comments. We are building profitability reporting by various dimensions and it is a MUST to have these measures in the columns for it to be usable. Thanks for your update and consideration.
Huge miss. We´re building an executive dashboard but we´ll go with Tableau if this is not available by early February.

Thanks for the update. Is there any due date, so to consider if there is a possibility to positively impact the current implementations?
