See Records Column Setup
When entering the "See Records" view, it allows you to decide which columns you view while you are in the "See Records", but after exiting "See Records" it reverts to the original view and removes the edits.
There should be an option to save the edits made within the "See Records" view so the unnecessary columns can be removed and the important information can be viewed more easily, and can be saved so the report keeps the edits made when saved.
I'm a bit flabbergasted after all this time this still hasn't been implemented as this seems like fairly basic functionality and is incredibly necessary. It doesn't need to be anything fancy, just PLEASE add this functionality to an upcoming release!
This is critical for us for the following reasons.
1. Some data used behind charts should be hidden from the end users. Should have option to turn off/on
2. The same applies to being able to export the chart. Should have option to turn off/on export data on each chart.
3. There are times when we would like to add additional columns to the "Show Data" table. I.e. alot of the charts are created using Unique keys but there are further fields that would be more useful for the end user consumption. This would help us move away from having unnecessary tables on dashboards.

This needs to be completed.
Add this functionality to filter out columns in "see records"

Much needed. Its swamping my end users with a heap of calculation columns i use for conditional formatting.

Echo everyone for their comments. This is indeed very useful to present the data to support our analysis with Power BI.

please add this functionality!
please add this functionality!
This is absolutely essential (and shouldn't be all that complicated) and can't believe this has been an open issue for more than 3 years. PLEASE make this a priority!

Really need this, seems like a basic function that should've been there for years.
using the On premise Desktop (September 2019), this is very important to be able to customize the Show records view.

This would be very helpful!Thanks!
This would be very helpful!

That would be very helpful.
It really needs to be fixed, able to customize and default the information
details / show data for each graph.
Agree with all comments below. Think from business users perspective, after seeing the visual, which is great, the next intuitive thing that follows is to drill down into the records to see exactly what is the cause of the number showing up.
Without the ability to customize the fields of users' needs, this function is basically useless. This should be one of the basic fundamentals of PowerBI. I'm surprised it is still not available since the idea is raised 3 years ago!
This is one reason PowerBI is still not one of the leading BI tools out there. Compeititors are moving much faster! Mircrosoft, you definitely have the capacity and we expect more from you!
