How can we improve Power BI?

Totals in stacked column charts

During several presentations I get questions regarding the total of stacked columns. In the current situation you can select to label all the parts of the stacked column but no grand total. I would like to see the option to add a label to the Visuals which shows the total of the stacked column (this counts for values only). Ideally this total would deviate together with the drilldowns you select, so it stays interactive whatever filters you select or subsets you create on your dashboard.

        We def. need this! I feel like this should be very easy feature add. And great if we didn't have to use a secondary axis as well.

        This is great. I have been asked all the time to manually add the total in the stack bar charts.

        This would also solve a similar issue I am having with data labels on dates where the total is 0 - each category is too small to contain the label, so no label is shown (in this case the total would still show 0)

        must needed..alternatively I am having a card for each legend and placed on top of each bars, which is not at all preferable but serves my need for now
