Please allow users to rename totals in the Table and Matrix visual. This is a very important feature to be able to label what the total means for a specific report (e.g. Month Actual adding up to YTD Actual) rather than simply "total". For the time being the only solution is to put a text box over to which goes away in focus mode, etc. Thank you!
As of the June 2019 release this is available! https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-june-2019-feature-summary/#totalLabels
Thanks for voting!
Been struggling with this and a text box with "Average" moving slightly depending on screen size.
Even I am struck with the same issue. I want to rename "Total" as " Profit ". Kindly provide the access to change label name. I am waiting for the Solution.
Please make this idea possible , Power BI team.
