How can we improve Power BI?

Default measure format to comma and zero decimals

Every time I create a measure I have to format it as “,” and 0 decimals. This appears to be the most common format and it would make sense to make this the default.

        Or at least let us set these preferences in a blank file we can save as a PBIT and start from there.

        Settings the default format for all data types globally, and at the report level would be fantastic.

        Now data profiling has made its way into Power BI, the default should be appropriate to the data.
