Option for cumulative values in visuals.
An option to make make a visual show cumulative values would be great. Right know you would have to create a column with a DAX formula. An option to show values cumulative in the visual settings would be much easier.
+1000 votes if I could. Having to do in DAX is a workaround but this is not something an enduser who just wants to quickly visualize will take the time (or have the skill) to do.
I agreee all theses comments. A real check box would better than lost a lot of times and tries to do the work. Its really unpowerfull.
When do you put in in a new release ?

The usage of a DAX formula for end users is definitively a very bad solution. If you get data through the Enterprise Gateway you are not able to create any DAX formula so you get stuck. This miss of feature is a real pain I agree.
This is a real pain, and frankly, for non expert users, I believe very discouraging : try to display the cumulative value of purchases made to suppliers if you don't know quite a bit of Dax

Yes, it is also for us very important to show cumulative values. Especially if the data comes from stream analytics directly to powerbi it is not possible to make dax functions. So either an option or a custom visual would help a lot.
This is the main reason that we are not adopting PowerBI. Cumulative totals are standard in PowerPivot (right click - display result as - running total in). I really cannot understand why this should be so difficult to implement in Power BI i.e. right click to get a line char to display cumulative totals!
