Anyone who uses PowerBI long enough has had a PBIX with 50-60 measures and it has become time consuming and tedious to mantain. In Excel you can do a quick find/replace to edit several formulas - in PowerBI you need to select each one individually. An "excel-like" interface for editing measures would save a lot of time! This would take PowerBI to the next level regarding productivity. I've prepared a mockup for this as well as a DAX Editor. Let me know what you think.

Update 10/17: This is now in our upcoming roadmap and we will share more details in the coming months. Mo

We've been leaning on the community tools like Tabular Editor, DAX Studio, BISM Normalizer, to provide high-end DAX editing capabilities. We don't have any short-term plans to add more DAX management tools to the product, but we'll be looking at ways to better integrate those tools.

Some companies don't allow third party software because of security issue. Which mean Power BI is seen as a standalone tool. Mesure & table management is most likely a must have asset to not lose a customer for a competing company

I'm sure the community tools are great. But, like many I'm in a locked down organisational setting and getting access to these would take an effort of persuasion and promotion I just don't have time for. If the "community tools" are approved by you then PBi should ship with them pre-loaded (or at least available to load).

The idea "List where a column or measure is used in a report" would be very useful as part of this.


Since the encouraged method is to have a separate model and reporting, it would also be helpful to trace dependencies between reports.
