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.

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.

Something similar to Tabular Editor would be absolutely great!

I need this

A 'find' feature for the GUI is also relevant, as it helps one to quickly jump to a column in a query (M Language) or in DAX.

Your mockup is beatiful, i'd vote for that reason alone1 + very very useful.

I love it! But definitely needs grouping! It's so hard to keep things organized for my own use, let alone collaborating with others on dev. I have well over 100 measures in a couple of my pbix files, and while strict naming conventions help, mine seem to render the Q&A useless.

any progress on this? it's may already!

Nice! Also kudos to the maker of the Mockup!

D

I agree

D

this would really help ease the job, hope to see this feature soon.

In PBI Report Server too!
