In May 2017 Power BI Desktop started supporting creation of DAX measures when working in live connect mode to an external SSAS model: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-feature-summary/

Vote on this idea if you want support for calculated columns in this mode as well!
STATUS DETAILS
Planned
2022 Release Wave 1

while not exactly implemented as described, with the release of DQ/AS, the user story is covered and the feature is probably not going to be built separately.

Really in need of creating calculated columns when connected to SSAS Live from PBI Desktop. In our org, to deploy SSAS changes, we need huge process in place. Only PBI changes is in hands of power users. Giving this contol will be a huge advantage for many users.

Any updates on this?

Enabling Calculated Columns to be created during live connection will be a really good feature to add in.

yes create calculated column , Hierarchy and DAX Calculated Table will be very useful for Power Bi so that all can be created in Reporting Power BI Layer instead of doing same in Tabular Model with Live connection .

I'm using the august version of Power BI Desktop and need to be able to add calculated measures on top of a live SSAS multidimensional connection. When will this be available ?

I am using Power BI version 2.58 and using SSAS live connection but new measure button was no enabled, I can't use it. And I also go to option to enable also new feature, seems no improvement. Any other setting / patch / license (I'm using Pro) needs ?
