    From the comments and scenarios everyone’s describing, the problem is really that you need a way to allow end-users to change which measure is displayed in a visual on the fly.

    As a few folks have mentioned, the FORMAT function might help in the interim, as long as you’re showing the results in text rather than a chart. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/format-function-dax has details on how to use that.

    The expression-based formatting feature that we’ve started work on may help to a certain extent, but that’s really designed to change a visual’s properties rather than the data type or format. We’ll look into extending that work to support this scenario as well.

    We’re moving this to Backlog status – our core plan is to build ways that end-users can change the dimensions or measures that are visible in a chart on the fly. They’ll be able to explore much more freely rather than…

    I ran into a time-consuming trouble shooting, just because I couldnt see, which dataset connections could not be established to the gateway. Pls show us the connections just like the list we get, if the gateway connection is fully successful - but with a status for each connection, after we select the desired gateway...
    THANK YOU!

    - and also for onPremise Gateway. :-)

    We’re pleased to announce that in the May release of Power BI Desktop you can now define incremental refresh policies for your models.

    At present these only apply once the model is published to a Premium workspace in the Power BI service; we’ll be bringing it to all Pro users in the future.

    You can read more about it in our blog here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-may-2018-feature-summary/#incrementalRefresh

    We’re going to leave this idea open for now, so please give us your feedback while we’re in this preview phase!
