      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 can't believe that this idea has not been implemented. The inability to conditionally format values with the SWITCH function is a severe limitation on what would otherwise be a very elegant and useful reporting function.

              Thanks for your votes and comments! We’re building out our email subscriptions feature in the Power BI cloud service. For example, today, you can subscribe only yourself to a report, but we’re working on enabling you to subscribe other people as well. There are also some technical barriers to integrating the current implementation into an on-premises server. Once it’s a little further along, it’s something we’d love to bring to Power BI Report Server. For now, consider it on our backlog.

              Most organizations have power users who will go to the PBI Service and review the necessary reports and other users who will never read anything unless it is pushed right in front of them. That is why it is critical for administrators to have the ability to enter email subscriptions to send reports to other users. Looking forward to having this implemented!
