    I'm an accountant and in all of our Excel based reports we prefer to have negative numbers in brackets and in red. This is a fairly common practice.

    The flexibility of Excel number formatting is great. We need this in Power BI

    It would be great if I could duplicate a measure when I'm making a very similar measure. Essentially the same thing as when we duplicate a query in query editor.

    There's a trick you can use to do measure groups:

    However would be better if there was a button to create these as this is a very well hidden feature.

    This is quite a basic function that rivals have been doing for some time.

    The relative date slicer (a Preview feature as of June ‘17) gets us close to this with the ’This Month’ or ‘This Year’ settings. That is a dynamic date selection that updates based on the current system date. We plan to add a ‘YTD’/‘MTD’ option to specifically select a range from the start of the month/year up to today, hopefully that’ll address the remaining requirements!

    Can we have the ability to select the baseline for YTD/QTD etc. A lot of companies don't start their financial year in January.
