    You can do this with Cortana - Enable the data set for Cortana, and she can find a report, run it, and pass a filter parameter. e.g. "Cortana What are store sales in North America?" should return the Store Sales report, and filter for North America.

    To add, this used to work before using themes. If I explicitly set the color in the report, the dashboard respects, but using the new theme feature it fails to respect the theme colors.

    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…

    Distributing datasets is possible in the PBI service today via the following steps:

    1) As the sharer, go to the gear > “Create Content Pack” > add the dataset you’d like to share – optionally, you may also choose to add additional datasets, report, or dashboards

    2) As the recipient, go to Get Data > “My Organization” and select the content pack created in step 1

    3) Click on the “…” in the dataset that is added to your workspace, and click “Make a copy”

    The recipient can then start creating reports based on the new dataset.

    Does this meet your needs? Please let us know via comments or e-mail.
