      This would be incredibly useful!! Please implement. At minimum it would be great to have the option to set data labels to only show when in Focus Mode.

          Yes, this would be incredibly useful. It's tough to tell which version was published.

            Would be a very useful feature.

                      Great point Michael! What may also be handy is to have a toggle like in Excel to temporarily disable re-calculations until all your edits are done. This way you can make all your edits and not have to wait for the model to re-calculate after each edit.

                      DaveG commented  · 

                      Thank you for all those who have voted so far!

                      If any Microsoft Teams are reading this I'd like to note that when I mention "excel-like" interface - it does not need any fancy functionality - a simple editable table like shown in the mockup would be an enormous time saver. Further functionality can be added later (like tracing dependents, formula drag-down, DAX syntax coloring, etc), but this basic editable table would be a 1000x improvement compared to clicking each measure individually. Imagine needing to create 50 measures: currently you need to press "Create new measure" and edit the formula each one at a time. With this proposed design you can create them once in PowerBI OR quickly in a table in Excel, and then simply paste them all into the existing PBIX or any other going forward. This would make collaborating between team members much easier, as well as allow you to seamlessly create standardized measure templates for all team members to use. Thanks for reading.

                      DaveG commented  · 

                      One huge benefit that this measure management system solves that is not mentioned above is it allows users to easily copy ALL measures and calculated columns from one PBIX to another. They can also be extracted to an Excel file for easy reference.

                        I've prepared a mockup for this as well as a DAX Editor. Let me know what you think. In the grid you could add a column to label each measure and group them together.

                                      This what is really needed. Anyone who uses PowerBI long enough has had a project where the PBIX has 50-60 measures and it has become time consuming and tedious to mantain. In Excel you can do a quick find/replace to edit several formulas - in PowerBI you need to select each one. An "excel-like" interface for editing measures would save a lot of time! This would take PowerBI to the next level regarding productivity. Thank you Anabel for posting this.

                                        This is very important and what will take PowerBI to the next level regarding productivity. Today most people who use PowerBI daily have a PBIX with 50+ measures and it becomes very challenging to mantain. AT MINIMUM, adding a GUI with a table of listing each measure would be SUPER HELPFUL!

                                        Here is a mockup: https://i.imgur.com/z6TBOQb.png?1

                                          Critical functionality for adoption in my company and many others.

                                          Many BI Platforms have this basic feature. PowerBI's current export to excel feature is misleading. User's (especially corporate execs) do not have time or expertise to manually recreate a matrix view they see in a Power BI report within Excel for a presentation or to do some quick ad-hoc calculations. Just give the option to extract the current view. Thank you.
