    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…

    OK MS, is this on the roadmap or NOT? 4 years is along time to wait. If you aren't going to tackle it, please let everyone know.

    The existing custom visual for this is now being flagged as obsolescent in PBI DT, so its end is close unless it gets overhauled by the supplier.

    Nearly 4 years, on. Any updates on where this is going? Ragged/Natural Hierarchy handling has a lot of limitations in PBI, but a lot of applications in Org and Financial reporting.

    This would go a long way to improving the self service capabilities for users.

    Thanks for all the feedback on this! We are definitely planning on adding Incremental refresh to Pro. Do know though that it is a fair amount of work, so it may be a bit before we can give you a more firm timeline.

    In the meantime, keep voting so you’re notified when we do have more information to share!

    I think my use case is similar.

    We use Custom URLs on dashboards to send users to pre-filtered versions of reports.

    On these reports we have a Navigation Page that uses Images (of buttons) linked to bookmarks to navigate to various pages of the report.

    We would like to use an Image tile on many dashboards (that point to the same report) and have it go to the Navigation page of the Report, with its URL filter. We then want the user to be able to click the buttons on the Nav page and jump to various report pages, BUT retain the URL filter. Currently, since the Bookmark applies the filters it was saved with, it in effect ignores the URL Filter, though the URL filter remains in the Browser URL.

    It would be great if the Bookmark could be set to accept the existing filters (including URL ones) and just change the page.

    We have a current workaround which is to hit refresh on the browser after the Button has navigated via the bookmark to the new page. However this means the users initially see the wrong set of data.
