This is a old post, but I have found a solution that works for me. 

If you go to the "Model" tab and click the measure you can add a custom text field like "tons" as below.

Then use this measure will now show the unit of measument.

For this, You need to convert your net weights to tons using DIVIDE function. There is no auto settings for this.

 

To do this,

 Create below Measure,

 

Tons:=DIVIDE(Sum(Table1[NET WEIGHT]), 0.00110231,2)

 

This will give you the expected results.

Thanks & Regards,

Sorry, the values are already in tons. No calculation needed.

 

I want to add "tons" like "$" after or before the values.

 

For example : 1 000 tons, 1 000 $, 1 000 €...

 

I don't know where we can personalize the values in the dashboard.

 

Thanks & regards,

Add in your measure the Word "Tons"

 

Like this:

 

ValueTons = CALCULATE(SUM(Table2[Value]) & " Tons")

 

Replace the table and columns accord to your data.




Lima - Peru

This doesn't work for us. If we add the  & "Tons" - Part the chart is empty
