Allowing Users To Choose Which Columns In A Table

Hi all,


I have a table that has about 10 different columns of data. I would love for the end-user to be able to choose which of those columns actually appear in the table. For example, if they only want to choose three, they could use a checkbox slicer and the data table would "hide" the other columns.


I've been able to accomplish something similar with a graph and measures but the table and column specific example is giving me trouble.


Any push in the right direction would be awesome!






No, it's not possible. And it's necessary to have this kind of feature. If the end user can also select whatever columns into a Table, there's no differece from the creator of this report. If you make your end users to do this, you can just upload the .pbix file into a shared path and let them edit it.

As far as I know this ain't possible currently sadly, there is 1 work around I know of, but it's a really disgusting one so I won't even suggest it.
