Display or inform the user the drill down levels in a matrix

Hi Community!

 

I got a request yesterday from a user who would like to see or at least know which levels a matrix have. They think it is difficult to remember or know how many levels they can drill down on in a matrix. 

 

Is there a nice way to display the drill down levels in a matrix or another workaround to this?

I have search around the web and have not found a solution yet.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

maybe you can describe the structure in a visual header tooltip.

Hi @mwegener ,

 

I took a look at the video you linked. It is not quite what I am looking for.

 

In our matrix we have the following levels: Country, Holding Names, Store Names and Style Category together with some KPI's. The user would then like to know that these levels are available in the matrix instead of remembering them by themselves. Also, so they know if they have to drill up or down to see the numbers they like.

 

Something like a dropdown like the ones in the matrix where you can choose between drilling down on rows or columns. 

 

If this possible to display somehow or at least in some other way? 🙂

hi  @Anonymous 

To my knowledge, it could not be achieved in power bi for now.

But as a workaround, you could use ISINSCOPE Function to create a measure and drag it into this matrix

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/isinscope-function-dax

https://xxlbi.com/blog/new-dax-function-isinscope/

For example:

Current Level = 
IF (
    ISINSCOPE ( 'Table'[Style Category] ),
    "Level 4",
    IF (
        ISINSCOPE ( 'Table'[Store Names] ),
        "Level 3",
        IF (
            ISINSCOPE ( 'Table'[Holding Names] ),
            "Level 2",
            IF ( ISINSCOPE ( 'Table'[Country] ), "Level 1" )
        )
    )
)

You could custom the text of this formula.

and here is sample pbix file, please try it.
