Formatting SSAS values (Live connection/explore live)

I want to see my date as Date and not as DateTime.

The data comes from a cube - SSAS. If I use excel, the date shows as it should. But when I get the data for a PBI report and I start connecting data from the desktop - using PCG, I will get the datetime and not the date.

It is not possible to format because I do not have the buttons to go back the system (like to do DAX) and stuff. Somebody there with the same kind of issue? Help Please. (Live connection)

Hi @TheMartha,

 

Currently, Cell level Formatting and translation features are not supported in this release of SSAS MD. These features will be enabled in upcoming releases of Power BI Desktop. Even you use FORMAT() function, it will still take the source format.

Have their been any updates to being able to format, model, and add measures/columns to live connections?  Any ETA on when this will be possible?  REALLY need this feature.

Thank you for the quick reply.  Hopefully they will make it happen soon.   It's pretty frustrating at the moment.

Is it still "Under Review". It's been a year and still there is no solution to the date issue using live SSAS connection.
