Hello @v-shex-msft, would you be able to follow-up on this topic?
I opened a MS ticket and the PBI team said they're aware of the issue. So far we have no ETA and most of all, no workaround.
I would have understood if that functionnality had never worked, but here you can't just simply remove a functionnality by mistake and do nothing about it or offer no workaround. Several users have been formatting fields for over a year now!
Displaying 3.00 instead of 300% is really confusing for the end-user. This is a fundamental piece for the user adoption of your self service BI.
I don't understand, what do you mean "by design"? Do you mean formatting is not supposed to work or it is supposed to work?
Just to be clear: it was working (at least some limited formating options such as Percent or "+#,##0.00%;-#,##0.00%"). I did not change anything (same calculations, same formatting, same cube, same everything). And suddendly I lost the formatting.
I'm not asking for a better support for SSAS MD formatting (altough I think it's a great idea and a mandatory feature).
I'm just asking the engineers to look at this feature that has been removed. I went over the issue with a Power BI engineer and he clearly noticed that the exact same measure was showing up correctly formatted before in Power BI Desktop + Power BI Online.
