How do I know when a relationship is one to many or many to many in the Power BI Designer?

Is there an easy way to know on the Manage Relationships dialog box if the detected or existing relationships are one to many, many to many etc?

Go in Manage Relationships, Edit Relationship, Advanced Options, and see "Cross Filter Direction. You do not have "many-to-many", but you enable cross filter in both directions.

It’s also worth noting that by default, Cardinality is set to Many-to-One and the Cross Filter Direction is set to Both which actually has caused some issues with some users who don’t understand the difference between “Single” and “Both”.

 

I am wondering if “Single” would have been a better choice.

Yeah, it would be nice to be able to set the default.
