Yes this is crazy. I want to be able to show totals for the columns I choose, not all columns.
I only want to show a total for my $ amounts, the other 'totals' are nonsensical. The same behaviour as the Table visual would be good. And While I'm making suggestions, I'd really like to be able to edit those column headings - what is there is just silly!
please see my post on page 3 (4/20/17); it explains the design. To reduce your totals - reduce your rows by modeling/merging row data. for now that is the only method to manage this. perhaps in the future there will be an explicit on/off for individual row totals but that is not there now.
My apologies @CahabaData, I misread your post. My problem is different to yours and to this thread - I wan't to limit totals on individual columns of a matrix not rows. I should start a new thread on that.
@RitaPT see my 2nd post here http://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/URLs-in-Matrix-are-clickable-links-when-as-Rows-but-not-as/t... to see my work-around to remove specific columns from showing a total.
good input; to summarize your post in other thread:
a work-around for suppressing Totals of those columns which you don't want: In the formatting area > Column formatting
Select your text column, change the Font color to match your background colour, turn Color values Off, Color subtotals and Color totals On. Repeat for all your text columns.
