Using shared datasets as a source

That's a quick question can measures and calculated columns be created when using shared dataset as a source?

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi @mmgnln ,

 

as far as I know, you can create measures on Live Connections, but no calculated columns.

The measures are saved as part of the report.

@mmgnln - Not currently to the best of my knowledge. I am assuming here that you are referring to a "live" Power BI dataset connection.

Thanks Greg!

I've tried it myself and it does allow me to create measures but I was wondering if that's because I was the dataset author 🤔

@mmgnln - Sorry, I was incorrect in stating that measures cannot be created. Calculated columns cannot be created.
