View various metrics with a Toggle on Pivot Charts? Other than bookmarks.

Hello wonderful forum users!

 

Next on my task list is to create a report with a toggle to view metrics by a different unit.  For example, imagine you have a pivot table with Resources being the rows and Week Numbers being the columns.  I may want the values in the center to be billed hours, non-billed hours, total hours, or billed dollars.  I'd be ok if the toggle was limited to just two (off/on) though.

 

In researching this it seems one method is to use bookmarks where I essentially have to make multiple copies of the table overlapping each other.  However, is that really the only option available?  It seems a bit overly complex for such a straight forward requirement.

Re: View various metrics with a Toggle on Pivot Charts? Other than bookmarks.

Hi @bflury ,

To view metrics by a different unit, maybe you can create a new table including the unit, for example, thousand, million...and put this column in a silcer, create a measure like this:

Measure = 
var uint = SELECTEDVALUE(test[Unit])
return
IF(
    uint = "K",
    DIVIDE(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Value]),1000) & "K",
    IF(
        uint = "M",
        DIVIDE(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Value]),1000000) & "M"
    )
)

This is just a sample, you can refer it depending on your specific situations.

@v-yingjl this is genius!!!  A little "hacky", and honestly way more effort than it should be, but still I like the creativity of it!
