how to recreate this tableau sums feature in Power BI?

My company is transitioning from tableau to Power BI - excited about the possibiities of the change, but am running into an issue I'm hoping someone has some experience with. In tableau, I can create a sum on a visual, like the circled area:

I can't seem to get that in Power BI - would it be a measure? Looking for some direction.

Hey,

 

I would create a measure for each of the ... like AV, Camp,

 

Then I would put these measure on a "Card Visual" and put it "behind" the chart, this should work, due to the transparent background of the bar chart visual.

 

You could also try the "Power KPI" or the "Sparkline" from OkViz custom visual from the office store, to add a little more information.

Thanks @TomMartens I'm going to give the card visual a try as that looks like the best option for this project.
