How to edit a measure in PBI Web?

We have dashboards published into an O365 shared workspace and need to be able to edit the measures. 

 

Where is the formula bar?

 

It seems crazy that one cannot view existing measures or create new ones.

 

This means that the Master Version remains on the PBIX desktop and changes effected on PBI Web will be overwritten when new measures are added.

 

Are we missing something here please?

Hello, @DataGuy2016 You Cannot create new/edit measures into Power Bi Service. You can only create/edit using PBI Desktop.

 

I recommend you to read this article https://docs.microsoft.com/pt-br/power-bi/desktop-tutorial-create-measures#create-and-use-your-own-m... i believe that will help you to understand about measures.

 

Let me know if it help you! 

 

Best Regard,

Hi @DataGuy2016,

 

1. The dataset in the Service will be overwritten but nothing would lose because no changes can be made in the Service. 

2. The changes to the default report in the Service could be lost. If you want to customize the report in the Service, I would suggest you make a copy of it by "Save as". This is reasonable. Because we still want to publish the new report we create in Desktop.

Hi,

 

I understand modifying the measures locally in powerbi desktop, but after republishing... im losing the utilization report.

How can that be avoided?

 

thanks a lot!
