Bundling Measures Together

Philip Seamark shows how to bundle measures together in Power BI so they all appear at the top of the Fields section:

I’m going to share in this blog a technique I’ve found useful in Power BI for collecting measures together in once place AND placing them at the top of the field list.

The good news is, calculated measures do not have to exist on the table that stores the underlying data specific to that measure.  Measures can be placed on any table in the model and they will still work as expected.  This may not be immediately obvious but it’s handy to know.

So far, I’ve kept measures on their logical best-fit tables, but Philip’s hint looks quite useful once the set of measures grows, or if there are a number of cross-table measures.
