Documenting Power BI Dataset Measures

Gilbert Quevauvilliers thinks about documentation:

One thing that often happens is when users are using a dataset, they want to know which measures are available. And not only that sometimes they want to know the measure definition.

This got me thinking and how best could I give this to the users in my organization to be able to find this information quickly and easily.

In the past this was a manual effort not only to export the measures, but also to maintain a document, so that as measures are added, updated, or deleted I would then need to manually update some document.

Yep, you guessed it I created a Power BI report which has got all the measures and their measure definitions, which will update with the dataset! And I show you how I did this below.
