Add Text Box to Power Bi Table Report

Hi

Is there any way that i can let users Free Type text into a cell held within a Power BI report?

In my example below, i would like to enable users to be able to type in a Comment beside the various jobs numbers in the Yellow Hightighted space below.

For example - to explain why Total Costs are > than Budget on Job no. C06124?

Is this possible? Are there any reports that users can type into?

Hello @Sean-OReilly ,

I think you're looking for a Power Apps form. See the following link that shows how to create them in Power BI:
