Calculation groups and implicit measures

Hi,

 

We recently introduced Calculation Groups into our model and made quite a bit of progress with it.

I just now found once you introduce Calculation groups you can't create implicit measures (column level aggregation) in PowerBI

 

I have two questions :

1) My model already had some implicit measures in table visuals, i can see they still have their respective aggregation applied but I cant change it anymore, my concern is - is there a risk that the current existing aggregations applied will automatically disappear in near future?

2) No other way I can create implicit measures?

 

Thanks

Hello @sahilmehta9 ,

 

it won't disappear in near future and i advice you to make it as an explicit measure, it won't take effort and it's easy when it comes to modification.

 

like if you need to modify it, it will take to do it once in the measure (explicit) and it will reflect on all the visuals using it, rather than fixing it in all visuals one by one.
