Changing and Saving Fields in a Data Point Table

Hi Everyone,


I have built a visual (a simple bar chart). I have noticed that the data point table is handy, especially because the bar chart is counting leads over days of the week. When the data point table is displayed, the dashboard user can see all sorts of information about those leads. 


I am wondering how Microsoft Power BI chooses which fields it will display in the data point table and which fields it will leave out. Is there a way to select the fields you would like to see and the fields you would like to leave out? I know that there's a value box for the data point table, but when I add or remove fields in that value box, then exit the report, they are no longer there when I come back to the report.

Sure thing! here are step-by-step screenshots (they have brief notes in them). Steps 4 and 7 show the problem. The problem is when I am in the data point table and attempt to move, add, or delete any of the fields (step 4), then exit the data point table and come back the changes I made to the fields have not saved (step 7).
