Controlling the fields when showing data point as table

Hi, my  issue is around controlling the data that you drill into when you have tables/graphs/charts showing summary statistics.  


I have a query that has brought in a number of pieces of data about some customers


I have made some tables and charts based on certain fields. EG I’ve done a graph showing the age categories of the customers like below




What I want to be able to do in Power BI is to be able to drill into the data via the datapoints- by right clicking on the data and selecting show data point as table (like below screenshot)





And then I want to be able to control which fields will appear in the below table when you show data point as table (at present it will show every field from my source query) and I want to be able to control this depending on the visual eg only have a few  key fields showing.




Presently, if I amend the table in the visualisations tab while I’m viewing the datapoint table it will revert back to default and show everything once I leave the data point table and go back to the report and click on the datapoint again.  


Is it possible to control what fields are  in the datapoint table and save it so that is what shows when a user clicks into it that particular datapoint?
