See Records - solution for hiding data

I am using a column with sensitive data to count distinct sales.

i discoverd that users can click on a bar chart and "See Records"

questions:

 

1. Is it possible to disable the "See Records" feature?

2. If its not possible to disable the "See Records", i would like to create a new column

Hi @Yakov,

 

Based on limitation of document, you can write a measure with current summary mode to instead the data column, then drag measure to value fields and hide the data column.

After these steps, you will find it can only use 'see data' feature and can't access to original data.

 

Limitations

There are a few limitations to consider when using See Data or See Records:
Only the following visual types are supported:

•Bar
•Column
•Map
•Tree Map
•Filled Map
•Pie
•Donut
•Funnel

•You can't use See Records when your visual uses a calculated measure
•You can't use See Records when connected to a live multidimensional (MD) model.
