Using Parameters for Efficiency

Hello PBI community!

 

My PBI model has gotten pretty large in the past few years and writing/editing measures now takes a bit of time. I'm thinking of using a date parameter, applying it as a filter in Power Query for each of my Fact tables to limit the amount of data when building/editing the model. So instead of working with 5 years of data when writing measures to my model, I can apply a parameter as a filter and only have PBI work with 2 months worth of data. Then, before publishing the data, I can open the parameter back up to the 5 years.

 

Will this actually work in increasing the speed and efficiency in creating and editing measures?

@seanguerrero , Yes that is way it should work.

Also, if you are PPU or premium customer, you can use deployment pipeline

Will this parameter idea work if all of my files are excel and on my computer?
