Managing used/unused dataset columns in thin reports



We use shared datasets with multiple thin reports connected to them. Over time, the needs change and the dataset is modified to accommodate those needs, so the dataset grows and grows. We use a variety of tools to try to manage the size and optimise the performance, however, one of the things we're restricted in is removing unused columns as we have no easy visibilty of which columns, measures etc are used in visuals and filters in the thin reports that are connected to it. We can only see what is used in the dataset pbix file.


Is anyone aware of a tool that can show you all of the columns and measures in a dataset as well as where they are used within thin reports that are published to Service?


Thanks for your help!!
