Real-time dashboard data manipulation

Hello,

I am looking to impliment a dashboard for a weigh scale using Power Bi. My goal is to display the real time data recieved from the scale (I am already successful in doing this) and provide a button on the dashboard that could 'tare' the value displayed. I am thinking that I will need to manipulate the real time data using the value that is set when the button is pushed (eg. real time data - tare value = displayed value). I'm very new to Power Bi so I am not sure if this is something I can accomplish with Power Bi or maybe a thrid party app then send the data to Power Bi or if I need to look for another dashboard. Any help pointing me in the right direction is appreciated.

HI @Josiah13,

AFAIK, current power bi does not include any writeback features. So If you want to write data back to your data source, you may need to use other products(e.g. use PowerApps to design a canvas app) to send the requests.

Then you can integrate the canvas app to power bi side to achieve submit data effects.
