This is a real shame. Parameter mappings are great for the interactive experience and I've used them to vastly improve a Pareto cumulative calculation on a visual from over 60 seconds to less than 10. Why can't some parameter mapped columns be used on axes and not others? Why don't some parameter mapped columns support cross-filtering?
At the moment, it looks like this only affects a date table, because I've created two parameter maps from elsewhere in the data model and they work without any issues.
