Sharing measures when connected to live datamodel

Hello, I have a Power BI report that is connected to a live datamodel. I have created many measures in the report. I have additional reports that need to use the same datamodel and the same measures. These additional reports have a different target audience and very different visuals. Ideally, I would like to build the additional reports from the dataset I created for the original report, reusing all the measures. But if I connect to the original report dataset, none of the measures are available in the new report. Is there a way to make the measures available?

Hi, @MDMC ;

If you connected to live datamodel ,it will create a report level measure, It will not be loaded into the data model, so none of the measures are available in the new report.such as:

and as GilbertQ said, if you want to load the measure into the data model and use it again, you could create the measure in the dataset itself instead of creating it in powerbi desktop. 

The following is the article about the creation method of SSAS multi-dimensional and tabular model can refer to:

Hi @MDMC 

 

What you will need to do, is to get your new measures added to the original dataset.

 

That is the only way for them to be available for everyone who consumes the original dataset.
