Azure Analysis Services calculation groups are now generally available
Published date: 14 April, 2020
Declutter the user interface and improve the overall navigation experience for your users by using calculation groups for Azure Analysis Services (now generally available).
It’s not uncommon for Analysis Services models to have hundreds of base measures, which can overwhelm your users as they try to sift through them.
Calculation groups help to solve this by presenting your users a table with a single column (see example below). Each value in the column represents a reusable calculation that can be applied to any of the base measures. Your users simply select a calculation group in the field list to view the calculations in a Power BI visual. There’s no longer any need for the user or the data modeler to create separate measures.
