A blog about DAX, Power Query and Power BI

External Tool, Power BI Sidekick

Mini Tool – Implicit measures

It is considered best practice by many to use explicit DAX measures instead of implicit measures. As a developer, I would like to know if the no-implicit-measure principle is being violated. This is where the mini tool Implicit measures comes into place.


These insights can also be retrieved from the page analyzer, but this is the place to go for a complete overview of implicit measure usage throughout all report pages in one spot.


I automatically assume that all readers here are experienced and skilled Power BI developers and this never happens in your own reports ;-), so it’s especially useful in scenario’s where you have to review or enhance reports built by others!


That is basically all there is to it.

Mini Tool – Bookmarks

A quick demonstration of the insights gained by this Bookmark analyzer. The mini tool Bookmarks provides a quick overview of the bookmarks in the report(s): where they are used, whether they are corrupt and – in case of selected visuals – which visuals are included in the selection.

Fell in love with DAX and M at the same time. Hard to make a choice between them.

Fortunately, I am happy to see the best model requires M and DAX working closely together. 

It’s the perfect team!
