A new model explorer, with the ability to create calculation groups
Part one of a three-part series of blogs
It's in preview at the moment, but it's worth knowing that a new model explorer is coming to Power BI proper soon. This is a good thing, but the calculation groups which will also now be available are not for the faint-hearted!
This blog shows how you can see the contents of your semantic model, and how to create and use calculation groups.
At this point you may be asking yourself two questions: what's a semantic model, and why do I want to see it? A fair summary is that Microsoft are exposing more of the complexity of what goes on inside a Power BI report to you, the user. For most people I suspect this won't be that useful, but for geeks - like you? - it definitely will be.
To use the features described in this blog, you'll need to enable them in Power BI Desktop preview first:
Tick ths box to enable both the new model explorer and calculation group authoring.
You should then go to Model view:
Click on this icon to go to Model view.
You can then use the new symantic model view - and create calculation groups - as described in the rest of this blog.
