How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Make quick measures like in Power BI available in Excel as well

In Power BI we can easily create quick measures: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/quick-measures-preview/
This makes it so much easier for newbies or occasional users to adopt the new technologies, so please add in Excel as well.

        Yes, great suggestion. It would be great for promoting adoption of power pivot among non-IT folk, and would create an easier bridge to Power BI for them later on. And of course it would be really handy for those of us already writing DAX formulas. Massive kudos for developing what is already an amazing product. But why stop there? The hard work has kind of already been done (PBI). This would just be like Power Pivot getting a bit of a return for all it has given PBI
