Hi guys,

I know this should be easy, but I need help.

I have a list of professionals who have different number of works, every work has a "Score" depending on their performance; also, they have works on different "domains" which are the place where they do the job and "Roles" which are the type of jobs. I need to know IN MEASURE the number of professional who have LOW SCORE IN AVERAGE and add the filter by domain in the same measure. I did it with a table and applied the filters. This is the result:

As you can see, **the total of professional with low score are 4** (by distinct count). That is the number I need in measure

Solved! Go to Solution.

Give this a shot

low score pros = CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'public tuten_booking'[tuten_user_professional] ), 'public tuten_booking'[domain] <> "easy", 'public tuten_booking'[domain] <> "sodimac", FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'public tuten_booking'[tuten_user_professional] ), [average] <= 3.8 ) )

Hi omarevp

First lets create your distinct count measure

Professionals = DISTINCTCOUNT(TableName[tuten_user_professional])

If the "average" column is just a column based on the filtering in your screenshot you could get away with a basic calculate I think

Low scoring pros = CALCULATE([Professionals],FILTER(TableName,TableName[average] <= 3.8))

Thats a start at least... let me know how it goes.

Cheers

Greg

@dearwatsonthanks for your answer.

Nope, "average is not a column, it is a measure I made from "score" column.

I tried to do it like this:

First I created a measure called "average" which is average = AVERAGE(table1[score])

then:

low score pros = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(tuten_user_professionals),table1[domain]<>"easy",table1[domain]<>"sodimac", **[average]<=3,8**) didnt work using the "average" measure because it says: a function CALCULATE has been used in a True/False expression that is used as a table filter expression. This is not allowed.

then i tried with AVERAGE as a function inside the new measure:

low score pros = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(tuten_user_professionals),table1[domain]<>"easy",table1[domain]<>"sodimac", AVERAGE(table1[score]<=3,8) didnt work too using the function calling the column "score" because it says: a function AVERAGE has been used in a True/False expression that is used as a table filter expression. This is not allowed.

What I need is to add the condition that is has to be: show me the total of professionals that are from "xx" domain, which their average score is <= 3,8, not the score from a specific work, the average score from all their scored works.

should be like this:

If I take the original data with their score per work:

Then, I can set the "average" option for "score" field or i can replace it for the "average" measure and apply the filter average<=3,8 and it goes like this: (it reduces the number of rows, obviously)

So far so good, but, I need to know the number of professionals **in measure. **And which are those professionals?:

annelk37@gmail.com

irenemarisol1@gmail.com

jorgeleonardo2906@hotmail.com

parra.electrico2702@gmail.com

TOTAL OF PROFESSIONAL WITH LOW SCORE FROM XXXX DOMAIN: **4 **(applying distinctcount)

I hope I could explain myself.

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi,

Try this

=CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(tuten_user_professionals[__ column__]),FILTER(Table1,(table1[domain]<>"easy"||table1[domain]<>"sodimac")&&[average]<=3.8))

The DISTINCTCOUNT() requires a column reference. So in the highlighted portion of the formula, specify the column in which you want to do the distinct count.

@Ashish_Mathurthanks.

Sorry, but i didnt write the complete formula.

I already tried with

name of the table: public tuten_booking

**low score pros = CALCULATE(COUNT('public tuten_booking'[tuten_user_professional]),'public tuten_booking'[domain]<>"easy",'public tuten_booking'[domain]<>"sodimac",[average]<=3,8)**

It appears this message __"a function 'CALCULATE' has been used in a True/False expression that is used as a table filter expression. This is not allowed"__

I need a formula like this:

*Calculate the total of professional (distinctcount) whos domain<>"easy" or "sodimac" AND the AVERAGE of ALL of their works is <= 3,8*

In the table I added before, there are 4 professional, I need a measure that show me **only that number.**

Thanks!

Hi,

Try this

=CALCULATE(COUNT('public tuten_booking'[tuten_user_professional]),FILTER('public tuten_booking','public tuten_booking'[domain]<>"easy"&&'public tuten_booking'[domain]<>"sodimac"&&[average]<=3,8))

Does this work?
