I am trying to create a summary table and could use some help! I am trying to calculate the amount of time an employee is in a particular pay plan (salary). For a data source, I am using a change log from an employee database. For privacy purposes, I have modified the data to cleanse it. However, below are some examples of what I am working with and what I am trying to accomplish.
In this scenario, the employee has one record for each promotion, or move into the next pay plan. The outcome I am trying to get in this scenario is as follows:
I am wanting the duration column to represent the number of days the employee was in that pay plan. It's calculated by looking at the difference from that record until the next record, with the exception of the most recent record, which uses today's date for the calculation (since the employee is still in that pay plan).
In this scenario, the employee's play plan does not consistently increase. They took another job which had a lesser pay, and then eventually worked their way back up. In this scenario, I am looking for the same output as in scenario one. Below is the expected outcome:
I tried creating a table using SUMMARIZE(), grouping by EmployeeID and again by PayPlanID, however I wasn't sure what expressions I could use to calculate the duration in days. It would be much easier if I had a start & end date in the record, but I do not. Only the date the change was submitted.
I would really appreciate any help or guidance on this!
