2-Day Custom Time Range for Visual



I am trying to include data in a bar graph that spans 2 days. Within this data, it is divided into 2 shifts. Let's call them 1 and 2. This data contains time stamps for each line item of data. I want to create a page for the 2nd shift which spans from 4pm to 2am. The issue I am running into, is including the previous days data. For example, if right now it's 1am, I want to include all data from 4:30pm from previous day until 1am right now. But, if it's 11pm, I only want to include 4pm-11pm in the graph. I have tried date filters, but seeing difficulty with data needed across 2 days. 


In my data, the time stamp can be whole hour or full date time stamp. I have a custom column for 1-24 (hours) and a full time stamp column. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated! 


Thank you!

Hi Amit, I had this exact formula and the issue I am having is it's adding the previous days same shift to my current day. So now, my visual for 'today' is not adding the previous days line items if it's after midnight. If that doesn't make sense, let me know and I can make an example file in Power BI. 


Thank you!

@Spencer_J , In such case I prefer to move date example


if(timevalue([DateTime])<time(4,0,0) , datevalue([Datetime]) -1, datevalue([Datetime]) )


this will force same date for any time before 4 AM as 2PM - Shift start date

Here's another example. Let's just say we want a visual to total the amount for this shift. Currently summing the amount but it's summing from the same shift but the day before.
