Calculate % of shifts filled by department by day



Sorry this is probably really easy but I'm trying to produce a table for management so they can see departments that are understaffed in advance. I have two tables and two lookups (Examples below).


  • Filled - Rows contain one assignement aka one person working in one unit for say 8 hours.
  • Unfilled - Rows contain shifts without someone assigned (generally due to sickness or annual leave)
  • LUs are just heirarchies


I thought the calculation 


(sum('Filled Duties'[Actual Work])/(sum('Filled Duties'[Actual Work])+sum('Unfilled Duties'[Work Time])))
would work but sadly not. Also being a measure it removes the ability to drill down into the data which I would like to keep.
What is the best way to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance

Re: Calculate % of shifts filled by department by day

Hi @scott3387 ,


Do the "Filled" and "Unfilled" tables have a relationship?

According to the sample data, the calculated result is just a percentage value.

You could show the expected result here.
