Calculating Avg # Activities Per Day/Week/Month

I am trying to calculate the average number of activities per day / week / month. Current data has an activities column [actv_id]. The below syntax worked fine for calculating the average per day.

Avg # of Activities Per Day =
AVERAGEX(
CALCULATETABLE('Customer Support Activity - CSR', 'Customer Support Activity - CSR'[ToDate] <> BLANK() ),
VAR St = 'Customer Support Activity - CSR'[fr_date]
VAR En = 'Customer Support Activity - CSR'[ToDate]
RETURN
COUNTROWS(
CALCULATETABLE(
'Calendar',
'Calendar'[Date] >= St,
'Calendar'[Date] <= En
)
)
)

There are calculated columns for:

- ToDate = TODAY()

- Week = WEEKNUM('Customer Support Activity  - CSR'[fr_date])

- Month = FORMAT('Customer Support Activity  - CSR'[fr_date], "MMM yyyy")

Problem: I assumed that if I changed "VAR En" = [Week], it would work for week (same as if I was to change it month) but that did not work.

Goal: I am trying to create a measure where I can calculate Avg # of Activities per Week + per Month.

Any assistance on how I can make this work is greatly appreciated!

Thank you Datanauts!

Hi @Anonymous,

Can you share a sample file, please? You can try a formula like below.

```Measure =
AVERAGEX (
SUMMARIZE (
FactSales,
DimDate[CalendarWeek],
"#activities", COUNTROWS ( FactSales )
),
[#activities]
)
+ AVERAGEX (
SUMMARIZE (
FactSales,
DimDate[CalendarMonth],
"#activities", COUNTROWS ( FactSales )
),
[#activities]
)
```

Re: Calculating Avg # Activities Per Day/Week/Month

@v-jiascu-msft Thank you so much for your response. I am trying workup the syntax that you have provided. For reference, please see my active workbook. I am curious to know your thoughts on how to achieve the anticipated goal of calculating the average # of activities per week + average # of activities per month.

Below is the link to my active workbook.

I appreciate you and gratitude!

Re: Calculating Avg # Activities Per Day/Week/Month

Hi @Anonymous,

I'm not 100 percent sure what the result should be. If it's the average value monthly, you just need one measure. If it's a value of the average of the values of months, there could be three measures.

1. Create a new column due to the old relationship doesn't match any values.

`DateForRelationship = [fr_date].[Date]  //delete the relationship first.`

2. Create three measures, including one renewed measure.

```Avg # of Activities Per Day New =
AVERAGEX (
'Customer Support Activity  - CSR',
DATEDIFF ( [fr_date], TODAY (), DAY )
)
```
```Avg # of Activities Per Week New =
AVERAGEX (
SUMMARIZE (
'Customer Support Activity  - CSR',
'Calendar'[Week],
"WeeklyTotal", CALCULATE (
SUMX (
'Customer Support Activity  - CSR',
DATEDIFF ( [fr_date], TODAY (), DAY )
)
)
),
[WeeklyTotal]
)
```
```Avg # of Activities Per Month =
AVERAGEX (
SUMMARIZE (
'Customer Support Activity  - CSR',
'Calendar'[Month],
"MonthlyTotal", CALCULATE (
SUMX (
'Customer Support Activity  - CSR',
DATEDIFF ( [fr_date], TODAY (), DAY )
)
)
),
[MonthlyTotal]
)
```
