Calculating dates

Hi

 

We run programmes that fall in line with a different yearly cycle than the calendar months. Our calendar starts on 01/08 every year and ends 31/07 every year.

 

If someone starts their programme on 01/01/2019 they are in their second year of study as of todays date. If they start 01/09/2017 they are in their 3rd year of study as of todays date.

 

The calculations i am using are 

Prog year check = DATEDIFF(Learners[Episode Start],TODAY(),DAY)/365
 
and then 
Programme Year= ROUNDUP(Learners[Prog year check],0)
 
However this is not taking into account our year starts on 01/08 so currently if someone started 01/01/2019 they are showing as being in their fist year rather than their second year.
 
Is there a way to calculate this?
 
thanks

Re: Calculating dates

One quick way I can think of is you use the start of year function

End of the year would be ideal, but will not work directly on today

 

DATEDIFF(STARTOFYEAR(Admission[Date],"7/31"),TODAY(),MONTH)

 

Now you will get more than 12 month , develop login based on month or year
