Categorize employees

Hi,

 

I have a table with a lot of consultants, but I want to create a new column (created with DAX) where I categorize them based on how long they have been employed. So if the consultant has been employed for 1 month, then he is "Insertion 1m" and 2-3 months, he is "Insertion 2-3m".
I think IF statement is the solution, but I am not sure. Can anyone help?

HI @seryil 

You can try switch, like below.

Column = 
VAR _months = DATEDIFF( 'YourTable'[Started ], TODAY(), MONTH )
RETURN 
SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
    _months = 0, "new starter",
    _months = 1, "1 month",
    _months IN { 2, 3 }, "2 to 3 months",
    "Over 3 months"
)

Re: Categorize employees

Hey @Mariusz 

 

That worked perfectly. But I have another problem.  I want the choice options you wrote, but I also want some new options in my column which are determined by another column (not based on date). So in that same switch statement, I want to refer to another column 🙂 

 

Thanks
