Changing Measure Values to Months/Days

Hi,

 

I have created a measure which calculates the number of days to achieve a certain target. However, since the # days are coming out to be 100+ for a lot of cases, I would also like to give the user an option to show the measure in # months if desired. So basically a click functionality where the user can chose to see the measure in months or days. This would have been simple in Tableau using parameters but I am not sure if Power BI parameters can be used the same way.

 

Thanks in advance,

Chirag

Hi Chirag,

 

The DATEDIFF DAX function should help with what you're trying to achieve.

 

You could create different measures using this function for Days, Weeks, Months difference etc and then have a slicer to allow the user to select one of these measures.

 

Hope that helps

Alex

Re: Changing Measure Values to Months/Days

Thanks for your response Alex! I wasn't sure how DATEDIFF could fix this but I did create two measures - one for date and month each and used slicer to change the view between these two measures. This does help me achieve the view I wanted.

 

Thanks Again!
