Conditional formatting for a specific period only

Hi all, I am using conditional formatting as a background colour in each month of the year depending on the value of the field. The problem is that from 2021 I need to change the conditions, i.e., same number could have a different color in 2021, however, I would like to keep the previous colors before 2021, does anybody know if this is feasible?

Hi, @CMSINFO 

What is the name of the chart you are using?

According to your requirement, I think it can be achieved. You can write a measure that uses the IF() function to judge if the date is later than 2021, then used the Switch() function to return color based on value.

You can write a measure like this:

Color=
IF(Year(Max([Date]))=2021,
  Switch(True(),
        [Value]=0,”Green”,
        [Value]>=1&&[Value]<3,”Orange”,
        [Value]>=3,”Red”),
    Switch(True(),
        [Value]=0,”Green”,
        [Value]>=1&&[Value]<5,”Orange”,
        [Value]>=5,”Red”))

Then you can set the conditional format of this chart like this:

Then you can get what you want.

 

If you still have a problem, you can post your sample test pbix file(without sensitive data) and your expected result so that we can help you in advance.
