Conditional formatting in tables

Hello!

Can I configure conditional formatting so that the criterion is the previous value of the parameter? For example, in the report on positions in the search engine, I need to show whether the position has improved, deteriorated or remained unchanged.

On the screen I showed how it should look about.image.png

Thanks!

Hi @ermak 

 

You can create a measure like below and use it for conditional formating in your matrix

_arrows = 
VAR _previous = CALCULATE( SUM( 'Table'[Value] ), PREVIOUSDAY( 'Table'[Date] ) )
VAR _current = SUM( 'Table'[Value] )
RETURN SWITCH( 
    TRUE(),
    _previous = BLANK(), BLANK(),
    _previous < _current, 1,
    _previous = _current, 2,
    _previous > _current, 3
)

I've attached a file with the solution as well.

Re: Conditional formatting in tables

The first thing that comes to my mind is to write a calculated column to indicate the previous status and then use that column to drive the conditional formatting using a logical less-than, greater-than, or equal-to.

Re: Conditional formatting in tables

Hello, @Mariusz !

Thank you very much, but it only works if the dates are in order, for example 01.02.2020, 02.02.2020, 03.02.2020, etc. But it doesn't work if the dates are spaced, for example, 01.02.2020, 13.02.2020, 28.02.2020.

 

Is there any way to fix this?
