Converted workitems in Azure DevOps

for anyone who is familiar with VSTS and powerbi will hopefully understand the below


with every major update to a work item in VSTS, Powerbi will duplicate the rows for each individual update to provide a instance of the details

this is an example of the the same workitem ID but has multiple rows of data.



my current needs are as such

1. count per month the created count of items that come in as a workitem type (Support). this would be achieved easily in a graph of count per month based on created date column in screenshot

2. of those counts in point 1, how many were converted to a workitem type (Defect). i can obtain a list of these items but cannot get a count. essentially the list is based on "First Workitem Type" is 'Defect' and "Last Workitem Type" is 'Support'. Is there a way to achieve a count per month? i cannot seem to work out the correct measure/formula to do so

3. how many of those items in point 3 have not been rejected once they have been triaged. this would be based on the field/column "State"


i would assume i need multiple measures, but i am not sure hwhere to start


my output table would need to be something like this  (IF POSSIBLE)

 QTRMONTH/YEARCreated Support CasesHow many were converted to Defects?How many of those Defects have been passed as Defects?How many have not been assessed?


any help would be appreciated
