Count Distinct by Date

Hi,

 

I want to find the distinct count of customers who have visited a shop everyday. Is there a specific DAX or Mquery?

My plan is to create a column chart to find unique customers per day grouped monthly.  

 

Eg: "Sam" visits Wmart today thrice and tomorrow twice. I want him to be counted once today and again counted once tomorrow. Similarly for all customers and then add the values monthly.

 

Would appreciate if anyone could show me how to do it.

 

Regards,

Ruban

hi, @Anonymous @ryan_mayu

Eg: "Sam" visits Wmart today thrice and tomorrow twice. I want him to be counted once today and again counted once tomorrow. Similarly for all customers and then add the values monthly.

So times of Sam visits Shop these two days is 2, not just distinctcount result is 1.

You could try to use DISTINCTCOUNT and SUMX to create a measure like this

Measure 2 = var _table=SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[Shop],'Table'[Date],"distinctcount",DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[Customer]))
return
SUMX(_table,[distinctcount])

Result:

Hi, why distinctcount formula doesnot work in this situation? Have you tried about that? Or you have some specific requirement?
