Counting consecutive status by data and employee and status

Hello all.


I have a dataset from a daily survey on attendance.  Some of the fields are date, name of the employee, and status, and they can be entered in any order.  The status is a Yes/No toggle on PowerApps (aka True/False in PowerBI), letting us know if an employee has been routed to another assignment.  An employee may be "pulled"/re-assigned as needed.


Output: We are trying to see if we can count the number of days an employee was pulled consecutively.  The counter/flag would start counting each day until the "pulled" status drops off.  The counter restarts again with more than 1 consecutive re-assignment.


All three fields are normalized in one SharePoint list.  The size is up to 975 entries a day.


I tried writing a code, but it seems not doable on PowerBI as a running report.

Hi @swong89 ,


Try the formula like below:

Column =
    FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Employee] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Employee] ) ),

Sorry.  I just got back to this project.   I tried your formula, but it does not seem to filter the "Pulled" column filter.  The Pulled column has values of "0" and "1", with "1" as being true.  How do I include the "1" into the rankx formula?

Hi @v-henryk-mstf .


I've included some data below based on the data we have collected so far.  The data is already filtered for the Pulled indicator (Column 5).  Every time the employee has a pulled indicator =1 means they were re-assigned.   Whenever that is triggered, I want to start counting the number of times an employee is consecutively by date with the 1 (last column).  The counter would restart when that condition no longer exists.

Hi @swong89 ,


Based on your description, I don't seem to understand much about the needs you describe in this paragraph.



Could you provide the relevant test data and screenshots of the expected results so that I can further answer for you? Also you can ask for help in the powapp community or have a better solution. 

Looking forward to your feedback.

Best Regards,
