Dynamic calculation of tenure based on selected month slicer


I have a data that looks like this. A person has multiple rows of data. Each event (such as promotion, hire, termination, rehire) equates to one row of data. I need to get each of their tenure and then add group/bin them accordingly.


If the current status is active then Newest Employment Date - Maximum Date based on selected slicer in the report. (if the slicer selected is Mar 2022, the max date is Mar 31 2022). Thus, Newest employment date - mar 31 2022. The max date adjusts based on the selected slicer. 


If the current status is terminated then newest employment date - termination date.
If the selected slicer is less than the termination date then use that lesser date (because technically, it makes sense that way)

Then I should group them by 0-6 Months, 1-5 years, 6-10 years and so on and by their teams as well. Result should be a table that looks like this:

 0-6 Months1-5 Years6-10 years

Hi @Honne2021 ,

For now, the advice I can provide is to create a separate calendar table to provide filtered dates for the slicer.

The raw data provided seems a matrix visual in Power BI, right?

What does your data look like in data view in Power BI Desktop?

Please explain again how the expected results of IT and HR in the [0-6 Months] column came from, and if so, it is best to explain it based on the raw data from data view.




Best Regards,

Hi @v-stephen-msft ,

Sorry I think I wasnt clear on that. Here is a screenshot of an excel file I created to explain it clearly:


 I already have a date table. 🙂
