Dynamic development Measure


I got a Power BI report and I am trying to automate them. 
It contains some measures which calculates the development of the last 2 years. 

One of the Measure written like shown. 


ManthaOrderNumberDevelopment =
    ERROR("Quickmeasures mit Zeitintelligenz können nur über die von Power BI bereitgestellte Datumshierarchie oder die primäre Datumsspalte gruppiert oder gefiltert werden."),
            DISTINCTCOUNT('Bericht 1'[Manta Order Number]),
            DATEADD('Date'[Date].[Date], -1, YEAR)
            DISTINCTCOUNT('Bericht 1'[Manta Order Number]) - __PREV_YEAR,

Inserted this measure into a card allows me to filter it manually for each year.
I inserted a column called "Last year" in the same table which changes every next year and includes always the numbers of the last year. 
Last Year Filter = If(year(DataLabelings[Date a Year Ago]) = 'Date'[Year],'Date'[Date].[Date])

I tried to use this column as a filter for my card. So every year the development card will change. 
But when I am trying to use this as a filter my card won't filter.
Only when I am using the normal date column it will work.
And then it is only possible to change the filter manually.

I hope you get my problem, because my english isnt the best and describing the problem is really hard, without showing the report.

@Nanaki , if you want to display last year of selected value

a measure

last year =

year(maxx(allselected('Date'),'Date'[Date]) ) -1


also do not use .date . Please mark your date table as date table

Why Time Intelligence Fails - Powerbi 5 Savior Steps for TI :
To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.

I started with step one and marked my table as a date table. 
I will continue with the other steps later, but by marking it I lost my hierarchy and now I cant even filter it with my old filter for the seperate year.
