Grouping a Measure (that is a date)

Hi,

I created a Measure that interacts with the slicer (SELECTEDVALUE) and returns the smallest date of the filter context for each entry.
Output is a ticket list with the time of the first activity of a special group of operators.

Now I want to show the tickets in a bar chart by months based on the measure that returns the smallest date.

I can't use the Measure as the axis of my chart and I can't create a relation based on the measure.

Re: Grouping a Measure (that is a date)

HI @coachVE ,

Measure result will be affected by filter and slicer selection, but its calculation require other category fields. (without categories, measure will summary all records as one) So you can't use measure itself as category/group field to expand or summary other fields.

BTW, current power bi not support to create dynamic calculate column/table based on slicer/filters.
