How to Allow a User to easily Filter for Any Project between two dates

I've got a report with a lot of projects on it. Each is a line item and has a start/end date. 

 

I want a user to be able to visually change a table so that they select the dates they are looking for and see what projects are going on, and/or ending, and/or starting within that date range. 

 

I think my picture explains it better....2021-04-19_10-02-33.png

Hi, @DataUser 

Please check the below picture and the sample pbix file's link down below, whether it is what you are looking for.

the measure is in the sample pbix file.

At this moment, I did not create any relationship between two tables, but if you need it later, you can create an inactive relationship and use USERELATIONSHIP DAX function in a measure.

Thanks - Taking it a step further, is there a way to make another measure that states the status? Ie: On-Going, Starting, or Ending and applies it to each project within the date range?

Hi, @DataUser 

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Please try the below measure.

I am not quite sure whether I defined the meaning of Ending / Ongoing / Starting correctly or not.

Please insert the below measure into your visualization and you can try to fix the wordings if I defined those in the other way round.

 

Status flag =
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
SELECTEDVALUE ( Projects[Project Start] ) <= MIN ( dates[Date] )
&& SELECTEDVALUE ( Projects[Project End] ) >= MIN ( dates[Date] ), "Ending",
SELECTEDVALUE ( Projects[Project Start] ) >= MIN ( dates[Date] )
&& SELECTEDVALUE ( Projects[Project End] ) <= MAX ( dates[Date] ), "Ongoing",
SELECTEDVALUE ( Projects[Project Start] ) <= MAX ( dates[Date] )
&& SELECTEDVALUE ( Projects[Project End] ) >= MAX ( dates[Date] ), "Starting"
)

Lastly - Is there anyway to count the number of times this measure is true? For example, in your example , it would show up as 4? I was trying to use a datacard to do this, but I can't figure out how to count what the measure has returned and I don't want to create another table.

Hi, @DataUser 

Pleaes check the below picture and the sample pbix file's link down below.

The measure for counting active project is like below.

 

Project Active Count =
CALCULATE (
COUNTROWS(Projects),
FILTER (
Projects,
Projects[Project Start] <= MAX ( dates[Date] )
&& Projects[Project End] >= MIN ( dates[Date] )
)
)

@DataUser , You need to join both start and end date to the same date table. One join will be inactive which you can activate using userelationship
