Set a KPI Goal based on previous dates

I have several KPI Visuals in my report and the value is shown correctly, however I can not set the Goal right. My report is generated according to the dates selected, so if I have selected 2016-07-10 through 2016-07-15 I want the goal to be the same metric from the prevoius 5 days (2016-07-05 - 2016-07-10). For example if the metric value is 65% for 2016-07-10 - 2016-07-15 and 70% for 2016-07-05 - 2016-07-10 the goal would say 5%. I have created two measures for the dates and they are correct. I then created another measure to be the goal for the metric and the code is: 

 

Metric_Goal= CALCULATE([Metric], FILTER(Table, Table[Date]>=[StartDate]), FILTER(Table, Table[Date]<=[EndDate]))

 

Where StartDate=2016-07-05 and EndDate=2016-07-10, but it's not working because it's giving the same value (65% as the metric value and 65% as the goal).

 

Can someone help me fix this?

In this scenario, you should be able to use DATEADD and DATEDIFF functions to calculate the previous days' Metric according to the date selections. The formula below is for your reference.

Metric_Goal =
CALCULATE (
    [Metric],
    DATEADD ( Table[Date], - DATEDIFF ( [StartDate], [EndDate], DAY ), DAY )
)

Re: Set a KPI Goal based on previous dates

Thank you! However, I used DATESBETWEEN(StartDate, EndDate) because that's what I needed, but thanks for the idea it solved my problem. 🙂
