Sum of available people in a certain month

Hello,

 

I'm trying to create a measure that will show how many people are "available" in the current month.

 

As an example, here's a data from 2 (!) people: Jessia (who can fullfill 2 roles) and Sandy:

 

NameRoleAvailable from month
JessicaAccountant10
JessicaFinancial Controller10
SandyFinancial Controller11

 

As result I need to see that we have 1 person available in October, but 2 people available in November (since Jessica has become available previously, and is still available).

 

Somehow adding SUM and DISTINCTCOUNT doesn't work... and then there are the months... suggestions?

@Olia Please try using below expression as "New Column"

 

TotalAvailable = 
VAR CurrMonth = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(RoleAvailable[Name]),FILTER(ALL(RoleAvailable),RoleAvailable[Month]=EARLIER(RoleAvailable[Month])))
VAR PrevMonth = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(RoleAvailable[Name]),FILTER(ALL(RoleAvailable),RoleAvailable[Month]=EARLIER(RoleAvailable[Month])-1))
RETURN CurrMonth + PrevMonth
