Summarizing a column from another table while using a slicer

Hi! I have two tables with the following, in a one-to-many relationship:

 

Data

IDValue
AB$1
XY$2
CZ$3

 

Activities

IDNameStatus
ABBobbyIn Progress
XYBillyComplete
ABBobbyComplete
XYBennyIn Progress
ABBillyWaiting
CZBennyComplete

 

In the report I have a slicer to select a Name and a table of Data, where I want to show the progress of activities for the selected Name. This should be summarised, so show In Progress if there is anything in progress, if not show Not Started if there is any, if not show Waiting if there is any, if not show Complete if there is any, else leave it blank. Ideally, this will be the result:

 

[Billy selected in Name slicer]
Data

IDValueStatus
AB$1Waiting
XY$2Complete

 

[Bobby selected in Name slicer]
Data

IDValueStatus
AB$1In Progress

 

[Benny selected in Name slicer]
Data

IDValueStatus
XY$2In Progress
CZ$3Complete

 

There are many more names and IDs, but only a few Statuses. How can this be set up?

Hi,  @Alex_ 

 

Accord to your description, I think you can create a measure to display in table visual.

Like this:

Measure = 
VAR a =
    VALUES ( Activities[Status] )
RETURN
    IF (
        "In Progress" IN a,
        "In Progress",
        IF ( "Waiting" IN a, "Waiting", IF ( "Complete" IN a, "Complete" ) )
    )
