I have a dataset of timesheet data, relevant columns are:
Entry Date - date of time entry e.g. 26 July 2018
Hours Worked- time spent on an activity - decimal hours
Task User Name - details of a specific actitvity e.g. Administration
MonthYear - custom column showing just hte Month and Year to help order things - August 2018
I need to show the time spent on a task (e.g. administration) as a percentage of the total time recorded in a single month. I think I need to create an additonal column with the subtotal of hours for each month and then can use that to create the percentage in a further column but i cannot work out how to make the subtotal!
It also needs to be dynamic as am creating a template that I want to run each month without updating it...
Any help appreicated.
You need to create a measure to calculate this:
hours = SUM ( Timesheet[Hours Worked] ) / CALCULATE ( SUM ( Timesheet[Hours Worked] ); ALL ( Timesheet[Month Year]; Timesheet[Task User Name] ) )
Without any data example is difficult to give you a better answer.
Chan you share some sample data and expected result?
Thanks for replying.
Sample data attached.
I don't understand how that measure will help me to find the monthly total for each month and then
allow me to use that in later calculations?
I can get the subtotals in a visualisation easily - I just want to use these montly substotals in further calculations!
Is there a way to refer to this table or can i create this table dynamically in an expression so i can set up a robust template?
