Week over week line graph comparing Q1 vs Q2 data?

Hello,

 

I am trying to create a line graph that compares weekly data in Q1 vs Q2. I have created a custom column for Week of Quarter and created separate measures to compare each quarter. My current line graph is getting the correct total figures but is ignoring the time series context and just giving me a flat line. Image below.

Here is an example of one of the measures I'm using:

 

Q1 DemGen Total =
CALCULATE([DemGenTotal],
DATESINPERIOD(
Date_Lookup[Date],
DATE(2022,01,01), 1,QUARTER))

 

I believe the measure context is overruling the context from the x-axis. I think I need to make some edits to the above measure but I'm not sure what I'd need to change.

 

Anybody able to lend some insight?

 

Thanks!

Hi @jonfrank3366 ,

According to your description, I create a sample and it can get the correct result by your formula.

I guess it may be a matter of week of quarter or [DemGen Total] measure.

I attach my sample below, you can see what's different from yours.

@jonfrank3366 , Just create a measure for this Qtr vs last qtr

 

Last Qtr =
var _max1 = if(isfiltered('Date'),MAX( 'Date'[Date]) , today())
var _max = eomonth(_max,-1* if( mod(Month(_max),3) =0,3,Month(_max)))
var _min = eomonth(_min,-3)+1
return
CALCULATE([net] ,Filter('Date','Date'[Date]>= _min && 'Date'[Date] <= _max))
//Or use all
CALCULATE([net] ,Filter(all('Date'[Date]),'Date'[Date]>= _min && 'Date'[Date] <= _max))

 

 

Qtr =
var _max = if(isfiltered('Date'),MAX( 'Date'[Date]) , today())
var _min = eomonth(_max,-1* if( mod(Month(_max),3) =0,3,Month(_max)))+1
return
CALCULATE([net] ,Filter('Date','Date'[Date]>= _min && 'Date'[Date] <= _max))

 

or trailing qtr for last qtr

trailing QTR = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,QUARTER))
