new column for matrix with weekly-live items

Happy pandemic Forum,


I have a matrix with:

1. A list of 20 deliverables with dates to be delivered (plan sum) and dates they get submitted (sub sum) - these are sourced from two separate spreadsheets connected with a relationship

2. I created (head) columns by "starting-date" week. All random dates are grouped in those weeks


Notice two weeks ago (22 Feb) 3 items were missed / not delivered.

Also last week, (01 Mar) 2 items were missed

I am looking to create a new column (plan sum+) to show the missed items again on shifting current week

Going forward, all missed items in any historic week will accumulate and show again in current week under (plan sum+)
For this exercise, new column (plan sum+) would show
-last week (01 Mar): 3 items that were missed 2 weeks ago, iii, iv, v 
-current week (05 Mar) 4 of 5 missed items (as 1of5 was delivered on week 01 Mar), that would be items, iv, v, viii, x
pbi file:

Is your problem solved?

Hi @v-cazheng-msft 


No, not yet. Any ideas?

Were you able to download the file? I can send a new link

Hi @Mike_Mace 

I can download the link. But I'm a little bit confused that what results you really need. Can you show me your expected visual in the form of a table?

Hi @v-cazheng-msft 


Thank you for looking into this

I am sending a new link with adjusted data as it matters to see which week the calendar is at currently. I am sending the pbi file and a spreadsheet

The spreadsheet first 2x tabs have the data. 

The other 3 tabs have the goal table. One for whenever the current week changes.


  • matrix column "plan sum" counts the data from tab "plan date" (columns A&B)
  • matrix column "sub sum" counts the data from tab "submission date" (columns A&B)
  • matrix column "failed" is a measurement on pbi file. It counts items that were expected for submission but not submitted
  • matrix column "plan+" is the goal. when an item is expected to be submitted but fails, then the item will keep appearing on new current week under "plan+" until the item is finally submitted under "sub sum".
  • For example, see item "v" expected to be received week 15th March 2021 but failed. It was then expected under "plan+" on week 22nd March 2021 but was not submitted again, hence kept appearing under "plan+" in the future weeks too.

@Mike_Mace , You can refer to current week like this


measure =
var _St = today() +-1*WEEKDAY( today() ,2)+1
Var _ed = today() + 7-1*WEEKDAY( today() ,2)
calculate(sum(Table[value]), filter(Table, Table[Date] >= _st && Table[End] <= _ed))

Hi @amitchandak ,


Thanks for the quick reply. Not sure I get the column references you are using there and I am not getting very far.

I've applied the measure to a number of columns on pbi file but no luck. Can you direct a little more on this please.


plan+ =
var _St = today() +-1*WEEKDAY( today() ,2)+1
Var _ed = today() + 7-1*WEEKDAY( today() ,2)
calculate(sum('plan date'[plan sum]), filter('Date Calendar', 'Date Calendar'[Date Calendar] >= _st && [failed] <= _ed))
