percentage slicer

Hi,

 

Is there a way of creating a percentage slicer. For example I have a set of data that shows the forecast Revenue, but I want to be able to add a slicer that adjusts the forecast based on a percentage slicer. So if I want to see how the forecast looks if we only have a 75% confidence in the forecast - what does that look like, or if we are 90% confident how does it look.

 

I'm sure there is a simply way, I just can't figure it out.

 

thanks

Victoria

Re: percentage slicer

No, the idea of a selection based table is that you can get your measures to check the filter context of the selection table and alter their output accordingly.  The use of "MIN" or "MAX" handle that while you expect the table to only ever have a single row, it also covers when nothing is selected

Re: percentage slicer

Hi @vcmoffatt,

 

Currently, there is a confidence interval option under Analytics pane, the appearance of forecast revenue will be dynamically changed depend on the selected value. However, this is the only way to change the confidence percentage, it is not available to move it into a slicer.

Re: percentage slicer

Here is another method.  Create a Confidence Table.  This table will have 3 columns:

Column 1: Numeric ID from 1 onwards as whole numbers
Column 2: The text to display in your slicer
Column 3: Numeric effect on your formula

Now you set up your slicer to use column 2 of that table.  Then your forecast measure can be affected by Column 3 using a MIN statement.

For example, lets say that you suggest "If my forecast confidence is <75%, multiply the forecast by 1.1.  If my forecast is between 75% and 125%, do nothing, and lastly if its above 125% we will multiply by 0.9.

So my Columns in the selection table would have the IDs and Text to display the ranges (or individual values) and then column 3 would contain 1.1, 1, or 0.9.

Now my Adjustment Forecast measure would be

Forecast = [Old Forecast Measure] * MIN('Selection Table'[Column3Name])

 

 

EDIT:  Something to note.  Side as ID 1 for whatever you want the default to be.  Whenever nothing is selection, 1 will be your minimum value, thus your default.

Re: percentage slicer

Thank you @Ross73312, but I@m not sure I entirely understand. Would I create a relationship between this new table and my existing data?

 

thanks

Hi @vcmoffatt,

 

The forecasting feature applies to line chart visual.
