# segmentation on days difference between two dates

Hi,

Problem: how can I perform segmentation of customers based on the DiffDates (number of days between today and date of the last transaction) with use of ranges defined in a separate and non-conected with the model table. I would like to select for example a "Hot"  range on the slicer to filter all my customers who made last transaction within 0-30 days from today.

I have the following input:

Ranges Table (it is not conected with the model)

Ranges[Name] | Ranges[Min Value in Days] | Ranges[Max Value in Days]

Hot | 0 | 30
Warm| 30 | 60

Cold |60 | 180

Frozen |180 | 9999999

Sales Table
Sales[CustomerId] | Sales[InvoiceNo] | Sales[Date]

Mesures

#LastTransaction = LASTDATE(Sales[Date])

#DiffDates = if(ISBLANK([#LastTransaction]);BLANK();VALUE(TODAY()-[#LastTransaction]))

I have the following tabel report:

Sales[CustomerId] | #LastTransaction | #DiffDates

I need to filter for example only HOT range customers by selecting a range with use of filter/slicer.

Thx a lot for help !

Hi @paweldm,

In your scenario, you can create a new table from the Sales table:

Table = SUMMARIZE('Table1','Table1'[CustomerID],"LastTransaction",MAX('Table1'[date]))

Then create calculated columns in this table:

DiffDates = if(ISBLANK([LastTransaction]),BLANK(),VALUE(TODAY()-[LastTransaction]))

Range = SWITCH(TRUE(),'Table'[DiffDates]>0 && 'Table'[DiffDates]<30,"Hot",'Table'[DiffDates]>30 && 'Table'[DiffDates]<60,"Warm",'Table'[DiffDates]>60 && 'Table'[DiffDates]<180,"Cold",'Table'[DiffDates]>180 && 'Table'[DiffDates]<9999999,"Frozen")

Create a relationship between the Sales table and this new table use CustomerID. Drag Range column from the new table into a slicer visual. For more information, please check attached .pbix.

Is there a solution to add to the report one more measure to calculate frequency of invoices?

The frequency is to be calculated as a Customer LifeTime (calculated in days since the first transaction till today)  divided by TotalInvoices (calculated as a total number of invoices generated by a customer during its LifeTime)

My current tabel report has the following columns and works exelent with "temperature" slicer:

CustomerID | LastTransaction | DiffDates
