Creating a filter from measures

Hello,

 

I have 2 measures I am using (TY Sales, LY Sales). 

 

I created a measure (with help from this board) to summarize if TY sales or LY sales is 0 for the filtered time period, it returns a 1, otherwise 0.

 

IF(coalesce([TY Sales],0) = 0,1,if(coalesce([LY Sales],0) = 0,1,0))

 

How would I be able to get this in a slicer or the page level filter pane? Ideally I would rename the 0/1 to some text

Hi, @OCBB_SFAFPandA ;

1. Calculation column/table not support dynamic changed based on filter or slicer.
2. Measure can be affected by filter/slicer, so you can use it to get dynamic summary result in a visual by its row context.

So you could not drag a measure into slicer, this will lead to an infinite loop.


Until now, we can't add measure in Page level filter, please review this 
feature request and vote it.

It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

@OCBB_SFAFPandA 

 

This can be done, what is the problem?

 

 

 

The TY/LY sales are measures and PBI doesn't allow me to drag the condition measure to a slicer or filter pane. On the filter pane, I can only do it on a visual

Some other solutions I saw were to include in condition formula in my table and make it "invisible" and filter that way. But I need the users to have the option with a slicer/page visual pane to either have the condition on or off.
