Date and Time Filters

Hi, 

 

Im having trouble filtering between a certain range of dates, and then after, filtering a certain range of hours.

 

I need all the incidents from 3/1/22 and 9/30/22. (That I can do with the sclicer)

 

Next, I need incidents only from 6:00 PM - 7:00AM between 3/1/22 - 9/30/22.

Thank you!

@amandabus21 Meant to be used in the Filters pane actually. The intent was to slice using your TimeTable. However, you may need two time tables, one to set a min and one to set a max. And, if you need to go from one day to the next (PM -> AM) then you will probably need to tweak the measure selector accordingly.

@amandabus21 Construct a TimeTable for your Time slicer:

 

HourTable = 
SELECTCOLUMNS(
    ADDCOLUMNS(
        GENERATESERIES(1,24,1),
        "Hour",TIME([Value],0,0)
    ),
    "Hour",[Hour]
)

 

Then create a Complex Selector like:

 

Time Selector Measure =
  VAR __Opened = MAX('Table'[Date Opened])
  VAR __MaxTime = MAX('TimeTable'[Hour])
  VAR __MinTime = MIN('TimeTable'[Hour])
  VAR __Time = __Opened - TRUNC(__Opened)
RETURN
  SWITCH(TRUE(),
    __Time >= __MaxTime, 1
    __Time <= __MinTime && __Time >= 0, 1,
    0
  )

@Greg_Deckler do i make the TimeTable as a column or a measure? 

@amandabus21 As a table. In Report view in the Desktop, choose the Modeling tab and then New table and paste in that formula.

Hi Greg, thanks for your help. @Greg_Deckler 

 

I was able to create the table but now when I create the measure I am getting a syntax error.

@amandabus21 Whoops, missed a comma after the first SWITCH condition:

Time Selector Measure =
  VAR __Opened = MAX('Table'[Date Opened])
  VAR __MaxTime = MAX('TimeTable'[Hour])
  VAR __MinTime = MIN('TimeTable'[Hour])
  VAR __Time = __Opened - TRUNC(__Opened)
RETURN
  SWITCH(TRUE(),
    __Time >= __MaxTime, 1,
    __Time <= __MinTime && __Time >= 0, 1,
    0
  )

@Greg_Deckler thank you. 

 

Now how can I use that measure to filter the time between 6PM - 7AM? 

 

Should I make a new column or is it supposed to be used a slicer?
