How to create a measure to calculate count of active user % in specific department in given month

Hello, 

 

I am trying to get some help here for my dashboard. Thank you for anyone who will help in advance! 

 

we are trying to track the % of user on a plaftform for each department, month by month.  

ZhaoxiZ_1-1679683378411.png

The logic : 

sum of the active user of specific department of given month / sum of the active user  for the given month

the example will be for accounting investment department active user % for Nov 2022 will be 50/399.

 

Notes: 

1. 720 Cnt active user is a measure I created. ( logic: calculate( distinctcount(memberID), Logon='1')

2. highlighted 50 is also from cnt active user column, broken down by department. 

3. my goal is to create a line chart to show the % active user of each different department month by month

Hi @ZhaoxiZ,

You can try to use the following measure formula on the table visual with year month as category to get correspond percentage:

formual =
DIVIDE (
    CALCULATE (
        COUNT ( Table[department] ),
        ALLSELECTED ( Table ),
        VALUES ( Table[Date] )
    ),
    CALCULATE ( [Cnt active users], ALLSELECTED ( Table ), VALUES ( Table[Date] ) )
)

Hi Xiaoxin, 

 

Thank you for the quick response, I have tried the DAX you have provide above, somhow the values are not correct. This is what I have found. 

 

The denominator 

CALCULATE ( [Cnt active users], ALLSELECTED ( Table ), VALUES ( Table[Date] ) )

is correct, it returns all the active user count for the given month. 

 

The Numerator

CALCULATE (
        COUNT ( Table[department] ),
        ALLSELECTED ( Table ),
        VALUES ( Table[Date] )
    )

seems counting the total number of the department of the given month, it returns large numbers as below:

For 'performance' department,  2023- Feb. The 'Cnt active users' =18. 

The value returned should be 18/ 412=4.37%

 

Three values we need for the calculation are 'Date', 'Cnt active user', 'department' becasue it shows the right numbe when I put these three columns in the view. I just dont know what synatx should I use to return the right value. Thank you for your help in advance!

Hi @ZhaoxiZ,

Can you please share some dummy data that keep the raw data structure with expected results? It should help us clarify your scenario and test to coding formula.
