Using RANKX to order by date and more criterias

Hi,

 

I am trying to order one table by date using RankX() but taking into account that when the value is the same on column "Name" the output should be the same and that I only want to order when value at column "Task" is "PUBLISH". It's a bit difficult to explain so I show it with a table and the desired output.

 

Thank you in advance!

Rank CC =
VAR _newtable =
    FILTER ( Data, Data[Task] = "PUBLISH" )
VAR _rankcolumn =
    SUMMARIZE (
        ADDCOLUMNS (
            _newtable,
            "@rank", COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( _newtable, Data[Date] <= EARLIER ( Data[Date] ) ) )
        ),
        Data[Name],
        [@rank]
    )
RETURN
    MAXX ( FILTER ( _rankcolumn, Data[Name] = EARLIER ( Data[Name] ) ), [@rank] )

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!
