## Using a IF measure as slicer

Hello everyone!

I'm new here and I need some help with a DAX measure that I'm using.

The only way for me to get the informartion below is only avaliable through the measure I'm posting here.

My question is: can I use it as a Slicer?

I tried using it as a slicer but unfortunately I couldn't do it, it's beucase I can't use the IF as a slicer? Or it need to be done in a different way?

Can someone shed me some light in this problem?

Many thanks.

@Anonymous  In general, to use a measure in that way, you need to use the Disconnected Table Trick as this article demonstrates: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Solving-Attendance-with-the-Disconnected-Table-Trick/ba-p/279563
