Hello,

 

By default, it will put the average sales amount of that month, if you want to use the diary monthly average, you will have to create a measure to sum the monthly sales, and then, divide it by the number of days.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

In addition, if you need to calculate the average by day, you can create measure using codes below .

Average by day= DIVIDE(SUM([Sale Amount]),CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Date]), FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table1), YEAR(Table1[Date]) =YEAR(MAX(Table1[Date]))&&MONTH(Table1[Date]) =MONTH(MAX(Table1[Date])))))
