Count by Date Measure

I created a date measure by pulling a date field based on a keyword search:

 

 

DOT Date = CALCULATE(MAX(LoanContractPostClosingConditionLogs[DateReceived]),SEARCH("Deed of Trust", LoanContractPostClosingConditionLogs[Description],1,0)>0)

 

 

 

So when I'm using this measure with the LoanNumber field, I'm getting something like this:

 

LoanNumberDOT Date
0017/9/2021
0027/2/2021
0037/2/2021
0046/5/2021
0056/5/2021
0067/2/2021

 

If I want to take it a step further to count the number of loans for each DOT Date, so that it looks something like this:

DOT DateNumber of Loans
6/5/20212
7/2/20213
7/9/20211

 

How do I build a Number of Loans measure?  Is it possible to relate this DOT Date field to my Date table so that if I create a date slicer it'll reference the DOT Date?  Or I'd just have to build the slicer based on the DOT Date field itself?

@Anonymous try this measure, assuming you have a calendar table in your model, and to visualize, use date from calendar table and the following measure:

 

Loan Count by DOT Date = 
VAR __LoansInDate =
        FILTER (
            SUMMARIZE ( Data, Data[Loan] ),
            VAR __LoanDOTDate = [Loan DOT Date] 
            VAR __LoanDOTDateInDate = 
                FILTER (                     
                    'Calendar',
                    NOT ISBLANK ( __LoanDOTDate )  //can remove this condition if never going to be a blank Loan Max Date
                    && 'Calendar'[Date] = __LoanDOTDate
                )
            VAR __IsLoanInDate = NOT ISEMPTY ( __LoanDOTDateInDate )
            RETURN __IsLoanInDate
        )
VAR Result =
    CALCULATE (
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( Data[Loan] ),    
        KEEPFILTERS ( __LoansInDate )  
    )
RETURN Result

@Anonymous I assume Loan is a unique column in that table?

If you create a calculated column instead of a measure for "DOT Date" then it will be easy to summarize.

I can't create a calculated column because I'm working within a cube and I don't have admin rights 😞
