Counting activity per day based on type of activity

Hi everyone,

 

I have a dataset that looks like this:

 

CreationTimeActivity
02/11/2022CreateReport
02/11/2022CreateReport
03/11/2022ViewReport

 

What I want to be able to do is group up each of the dates by the activity 'CreateReport', so I will see that 02/11/2022 had 2 instances of that activity type and so on for more dates. My overall plan is then to get this into a line graph to show overtime how many reports were created per day and/or month.

 

I'm a bit stumped where to start, I was thinking some kind of distinct count based on a filter? Could someone point me in the right direction?

 

Many thanks!

Hi,

 

I think I was possibly overthinking the solution, here is what worked for me:

 

CreatedReports =
CALCULATE (
COUNT ( Logs[Activity] ),
FILTER(Logs, Logs[Activity] = "CreateReport"
))
 
This counts up the activities and simply filters to find the activity I needed. This works and looks good in my area chart.

Hi @Stuquan,

 

You can use this formula to create a new table that filters the table by activity CreateReport and then shows the number of records for every date:

 

Result = SUMMARIZE(FILTER('Table','Table'[Activity]="CreateReport"),'Table'[CreationTime],"Count",COUNT('Table'[Activity]))

 

Works for you? Mark this post as a solution if it does!
