Design Approach - 4x Week Task lookead Required

Hello PBI Gurus 

 

I was looking for some inspiration on the simplest or best way to achive my visualisation

 

So Im a new member of the team and want to bring some structure with a work look ahead.  I have a date table linked to my source table.

 

My Key Delivery Date is Due Date which is when is the task due. Tasks are spread over months /years.  But Im just looking for whats happening in the next  4x weeks.  

 

As you can see below - This week has 2x Tasks due etc

     Im hoping for some further assistance. 

I have a date table which looks like so

 

Date = ADDCOLUMNS (

        FILTER (

            CALENDARAUTO (),

            AND ( YEAR ( [Date] ) >= 2020, YEAR ( [Date] ) <= YEAR(TODAY()))

        ),

        "Calendar Year", "CY " & YEAR ( [Date] ),

        "Month Name", FORMAT ( [Date], "mmmm" ),

        "Month Shortname", FORMAT ( [Date], "mmm" ),

        "Month Number", MONTH ( [Date] ),

        "Weekday", FORMAT ( [Date], "dddd" ),

        "Weekday number", WEEKDAY ( [Date] )

    )

 

Above is marked as a Date Table.

 

So after creation I added a new column to this date Table called Week Start Date

 

I then added another new column to the date table using below:

 

Week Rank = RANKX('Date','Date'[Week Start date],,ASC,Dense)

 

I get the following in my Date Table and I think this is the 1st issue?    See Fig 2

 

The Ranks shows as all Digit Ones and Week Start is empty  - See Fig 2

 

Just some further inforamtion:  My Excel Data source (Fig 1)  is super simple and its Columns 1& 2 which is what I wanted to create my look ahead for. Columns 3 & 4 were sanity checkers in excel and will not be used in my calculation:

 

 

I will come to the measures afyter clarifying above. Sorry to ask such lame questions.

 

Its very much apprecited.

@jimmyg706 , Have week rank in date table then use concatenateX

 

Have these new columns in Date Table, Week Rank is Important in Date/Week Table

Week Rank = RANKX('Date','Date'[Week Start date],,ASC,Dense)
OR
Week Rank = RANKX('Date','Date'[Year Week],,ASC,Dense) //YYYYWW format


These measures can help
This Week = CALCULATE(concatenateX(Table, 'Table'[Task Name], ", "), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])))
Next Week = CALCULATE(concatenateX(Table, 'Table'[Task Name], ", "), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])+1))

 

 

Next Week +2= CALCULATE(concatenateX(Table, 'Table'[Task Name], ", "), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])+2))

 

 

Next Week +3= CALCULATE(concatenateX(Table, 'Table'[Task Name], ", "), FILTER(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Week Rank]=max('Date'[Week Rank])+3))
