My team has been challeneged to represent counts in a dynamic way (I think, I'm not actually sure of the best way to pull this off).
We have data for declined contracts vs accepted contracts. There are occassion where a candidate will decline and soon after change their mind and accept.
Name: Candidate Table
What they are looking for is counts by recruiter name
The rough part: if they have both a declined and accepted date
if the date range filter include both dates then only the "Final" or last contract status is counted
|Date Filter||7/8/22 - 7/15/22|
if the date range filter doesn't include both then it counts the one in that range
|Date Filter||7/8/22 - 7/10/22|
|Date Filter||7/10/22 - 7/18/22|
I hope that makes sense! I was thinking a parameter is needed? or am I not going down the right path for this? I wasn't sure if a bunch of "if" statements was a performance friendly way to go either.
Any help would be fantastic!
Is it possible that a candidate rejects and then accepts on the same day? Because if that's the case, you've got a problem. You'll have to also store the time of such events.
There is a chance - we do have the date/time the action happened.
Hi @jessimica1018 ,
You can try this method:
New a date table:
Date = CALENDAR(MIN('Candidate Table'[Declined]), MAX('Candidate Table'[Accepted]) )
In the candidate table, create two measures:
Accept = CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'Candidate Table'[Accepted] ), FILTER ( 'Candidate Table', 'Candidate Table'[Accepted] >= MIN ( 'Date'[Date] ) && 'Candidate Table'[Accepted] <= MAX ( 'Date'[Date] ) ) )
Declines = VAR _minormax = IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Candidate Table'[Declined] ) < SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Candidate Table'[Accepted] ), BLANK (), CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'Candidate Table'[Declined] ), FILTER ( 'Candidate Table', 'Candidate Table'[Declined] <= MAX ( 'Date'[Date] ) && 'Candidate Table'[Declined] >= MIN ( 'Date'[Date] ) ) ) ) RETURN IF ( MIN ( 'Candidate Table'[Accepted] ) >= MAX ( 'Date'[Date] ), _minormax )
Use the date table to be a slicer.
The result is:
Hope this helps you.

This is so insanely close to what we need!! The only issue we've ran into with this is when the decline date is after the accepted data. It's not showing any counts for the declines (I'm thinking thats why? maybe?) It isn't a super common occurance but it does happen.
We have tried adjusting the decline formula a bit but nothing on our end is making this work.
