Dynamically change dimension based on Slicer value

Hello Power BI-Folks,

 

currently I am trying to do the following:

 

I have a report with a card visual. There is a tooltipp on the card that shows the average order value over time. I have selected Year-Month as the standard X-Axis of the tooltip visual. 

On the right hand side I have a year slicer. Now my problem is:

 

I want the dimension in the tooltip to be dynamically. When year slicer value is "All" I want the dimension on the X-Axis to be Year.

And when I choose a specific year, I want the dimension on the X-Axis to be Month.

I tried it with field parameters, but this doesn't seem to work... Do you guys have any idea? 🙂

Hi @ahanfouf 

A type of automatic selection can be achieved with field parameters and another small manipulation with Dax.

Please follow these steps:

1. create  field parameters for months /years

2. create a measure for "automation"

Slicer_sel_falg =
VAR Numyears =
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Data Table'[Year] )
VAR CurrentDateField =
    MIN ( 'Date axis'[Date axis] )
RETURN
    INT (
        OR (
            AND ( Numyears = 1, CurrentDateField = "Start of Month" ),
            AND ( Numyears > 1, CurrentDateField = "Year" )
        )
    )

3. filter put field parameter as axis X and filter by this flag :

*Works perfectly as a tooltip too.

Thanks for this quick and very helpful answer @Ritaf1983 ! 🙂 It really works like a charm. 

 

There is only 1 thing I am struggling with:

I need this dynamic value also in my sparkline visual.

Is this also possible ? I tried to replace the Monat column with the Field Parameter, but I couldn't make it work...

I thought that I just need a DAX Measure exactly the same as the Top1 visual filter, but I couldn't extract the Field Parameter inside a measure ?!

Do you have any idea ? This is the link where I copied the Sparkline DAX Code: Link

 

Thank you anyways very much in advance!!! 😊 

 

 

Hi @ahanfouf 
I don't think it is possible with sparkline,
as an alternative combine cards with the regular line chart .
I have these combinations in my dashboards and it looks great.
