Fix Measure to work in Matrix table

Hello, I have a measure counting records created for the year. The simple TOTALYTD function in DAX does not produce the correct result so I learned the hard way sometime ago and used Greg Deckler's version to get YTD and I get the correct result in a card visual, but as soon as I add it to a matrix table it is wrong. I remove the ALL function of result variable and then my total count is wrong, but works in the matrix table. Any advice on how to make it work?

TOTALYTD =
VAR __Date = MAX('POs 2'[DATE CREATED])
VAR __StartOf = DATE(YEAR(__Date),1,1)
VAR __DATESYTD = FILTER(SELECTCOLUMNS(ALL('POs 2'),"Date",[DATE CREATED]),[Date] >= __StartOf && [Date] <= __Date)
RETURN
COUNTX(
FILTER(ALL
('POs 2'),[DATE CREATED] IN __DATESYTD
),
'POs 2'[PO ID]
)

Without ALL in the return (Wrong total records)

With ALL added in Return (Correct total, wrong values in cells)

@ElvirBotic . Use measures like. Here net is my measure. Always use date table

YTD =
var _max = if(isfiltered('Date'),MAX( 'Date'[Date]) , today())
var _min = eomonth(_max,-1*MONTH(_max))+1
return
CALCULATE([net] ,DATESBETWEEN('Date'[Date],_min,_max))

LYTD =
var _max1 = if(isfiltered('Date'),MAX( 'Date'[Date]) , today())
var _max = Date(Year(_max1)-1, Month(_max1), Day(_max1))
var _min = eomonth(_max,-1*MONTH(_max))+1
return
CALCULATE([net] ,DATESBETWEEN('Date'[Date],_min,_max))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.

Is net just countrows of table? or is it a countx?

net =
countrows ( POs )
)
