Get the historical curve of the Top 1 brand this month

Hi there,

 

I am working on a social listening project, and one of the specific tasks is to display the Top 1 mentioned brand of THIS month and the historical curve of the brand. Probably like this

I have a date slicer working on them, the problem is that I do not know how to achieve this 2-step filtering:

1. Let date filter the Top brand

2. Let the brand filter the curve

The date cannot work directly on the curve or else only a dot will be displayed.

Please let me know if anyone has a brilliant idea to solve this!

Hi nuci ,

A way to think about the first measure is a filtered table (lets call it top_brand) which is a summary of months, with a calculated column [top brand] which is the top brand for that month. 

 

I am assuming we start with something like this:

brand1.PNG

To get the top brand for each month we can calculate this with some tricks:

Count of Mentions = SUM('Brand Mentions'[Mentions])
Top Brand Mentions = MAXX(VALUES('Brand Mentions'[Brand]),[Count of Mentions])
Top Brand =
CALCULATE (
VALUES ( 'Brand Mentions'[Brand] ),
TOPN (
1,
FILTER (
VALUES ( 'Brand Mentions'[Brand] ),
[Count of Mentions]
= CALCULATE ( [Top Brand Mentions], VALUES ( 'Brand Mentions'[Brand] ) )
),
'Brand Mentions'[Brand]
)
)

this will give you this output:

brand 3.PNG

 

then you can create a calculated table for the above output with this code:

Top Brand = ADDCOLUMNS(VALUES('Brand Mentions'[Month]),"Top Brand",[Top Brand])

 

Then you can model it back into the model with a cross filter as per below

brand2.PNG

then when you select a month in the "Top brand" table the top brand will be displayed and will go on to filter the brand mentions table for history.

brand 4.PNG

its a crude example but hopefully it gives you an idea of how to approach it.. gets a bit tricky..
