Getting Quartely Average from Months



My dataset has a column for months and a corresponding column for the Quarter the month falls in, When putting the data in a simple bar chart I am getting a sum of my data in Quarter 1&2 etc rather than a average of the Jan-Mar in quarter 1, have played around with if and tried a few dax expressions but nothing has worked yet,


The way I want the data to be presented in a sum(jan and feb and Mar) divided by 3 and this would be quarter 1 and so on for q2 etc,


Any help would be brill,

@Bill_OC ,

Try like

QTD Avg Sales = CALCULATE(averagex(Values(Date[Month Year])CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]))) ,DATESQTD(('Date'[Date])))


Qtr Sales = CALCULATE(averagex(Values(Date[Month Year])CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]))) ,DATESQTD(ENDOFQUARTER('Date'[Date])))

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.
