HIstoric Rolling MEasure

I have a Measure that calculates the Customer Lifetime Revenue [CLR]. When graphed on a line graph with a date axis, it displays the CLR filtered for just that day. I wanted to create a measure that displayed how the CLR changes over time. Obviously a single day isn't that worthwhile as all it's doing is showing the revenue per customer that day. 

 

So, I created a new Measure:

CLR2YR = Calculate(
[CLR],datesbetween(Dates[Date],SELECTEDVALUE(Dates[Date]) - 730,SELECTEDVALUE(Dates[Date])
))
 
This does the job, but it is EXTREMELY slow. Any suggestions on how to make it more performant?
 
Thanks

I would recommend you install and use DAX Studio to evaluate the query plan, and to check if alternative implementations have better performance.  Avoid nesting measures , use variables, try SUMX etc.

Hi, @Chaucer ;

May be you could try it.

measure=CALCULATE([CLR],DATESINPERIOD('Table'[Date],SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date]),-730,DAY))

Or 

Measure = 
var _se=SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Date])
return CALCULATE([CLR]),datesbetween('Table'[Date],_se-730,_se))
