Highlighting duplicate values in a power BI table

Hi guys,

I am working on a report that shows types and number of outlets that are visited by sales reps. When an sales rep visits an outlet more than once, it appears as a duplicate in our database. I have been asked to highlight which outlets have been visited more than once (duplicated values only) and show the number of revisits done.

I'd appreciate if someone sheds a light on the best approach to solve this.

Thanks.

Hi @Kaskazi_Network ,

 

You can group by Outlet and add a record count as a calculated column.

Consequently, you could filter your visual to only show records where this record count > 1.

 

Alternatively, you can use the summarizecolumns function in DAX which actually does the same as the group by but won't store the data in memory. More information on this function you can find here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/summarizecolumns-function-dax

Hi @Kaskazi_Network 

 

You can use the distinct count to calculate the visits whether more than once, output the value as calculated column. and then use the conditional firmatting to highlight it. 

Please share the dummy pbix with expected results disclosed if you'd like us to draw it up for you.

Hello, I have to do something similar to what you did, can you guide me how you managed to do it, I'm starting to use this tool. I need to count the repeated records and these in turn have different dates

@Kaskazi_Network , Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

The highligted outlets indicate that that outlet was visited three times on different dates. I want to show only these duplicated outlets and indicate the number of all revisits..
