How to Summarise tables by month and name?

I have a table with 4 columns: Name, Hours spent, Date and Location. 


There can be multiple entries for the same name


I want to summarise the table by adding the amount of hours spent by a person in a given month and in a given year. How dothat? I have used the sumarise column to add it up by name but would need to display this information on a month and year basis.

I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, but please check a below pictuure and the attached pbix file.

If you turn on the option - Auto Date/Time, the aggregation will be automatically done.

You should create a dedicated calendar table in your model then hook that to your fact table.  Then you can use the month / year from the calendar table and the names from your fact table to do the summary you are looking for.  Take a look at this article about how to make a calendar table.
