How to use a measure as slicer?

Hi, I have a measure which categorise my data based on few statuses. How can I use this status measure as a slicer?

Status = IF(ISBLANK(Difference),"Gray", IF(Difference>0, "Green", IF(Difference<0, "Red", "Amber")))

- Difference is a measure as well-


I need a slicer with Gray, Green, Red , Amber so users can filter the data base on this. I have to use a measure for the status as a calulated column will not give me the desired results. I cant drag the measure as a slicer.
Thanks.

Hi @yybi123 ,

 

Based on your description, you can so some steps as follows.

Here is my test table.

v-yuaj-msft_0-1616135482438.png

I create two measures as follows.

Difference = MAXX('Measure_Slicer_test',[D2]-[D1])
Status = IF(ISBLANK([Difference]),"Gray", IF([Difference]>0, "Green", IF([Difference]<0, "Red", "Amber")))
1. Create a calculated table.
Status = 

var x1=SUMMARIZE('Measure_Slicer_test',Measure_Slicer_test[Product],"Status",[Status])

return

SUMMARIZE(x1,[Status])

2. use "Status"[Status] to create a slicer.

3. create a measure, then drag it to the table visual of the original table and set the value as "1".

Measure_filter = 

var x1=SELECTEDVALUE('Status'[Status])

return

IF(ISBLANK(x1),1,IF([Status]=x1,1,0))

Can the same princple be applied to a Matrix? i'm struggling to filter on a Matrix as have added a measure and only want certain records to show.

Add the 'Measure_Filter' to the Matrix as a Field and see how it populates. This helped me visualize this workaround. You should see all 1's. From there you could try to identify why it is not working in the Matrix. Without seeing a model or screenshot, my first thought is it needs adjusting due to a hiearchy?

Hi @v-yuaj-msft ,

 

From calculated table [Status],
In case the orginial table have several month and business unit, how can we add a column to count how many product under each status, based on date and Business unit filter from Original table.

Great solution representing the inguinity of using the OOB PBI capablities. 


Thank you !

Hi Team,

 

If One date is fixed and another date is selected on slicer then substarct both dates. and create measure of Date Bucket.

How to create date bucket measure in slicer.

 

Thanks! I have a very similar problem. Did exactly the steps you described and it works for the respective page perfectly.

 

But in my PBI data model i have several pages with different visualizations. And, i do want to make this new slicer (green, red etc.) to be applied for all other pages as well, but it doesn't work at all. 

Any solutions for this?

Hope to hear from you.

 

Best,

The Challenger

@yybi123 , You need to create an independent table with these measure values. and then use them in slicer with group(values)

refer example of binning and segmentation
