I want to create a measure

Hello,

 

I’m new at Power BI and would appreciate your help with a measure.

I have a data table with a date and the name of the employee who worked that day (only 1 employee works per day).

I would like to create a measure that counts the number of days within any given time period that each employee worked.

 

For example, say I have the following data table:

Date

Employee

1/01/2022

Alain L.

2/01/2022

Wouter B.

3/01/2022

Alain L.

4/01/2022

Alain L.

5/01/2022

Virgil P.

6/01/2022

Wouter B.

 

I would like to create a visual using a measure showing the number of days each employee worked, like this:

 

Visual - Days worked

Employee

Jan

Feb

Mar

Alain L.

12

10

14

Wouter B.

8

9

6

Virgil P.

10

11

9

 

I know I have to drop employee into columns on the visual, Year/Month into column and that measure into value.

Which measure I have to create?  Thanks in advance.

Hi @NicoHa ,

 

you don't need a measure for count simply use employee field in values and aggregate it to count thats it.

 

if you really want to create measure use below one

employee count = count(table[employee])

 If this post helps, then please consider Accept it as the solution, Appreciate your Kudos!!
