Learn how to troubleshoot Time-Intelligence Measures in Power BI At New Year!

Time intelligence is the core functionality of any BI tool. Talking about Power BI, do you ever wonder "Why do my MTD/QTD/YTD measures suddenly stop working at the start of the new year, even when the calendar table is updated?"


In this Power BI tutorial, we'll tackle a common challenge that often arises at the start of a new year: the sudden halt of essential time-based metrics such as Month-to-Date (MTD), Quarter-to-Date (QTD), and Year-to-Date (YTD).


This issue arises because Power BI's time intelligence functions rely on a calendar table, which needs updating with the new year's dates. Surprisingly, this problem can persist even if you've already updated your calendar table. We'll guide you through resolving this issue by walking you through the process of updating your calendar table and reconfiguring your time intelligence functions.


But that's not all – we'll also demonstrate how to go beyond fixing MTD/QTD/YTD issues. We'll show you how to display these measures up to today's date, providing you with a real-time perspective on your data, which is incredibly useful for monitoring business performance.
