Link measure to a certain period

Hi everyone, 


I am creating a dashboard that tracks revenue over years and gives an outlook on the future revenue based on several factors. In a graph, I would need to show past revenue for closed years and estimated revenue for the current year. While the factors I base the Estimated part on are all linked with time (past months for revenue we already have, future months for scheduled revenue we expect, estimated revenue from some deals our sellers have in a pipeline), once I created the measure itself, it is time-independent. For that reason, once I get to creating the graph and use the sum of (Actual past revenue) for the past years and (Estimated revenue) for this year, the Estimated revenue gets "spread" over the years and inflates the past revenue. 


I thought this would be an easy fix, maybe some function that links the Estimated revenue to just the current year? But couldn't find any. Will be most grateful for any help.
