Measure does not work with slicer/filter

Hi guys, 


I am new to PowerBi and have a question regarding the interaction of filters with measures. I have a slicer on the page called "TimestampHistory". It interacts with all visuals on the page but with two very simple custom measures: 


Active Measures =
    SUM('Database (hist)_Status'[Measure Operativ]);
    COUNTA('Database (hist)_Status'[MN-ID])
Weighted Degree of Achievement=
    SUM('DatabaseAkt (hist)'[Completed Days]);
    SUM('DatabaseAkt (hist)'[Duration in Days])
Now my question is whether I have to include the usage of said slicer into the measure formulas or if there is another workaround?
Thanks a lot in advance!

"I have a slicer on the page called "TimestampHistory"." - What are we selecting in this slicer? 


The two measures : are they on card visuals or part of tables/matrix? Please specify.

What is the expected result from selecting something in the slicer?


Can you provide a link to the pbix or at least a data model picture for starters?
