Merge date columns from different tables

I have 2 different tables 

1. Incidents

2. observations

Both have date fields 

1. Incidents   - Incident date

2. observations - Created Date.

 

Currently I am maintaining 2 date filters to filter incidents and observations. I want to merge date columns, so I can have one date filter.

Hi  @Anonymous ,

You can create a Date table, then use this Date table to create a relationship with your two tables.

Dear @v-joesh-msft ,

 

I tried doing that, when I tried creating new relationship, Hierarchy in existing date columns disappears and creating new hierarchy doesnt works out.

Hi  @Anonymous ,

This is the case, and accordingly, you can use the hierarchy in the Date table.

Hi,

Create a Calendar Table by going to Modelling > New Table.  Build a relationship from the Date column of both Tables to the Date column of the Calendar Table.

Hope this helps.
