'OR' include blank values in date slicer

Hi there

 

I have a table with 3 columns , SaleDate, ReceiveDate, and SaleAmount. 

 

SaleDate is not null by default, yet ReceiveDate can accept blank values. 

 

How do I create slicers so that the end users can filter for a certain ReceiveDate and then decide whether to include blanks or not. 

 

In other words. I want the following -

formula in slicer --- or ((ReceiveDate >= Slicermin and ReceiveDate <= Slicermax), isblank(ReceiveDate))

 

As shown in the screen shot below -  I want to be able to select from the 3rd of Jan until the 4th of Jan AND including blanks

Also found an interesting interaction while playing around with the slicer  - it seems that if you have blank values in the date column (ReceiveDate) the left most part of the slider actually represents the blank values.

Thanks

Date should not be joined with receive or uses cross join if have active join

measure =
var _min = minx(allselected(Date,Date[Date])
var _max = minx(allselected(Date,Date[Date])
var _maxval = if(isfiltered(Slicer[Allowblank]),max(Slicer[Allowblank]),blank())
return
if(_maxval ="Allowblank",
calculate(sum(table[Value]),filter(all(Table[Receive Date]),Table[Receive Date]>=_min && Table[Receive Date]>=_max && isblank(Table[Receive Date])))
,
calculate(sum(table[Value]),filter(all(date),Date,Date[Date]>=_min && Date[Date]>=_max))
)

For use relation and crossfilter refer :https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/HR-Analytics-Active-Employee-Hire-and-Termination-tr...

Hi ,

Can you please guide me what the "Slicer[Allowblan] is refering to? I can see you have mentioned it is to see weather blank is allowed on not. but this is a column in our table? or a slicer? not sure how to get this.
