Pie Chart not filtering

Good afternoon!  I am working on a dataflow and I'm not sure why this won't work.... I have two tables: Company and EventType.

Company contains: CompanyName and Event Type contains: EventTypeName, PullarType, AssessmentType.


When I make a table with just the EventType columns it looks like this:


Then, when I add the CompanyName it looks like this:



I want to create a pie chart summing up the AssessmentType column (how many Bronze, Gold, Other, and Silvers).  

So, I make a pie chart and bring in the AssessmentType as the Legend and Values.  I also want to filter by ONE CompanyName (in this example I will use TMMWV).



When I do that though.... I don't get the right numbers.  I shold be getting 1 gold, 1 bronze, 1 other, and 3 silver.


Help!!  What am I doing wrong?

What result do you get when you drag this measure to the pie chart visual

Measure = distinctcount(Data[Pillartype])

Hope this helps.

This is what I get.... I need it to be the sum of the assessment types (so all of the bronze grouped together, all of the silver, all of the gold, and all of the other.)

I would avoid using the page or visual based filters if at all possible, and instead focus on building a data model, connecting DIMs to FACTs and/or transforming your dataset and also writing DAX measures can render the data visual you need with slicers. 



How would I go about creating Measures to render the data visual I need?  Since I am using a dataflow, there are limited things I can do.  Thanks in advance!
