Plot a measure that is based on a parameter or create a dynamic calculated column



I have a paramater which sets a certain threshold value. This then looks at each row of my data and will estimate a date that particular row will meet that threshold. I have done it with a measure. I now have a table like this




What I want to be able to do is plot the counts of dates as a bar chart. Therefore count how many rows match that date and have the date as the x axis. I expect the visual will change when i change the threshold slicer.


Is this possible?

Hi @fingalbrad,


Use summarize to count the number of times a date appears in your result table:


Count Table = SUMMARIZE('Result','Result'[Date],"Count",COUNT('Result'[ID]))


Create the join between the dates in this table and Date table and use the Count column in the Y-Axis.


Works for you? Mark this post as a solution if it does!
Consider taking a look at my blog: How to Export Telemetry Data from Azure IoT Central into Power BI

This doesnt work sorry. What I should probably have explained better is this is the first table

its called JP outputs

NotificationFire Risk


I have a paramater called fire threshold. This is a slicer on my page. I have created a measure called threshold date which uses the value of fire threshold and calculates the date the fire risk will grow to that value


I then create a table visual and get


NotificationTarget Date



What I want to do is plot the target dates and the counts of notifications that have that date. I tried your method but I can't even use the measure that I created as an input

HI @fingalbrad ,


If I understand you correctly, you want:

Slicer(get the value) -> [Target Date] (Use the value to create a measure) -> Use the measure as a bar chart's x-axis(This step does not work, x-axis only accepts entity columns as values.)
