Prior Month's Sales -



I am using a couple of different measures to calculate the previous month's total sales  (not the last 30 days, but the actual previous calendar month).   So in this case, today is Sept 30 I want all of August.  


Both of these work.   But they require that I have a filter visual set to the current month.   Which means I have to remember to change it each month.   Is there a more dynamic way to do this that automatically adjusts?   


Last Month Shipped = CALCULATE([Total Shipped Value], PREVIOUSMONTH(Dates[Date]))
PriorMTD Orders = CALCULATE([Total Orders]

I think these are the best option. To make your date selection dynamic. Put that to filter pane and use Advance or relative date
