Query regarding time intelligence function







% of previous quarter

For each quarter, what percentage the total quantity sold constitutes of the same figure for the previous quarter.


YTD % of all previous year

For each time period, the cumulative year-to-date figure divided by total quantity sold for the whole of the previous year.


3-month moving average

The average of the total quantity sold for the previous 3 months.


In the first figure, this is the table I need to work on in Power BI. I am already given this table.

In the above table, I need to create three measures whose names are given as mentioned. I did the second measure perfectly but I am facing problem in creating first and third measure. Anyone plz help with this and kindly tell me what DAX formula I should use so that I can create these measures. Your help will be highly appreciated.


Thank u in advance.

@SushainKoul , with help from the date table and time intelligence


QTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESQTD(('Date'[Date])))
Last QTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESQTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,QUARTER)))


Last Year same QTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESQTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-4,QUARTER)))


YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD('Date'[Date],"12/31"))
Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year),"12/31"))


Rolling 3 = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX('Date'[Date]),-3,MONTH))
Rolling 3 before 3 = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAXX('Date',dateadd('Date'[Date],-3,month)),-3,MONTH))


You can take diff


Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

Sir, In all the expressions where u have mentioned DATESADD function its showing some sort of error as I had also tried using DATESADD but didn't get the desired result. 


Here is the output sir.
