Show average values on a chart with fixed X axis

I have the following dataset:

The dataset shows 3 different personIds and..:

- when they received their first letter (FirstLetterReceivedDate)

- when they received each letter (LetterReceivedDate)

- when they should stop receiving letters (LetterStopDate)

 

What i want to do:

Problem 1)

With a slicer filter that uses FirstLetterReceivedDate, I want to show on a line chart the average number of letters received per personId since FirstLetterReceivedDate. The line chart's X axis should be fixed to 4 years, so it looks something like this:

msuser48_0-1669632050033.png

Example:

If i set the date slicer to dates between for example 01-01-2015 and 01-12-2018, we know that..:

- PersonId 1 received 2 letters in year 0-1 after their FirstLetterReceivedDate, and 2 letters from year 0-2.

- PersonId 2 received 4 letters in year 0-1 after their FirstLetterReceivedDate, and 5 letters from year 0-2.

- PersonId 3 received 6 letters in year 0-1 after their FirstLetterReceivedDate, and 8 letters from year 0-2.

 

So, the average for year 0-1 is 4 letters, and the average for year 0-2 is 5 letters. year 3 would be 0 letters.

 

Problem 2):

If the date period selected from the slicer is only 1 year (for example 2016-01-01 to 2017-01-01), then the line chart should should drill down on months 0-12 instead of years 1-4.

 

How to accomplish this complexity?

@msuser48 , You can create an new column like this and use

 

Year Diff =
var _diff = datediff( [FirstLetterReceivedDate],[LetterReceived],month)/12
return
Switch(True(),
_diff <=1, " 0- 1",
_diff <=2, " 1- 2",
_diff <=3, " 3- 4",
"GT 3"
)
