Summarize and filter

I have a table contains the following columns in addition to many

 

The ActivityDate is used in a slicer

 

I need to calculate the disticntcount of Account names that have more than 1 activity subject to the selected period in ActivityDate slicer

 

Account NameActivityDate
Account A1/1/2020
Account A1/7/2020
Account A1/8/2020
Account A1/1/2021
Account B1/1/2019
Account B1/1/2020
Account B1/7/2020
Account C1/1/2018
Account C1/1/2020
Account C1/7/2020
Account C1/9/2020
Account C1/10/2020
Account D1/1/2020

 

Mainly I tried the following

 

 

SUMMARIZE(
            Activities,
            Activities[Account Name],
            "ActivitiesCount",COUNTA(KinzActivities[Account Name]
        )

but I didn't know how to filter the resulted table according to the calculated column "ActivitiesCount"

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

Yourmeasurename =
CALCULATE
(
DISTINCTCOUNT(Activities[Account Name]),
REMOVEFILTERS(Activities[Account Name])
)
 
How it works:-
When you create report by Activities[Account Date] and Activities[Account Name]
then Power BI applies default filters to each row.
 
The CALCULATE and REMOVEFILTERS commands remove the default Activities[Account Name] filter,
but retain the default Activities[Account Date] filter.
 
Thus returning an answer of 4 activies for 01/01/2000  and 3 for 01/07/2020
 

Actually I dont see how it will work! 

I need to calculate the accounts that have more than 1 activity within the a selectedperiod

If I selected 2020 year, it should return 3 not 4
