Switch between two date options based on Filter

I have read many different versions of this question, this one here nearly gets what I want: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Filter-records-between-two-date-columns-with-one-slicer/m-p...

 

I want to create a filter based on two options shipped date and order date

If the user selects shipped date, I want all the results based on sshipped date, if the user selects order date then I want the results based on this date. How do I do this? 

 

I have read a lot, but can't find this?  Please help

Hi @Sam7 ,

I updated my sample pbix file(see attachment), please check whether that is what you want.

1. Create a date type dimension table by Enter data method

2. Create a date dimension table and apply the date field on the slicer

Date = CALENDAR(DATE(2022,1,1),DATE(2022,12,31))

3. Update the formula of measure [qty] and [ssales]

Hi @Sam7 ,

I created a sample pbix file(see attachment) for you, please check whether that is what you want.

1. Create two date dimension table base on the fact table

Note: Do not create any relationship between these two date dimension tables and fact table

2. Apply the date field in above tables on the slicers

3. Create the measures to get the values during the selected date periods

qty = 
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table'[quantity] ),
    FILTER (
        'Table',
        IF (
            ISFILTERED ( 'Shipped date'[date] ),
            'Table'[shipped date] >= MIN ( 'Shipped date'[Date] )
                && 'Table'[shipped date] <= MAX ( 'Shipped date'[Date] ),
            1 = 1
        )
            && IF (
                ISFILTERED ( 'Order date'[Date] ),
                'Table'[order date] >= MIN ( 'Order date'[Date] )
                    && 'Table'[order date] <= MAX ( 'Order date'[Date] ),
                1 = 1
            )
    )
)

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.

After much internet sluething, this is the one that finally solved the issue for me. Of course in my use-case, I didn't need to show the summed column so I just put it in a visual filter and said give me rows that are "not blank"

 This didn't work as I want the fields to have a slicer, and then the actual date to be the next filter selected. How do I this?

@Sam7 , You can create an active inactive relationship and create two measure and switch those using measure slicer

 

example

Order =calculate( SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),USERELATIONSHIP ('Sales'[order date], 'Date'[Date])

 

Ship = calculate( SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),USERELATIONSHIP ('Sales'[shipped Date], 'Date'[Date])

 

For measure slicer use field parameters
