Linear trend chart using baseline data

Hi,

 

I have tasks defined by projects at start of the year and month on month actuals will be added. Need to plot a chart to actuals in one line and another one linear trend till start of the next year (i.e Jan'25). Attached data and out snapshot for reference

The liner line needs to be configured. it could be of 6% or 8%. The measure should work on Project filter as well when applied.

Hi  @manojk_pbi ,

I created some data:

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create calculated table.

Table 2 =
var _date=
SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[Month],"mindate",MINX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Month]=EARLIER('Table'[Month])),[Date]))
return
ADDCOLUMNS(
    _date,"rank",RANKX(_date,[mindate],,ASC))

2. Select [Month] – Column tools – Sort by column – [rank].

3. Create measure.

value =
var _index=MINX(ALL('Table 2'),'Table 2'[rank])
var _month=MINX(FILTER(ALL('Table 2'),'Table 2'[rank]=_index),[Month])
var _value=
SUMX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Month]=_month),[Tasks])
RETURN
IF(
    MAX('Table 2'[rank])= _index,_value,
    _value-
_value * (MAX('Table 2'[rank])-1) * 0.008)

4. Result:
