Sum data based on date range

Hi

Im trying to create a column chart which displays the number of tasks per month that have a shipping date relevant to that month.

I have 1 table called tasks. In tasks i have task name and task finish date. I cant get it to sum the values, in pic u can see it puts the months next to each other Also i have specific dates for each finish date, so i have in power bi changed these values to be a month field.. i dont need cumulative i just need to show how many projects have finish dates in that month for specific tasks.

 

thanks in advance 🙂

Have you tried to create a calculated column based on the specific date and create a column chart based on the shipping month.

 

shipping month = DATE(YEAR(Task[ShippingDate]),MONTH(Task[ShippingDate]),1)

shipping month = DATE(YEAR(Task[ShippingDate]),MONTH(Task[ShippingDate]),1)

 

thankyou - i was able to add a grouping to the date on x axis- which allowed me to create a bin which i selected per month (voila!!)

@Nikki

So isn't adding a grouping work for you now? If not, could you be more specific? I don't get too much idea from the original post.
