Rolling timelines past AND future

Hello,

 

I would like to create a bar chart using 12 rolling months as the X-axis timeline. This is easy with relative date filters for either last 12 months or next 12 months. However, I'd like to show 6 past months AND 6 future months on the same graph. Is there a way or workaround how to do this?

Hi, @Anonymous 

According to your description, you want to show TODAY() on the bar chart as the basis for judgment, showing the values of the past 6 months and the next 6 months. Right?

Here are the steps you can follow:

(1)This is  my test data:

(2)We can click “New measure” to create a measure  used to override the Y axis:  “value”

value = CALCULATE( SUM('Table'[test]) , 'Table'[Date] < EOMONTH( TODAY() ,6)+1 && 'Table'[Date] >EOMONTH(TODAY(),-7)+1)

 

(3)We can put the [Date] in X axis of the bar chart (Keep the year and month) and we put the [value] measure in the Y axis:

If this method does not meet your needs, you can provide us with your special sample data and the desired output sample data in the form of tables, so that we can better help you solve the problem.

Ok, 

looks like this would work. However it looks quite complicated as I'd need to create new measures for each and every field I want to show on this 6+6 month time frame.

 

This give me an idea though. I could probably add a calculated true/false column in my date table telling if the date is in the desired range. Then I could use this new field as a filter on all the visuals.
