Filter Multiple Scorecards using one date slicer

Hi everyone,

 

I'm creating an attendance tracker that counts how many people did 5 courses. Each course contains the completion date.

 

I used a slicer to filter by year (i input the 5 dates in the field and assigned as 'Date Hierarchy').

 

Filter 2021, Course 3 scorecard count is BLANK (but there are participants who  completed course 3 in 2021???)

Filter 2018, Course 1 scorecard counts correctly (counts the dates from 2018), Course 3 counts the 2021 date.

Crosschecking with the Excel sheet, It seems like that the Course 2-5 scorecards count the dates IF they completed Course 1.

 

How do I make the other scorecards rigid and not dependent on Course 1?

for example, when I filter 2021, it would only show the people who completed Course 1-5 in 2021.

 

Thank you!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Sure, let me explain clearly.

 

1. Go to Power Query Editor and UnPivot all columns.

And you will get this:

2. Close and Apply.

 

3. Create a calculated table and create relationship between the Dates table and the fact table.

Dates = CALENDARAUTO()

4. Then you can use the Date column from Dates table. And the Date hierarchy is generated automatically based on this option:

Hi everyone,

 

I'm creating an attendance tracker that counts how many people did 4 courses. Each course contains the completion date.

 

I used a slicer to filter by year (i input the 4 dates in the field and assigned as 'Date Hierarchy').

 

Filter 2021, Course 3 scorecard count is BLANK (but there are participants who  completed course 3 in 2021???)

Filter 2018, Course 1 scorecard counts correctly (counts the dates from 2018), Course 3 counts the 2021 date.

Crosschecking with the Excel sheet, It seems like that the Course 2-5 scorecards count the dates IF they completed Course 1.

 

How do I make the other scorecards rigid and not dependent on Course 1?

for example,  when I filter 2021, it should only show the people who completed Course 1-4 in 2021.

 

Here's the data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kCwPFTp-VdcSIMuU8hfx2W09ntP3rXgf3_kJjjUe-FI/edit?usp=sharing

Empty cells means they havent attended the courses.

I did not do any Measure or Relationships. Just a simple right click of the field values and 'Count'.

 

Let me know how I can improve further!

Please go through the follow link based on relative slicer

This is a sample Power Bi

EM_17_20_4-1621760575459.png

 

If I filter 2021, C3 is blank (it's not suppose to be coz people completed C3 in 2021)

Sample Data:

EM_17_20_0-1621761069786.png

 

As you can see, there are 2021 dates in C3 but did not reflect on scorecard. The count depends on the C1 date.

I cannot understand how you have created the measure and built relationships. Not enough information on the file to identify the problem. 
Save a copy of the file removing confidential data, save it in google drive or one drove then share the link here.

Hi @Icey ,

 

Could you please walk me through how you get  the results?

Like how you got the "Dates"? Did you combine the 4 Courses? How?
