I need help with a concept - making a calculation of order backlog value for every day in the date calendar to highlight seasonal or long-term trends in order backlog value.
Each order in my sales database has a created date and a shipped date and of course the order is in backlog between these dates. So where do i put the calculated field that would show for every day in the DateCalendar the sum of orders in backlog on that day?
I feel this should be a very simple thing to solve but somehow can't wrap my head around the necessary logic and where the DAX calculation should "reside".
Thanks & Regards,
Seems to me that every order with a created date but no shipped date is to be summed, which should be doable to setup. If you can upload a sample file we can check what needs to done.
That would only give the backlog for today and only for orders that haven't shipped.
What I am trying to achieve is a view of the backlog evolving over time (or how quickly are we getting orders out the door) so I need to calculate the backlog value for every date in my date calendar (2017 to 2023), with the filter criteria being sum the order $ values if the Date calendar date falls between the order created date and the order shipped date.
Hope this clarifies my goal,
I've partially solved it. I put this calculated column in my Date Calendar:
I would gladly try to help, but there is no sample file I can work with.
Thank you for your offer Anders but the data is confidential so I would have to create a synthetic replica for you to look at. I've partially solved the problem with the calculation mentioned above, so I will leave it there and cogitate on improvements.
