DAX Patterns: Standard time-related calculations

These are in-depth video lectures of the Standard time-related calculations pattern.

This pattern shows how to compute time-related calculations, like year-to-date, same period last year, and percentage growth using a standard calendar and relying on standard built-in time intelligence DAX functions. The built-in functions are designed in such a way that they provide the correct result for the most common requirements.

In case your requirements cannot be fulfilled by the built-in functions, or if you have a non-standard calendar, then you should use another pattern. Check the Time-related calculations introduction to figure out what is the right pattern for your scenario.

    It would be advantageous if you spend little time explaining the functions used (just as a reminder).
