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.
Students have access to a private discussion area where they can interact with the instructors asking questions related to the lectures and the exercises.

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