DAX formula as a Slicer


I’m looking to create two slicers relating to a DAX formula I’ve created.

  1. Creation Date: > 365 Days
    < 365 Days

  2. Years Inventory: Greater than 1
    Greater than 2
    Greater than 3
    Greater than 4

The below isn’t particularly important but would look better from a presentational purpose:

No Total Value for creation Date
No Total for Creation Days
No Total for First Movement Date when filtering by item

You can’t use measures directly in slicers but you can work around it by leveraging measures and a disconnected table. Generally, you’ll create a disconnected table that contains the values you want to use in the slicer. Then create a measure to harvest the selected value from the slicer. Then you need a filtering measure to apply the logic based on the slicer selection. Use the selected value to filter your data. Then you just use the values from the disconnected table in a slicer.

It can get complicated rather quickly, but you can use slicer functionality without modifying your existing data tables and filtering your data.
