DAX for Power BI videos | DAX for Power BI Part 6.1 - Introduction to Time Intelligence Functions
Posted by Andrew Gould on 15 January 2022
This video shows you how to get started with time intelligence functions in DAX. You'll learn how to make Power BI create a date table for each date column in your data model automatically. You'll also learn what the auto date table contains and why it's important for the operation of the time intelligence functions. You'll see how to display different levels of a date hierarchy and how to use the DateAdd function to modify the filter context applied to a measure to compare a calculation with past and future dates. Finally, you'll learn how to use the SamePeriodLastYear function as a shorthand for a specific use of the DateAdd function.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
