CountRows If using Distinct on a different column

Hi All,

 

I'm currently trying to count rows between a certain date and only once per person from a SharePoint list.

I have it working for counting between the dates :

CountRows((Filter(WorkFromHome,Value(Text('DateUsed',"[$-en-US]yyyymmdd"))>=Value(Text(DateAdd(Today(),-30),"[$-en-US]yyyy-mm-dd")))))

 

I also have one working with only rows with a unique name:

 

CountRows(Distinct(WorkFromHome.Name,Name))

 

I know I need to combine the two somehow but I'm Stuck after a few hours. 

 

Any help at all would be much appreciated !

 

Thanks!

Re: CountRows If using Distinct on a different column

My idea is to 1st collect the Distinct Names and then make a 2nd collection where we add a column to show the count.

 

ClearCollect(
    myUniqueNames,
    Distinct(WorkFromHome.Name,Name) // produces a single column called Result
);
ClearCollect(
    myCountByName,
    AddColumns(
        myUniqueNames,
        "myCount",
        CountRows(
            Filter(
                WorkFromHome,
                Name = myUniqueNames[@Result],
                Value(Text('DateUsed',"[$-en-US]yyyymmdd"))>=Value(Text(DateAdd(Today(),-30),"[$-en-US]yyyy-mm-dd"))
        )
    )
);

 

This was the key piece of code added to the 2nd collection

 

Name = myUniqueNames[@Result]

@DarylMcC 

Its just a syntax error.  Please change this line...

\\ produces a single column called Result

 

...into this code.

// produces a single column called Result

@mdevaney 

Still not working, it seems like there's an issue with the name of the collection, do i need to put it into the "OnStart" of the app maybe?

@DarylMcC 

Suggest you try to get this small part working first.  Then add the 2nd part.

ClearCollect(
    myUniqueNames,
    Distinct(WorkFromHome.Name,Name)
);

 

(Also, I can't see part of the text on your screen because the error message is in the way, lol)
