Detecting Overlapping Contracts with List.Dates() in Power BI
The business rule is simple; a client’s new contract should always begin the day after the previous contract ends. Everybody gets it, but the world is also a busy place where well intentioned people still make mistakes. People extend contracts without pushing out the following contract and people set contracts to start and end on the same day. Creating visibility around this often involves cumbersome Excel reports by hand, eating up valuable analyst time. In this video I’m going to show you how to build an automated report which can surface these problems as quick as they show up. In the process you’ll learn about structured values and see the different ways grouping can wrestle down tricky data problems.
