How can I make a YTD average?
Hello,
I am looking to get a YTD calc but I cannot use the YEARTODATE function because I need an average, not a SUM.
And previous years should calculate according to their months (i.e. I would see a full 12 month avg for 2023, 5 month average for 2024).
My initial thought is to use TIMESUM but am having trouble setting it up.
Appreciate any help.

@DeepakK Can be done but depends on what the basis of the average is. For example, you are looking for the YTD average of sales. I would have the following line items / formula
In Sales Transaction module
Line Item
Formula
Sales Counter
1
Sales Value
<This is data ingested>
Period
<Calculated Week Time Period>
In module where you are doing your YEARTODATE function
Line Item
Formula
Sales Value
Sales Transaction.Sales Value[SUM:Sales Transaction.Period]
Sales Counter
Sales Transaction.Sales Counter[SUM:Sales Transaction.Period]
YTD Sales Value
YEARTODATE(Sales Value)
YTD Sales Counter
YEARTODATE(Sales Counter)
YTD Sales Average
YTD Sales Value / YTD Sales Counter
