All data transformation step is done with 1 virtual table, using the DAX language. Our fact table is transformed here

If you are new to DAX this might look scary, but it's not that tricky. Our fact table is cross-joined to create a period concept. This makes it very easy for you as a Power BI developer to build a visualization showing the compliance percentage development over time - regardless of the specific locations' compliance percentage was actually modified in the time period.
