QlikSense Default Month Filter

In QlikSense

I am using this expression which gives me last month cumalitive sum.

Aggr(Rangesum(above(TOTAL(SUM ({<Month = {$(=Month( AddMonths(Today(),-1)) )} , [MonthYear] =,  WeekDay=>} [Net Load])), 0, RowNo())), (Year, (NUMERIC)), (Day, (NUMERIC)))

How can I alter this so when someone opens the app it shows the previous month data but when they apply filter for Month, it give the totals for that selected month.

Thanks in advance

Re: QlikSense Default Month Filter

What about something like this?

if(GetSelectedCount(Month)=0,

     Aggr(Rangesum(above(TOTAL(SUM ({<Month = {$(=Month( AddMonths(Today(),-1)) )} , [MonthYear] =, 

     WeekDay=>} [Net Load])), 0, RowNo())), (Year, (NUMERIC)), (Day, (NUMERIC))),

     Aggr(Rangesum(above(TOTAL(SUM ({<[MonthYear] =, WeekDay=>} [Net Load])), 0, RowNo())), (Year, (NUMERIC)),

     (Day, (NUMERIC)))

)

It will use the last month calculation when the user doesn't have any month selected, but if they select one or more months, it will use those instead.

If it was in QlikView, I would have two expressions and use GetSelectedCount() calculations as conditions to enable each function when necessary.  As far as I can tell (I don't have experience with QlikSense), you don't have the ability to do the same thing in Sense (please let me know if I'm incorrect here).

Re: QlikSense Default Month Filter

and you are write, there isn't a way to add another expression to the same chart, unless you want to add it as an alternative expression.
