Best practices for using KEEPFILTERS in DAX

If you're working with KEEPFILTERS in DAX, it's important to follow best practices to ensure optimal performance and accuracy of your data analysis. In this video, you'll learn the best practices for using KEEPFILTERS in DAX.

By using KEEPFILTERS, you can maintain the existing filter context and create a new filter context based on additional filter criteria. This allows you to gain greater control over your data and visualize it in a more meaningful way.

However, there are certain best practices to keep in mind when using KEEPFILTERS. For instance, it is recommended to avoid using KEEPFILTERS in calculations that reference large tables or columns with a high number of distinct values, as this can negatively impact performance. It's also important to avoid using KEEPFILTERS in complex calculations that require multiple filters, as this may result in unexpected results.

Overall, if you follow the best practices outlined in this video, you can leverage the full potential of KEEPFILTERS in DAX and achieve more accurate and efficient data analysis.
