Hello,

I have the following sample data set. I have a timekeeper lookup table with status (approved, etc.) linked to this data. I am trying to find the earliest date that each person worked, so that I can determine when each timekeeper started billing and if they are brand-new (i.e. not on the approved list).

How can I write DAX formula to handle this?

Add the following Calculated Column to your table to flag the row with the start date of the person
=if(Table1[Work Date]=calculate(min(Table1[Work Date]),filter(table1,Table1[TK name]=Earlier(Table1[TK Name]))),"Start","")

This flag you can use in other columns or measures to crosscheck with your approval list
