Hi all, I would like to organise the dates for each user based on their ID. I would like to start the beginning date for "Day1" for each user and then count the dates accordingly. Once the dates are assigned to the single user then for the next user the starting date should be counted as "Day1 and so on.
For example if user ID: 1024 has the first date as '04-02-2020' it should be counted as day1 for him and if the next date is 07-02-2020', 4th day and so on. Once the count for the particular user is finished then the count should reset for the next user as Day1, Day5 etc.
In addition I also would like to compute weekly average based on days (for example 3 days in a week 3/7, 6 days in a week 6/7 etc).
Any help in this regard is highly appreciated. The sample data is available below:
Ganesh, very likey this is straight-forward using timetables and retime, but your descriptiopn is not clear. Please describe exactly what you expect to end up with, with a short example. Both things. Are you just looking for the number of days for each ID?
If it's just counting number of days for each ID, try this:
>> counts = varfun(@length,tt,"GroupingVariables","ID","OutputFormat","table")
