# Aggregate Vs Non Aggregate - Cannot Mix aggregate and non-aggregate arguments with this function?

So the idea is that I am trying to calculate Turn around time for our Service Desk Tickets. I first calculated Date Opened - Date Closed with the following Function ---> DATEDIFF('day',[Created Date],[Closed Date],'monday'), I then wanted to to find the Average with the AVG function.

Now I am trying to do an if function -- The idea is if the priority is identified as High Medium or  Low there are specific criteria's  for each of them, which I try to show here.  and I get the "Cannot Mix aggregate and non-aggregate arguments with this function"

Any other way to do the following?

If AVG([Test])>2 AND[Priority]="High" THEN "bad"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test]) <= 2 AND [Priority]="High" THEN "good"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])>5 AND [Priority]="Medium" THEN "bad"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])<=5 AND [Priority]="Medium" THEN "good"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])>7 AND [Priority]="Low" THEN "bad"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])<=7 AND [Priority]="Low" THEN "good"

ELSE "null"

END

Hi

Once one of the fitled in a formula is aggregated then all fields need to aggregated - AVG is an Aggregate so you need to wrap Priority in an aggregating expression like Min(), Max() or Attr() in all cases

If AVG([Test])>2 AND   attr([Priority]  ) ="High" THEN "bad"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test]) <= 2 AND attr([Priority]  )="High" THEN "good"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])>5 AND attr([Priority]  )="Medium" THEN "bad"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])<=5 AND attr([Priority]  )="Medium" THEN "good"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])>7 AND attr([Priority]  )="Low" THEN "bad"

ELSEIF  AVG([Test])<=7 AND attr([Priority]  )="Low" THEN "good"

ELSE "null"

END
