# Looking for highest volume by a specific day as well as highest volume during a specific week

Hello,

I am trying to take the data below and generate which day of the week has the average/max/min on volume. I would also like to know the average/max/min by day of the week and week of the month. How would I go about doing this inside DOMO?

Essentially I would like to be able to answer the business question as follows: The 2nd week of the month on Wednesday's has the highest volume on average.

Thanks

I would create a bar chart.

X-axis would be a beastmode: DAYNAME(date)

3 beastmodes would be 3 bars:
1. MAX(volume)
2. MIN(volume)
3.AVG(volume)

I would also sort the bar chart using the following beastmode:
CASE WHEN DAYNAME(date) = 'Sunday' THEN 1
WHEN DAYNAME(date) = 'Monday' THEN 2
WHEN DAYNAME(date) = 'Tuesday' THEN 3
WHEN DAYNAME(date) = 'Wednesday' THEN 4
WHEN DAYNAME(date) = 'Thursday' THEN 5
WHEN DAYNAME(date) = 'Friday' THEN 6
ELSE 7 END

Final result:

As for week numbers within a month, I would think it would make more sense to look at weeks within the year which you could do using WEEK(date). For weeks within a month how do you define the week number? Is the first 7 day period always week #1? Is it whatever would be the first line on a calendar (there would be times where week 1 would be just 1 day).

If I solved your problem, please select "yes" above
