You can do this with a formula tile and a group by tile. In your formula tile, create a column called TimePeriod and use the LAST_DAY() function to normalize your dates to a single day in each month so that you can group by month. Your formula would look like this:

```LAST_DAY(pickdate)
```

Add a group by tile and group by TimePeriod. Create an aggregated column for each plant and use the Add Formula to create the aggregation. For example, create an aggregated column called Seattle and have your formula look like this:

```COUNT(DISTINCT CASE WHEN `plant` = 'Seattle' THEN `picknumber` END)
```

Do this for each plant and you will have a distinct count for each location for each month.

Hope this helps.

instead of materializing this using a bunch of CASE statements consider just building a pivot table card in Analyzer.
