## Create shift from time

Hi,

I´ve been trying to figure this out. So basically I want to create a new table named "Shift" with only two values: Shift 1 and Shift 2.

Shift 1 goes from 07:30 to 19:30 and Shift 2 goes from 19:30 to 07:30. These shifts are for all days of the week.

Days of the week are seen as numbers, not text. This is how it looks:

Do you guys have any idea how to do it?

Hi @ReyDeSirenas  in DAX this is simple to achieve as dates and times work similar to numbers, and you can perform greater than / less than comparisons easily.

This expression as a calculated column (ie, not measure) in the same table as the time element should work.

`Shift = "Shift " & If('Days and hours'[Time] >= time(7,30,0) && 'Days and hours'[Time] < time(19,30,0), 1,2)`

Result:
