How to count number of visits depending on hour visitor arrived.

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to do a count from a time column where i add up the number of visitors that arrived during a specified time period.


For example I want to capture the number of visits between 07:00 - 14:59, 15:00 - 22:50 and 23:00 - 06:59 however I can't use the countif formula like I can in excel.  Does anyone know how I would accomplish this in PowerBI?  

 

Thanks for any help.  I've been stuck on this for a few days now..

hour range = 
var x = hour(yourtable[yourdatetimecolumn])
return if(x >= 7 && x < 15, "07am-15pm", if(x >= 15 && x <= 23, "15pm-23pm", "00am-07am"))

add a new column something like below to get hour range and use this new column on x axis on your chart:

 

hour range = 
var x = hour(yourtable[yourdatetimecolumn])
return if(x > 7 && x < 15, "07am-15pm", if(x >= 15 && x <= 23, "15pm-23pm", "00am-07am"))

That's fantastic!!  Thank you so much!!  Is there any way to set it to 06:59 so I'm not capturing any entry at 07:00 twice ?

You could also use the 'groups' feature.

 

If you right click a text field and select 'New Group' you'll be able to select how the various text values are grouped.

 

However if you do the same with a numeric field, you can set up 'bins' which can be set to intervals, or automatically calculated intervals based on the number of bins you want. This works for time periods too.

 

Since you want your 8-hour bins to be offset from midnight, you might need to start with auto-calculated 1-hour bins, then manually group THOSE BINS, with 00:00-01:00 to 06:00-07:00 as well as 23:00-00:00 being in the same group, and splitting the rest between two other groups.

 

You should end up with 3 groups of 8 bins each - hope that's not too confusing! I would have added screenshots but not sure how to...
