Power BI Report Visual for duration

I'm struggling to create a power BI visual showing outages types with their respective durations against them.

This is one aspect of the data I'm looking to use and as you can see it's in 'time' format:


I assume for it to work properly on a visual it needs to be in 'duration' data type but it's throwing an error when I try and convert it from 'time' to 'duration' data type.


Any help or tips would be appreciated.

Durations are converted to a decimal (in days) when loaded. Best practice is to leave it as a decimal, do your measures, and then format it at the end. Please see this article for more detail and examples.

Thank you @amitchandak for the very quick response. I'm not sure this has answered my question. The root-cause of the problem is when I try and load duration and outage title to a Power BI Visual I get a 'count of duration outage' when I need duration displayed across the bottom as 'hh:mm:ss'.
