Show Duration Based on Time Spent

I am using an Excel table that has a Time Spent column formatted as Custom h:mm:ss.    When I pull this into PowerBI, and I try to show the total duration using the Card visual, I get the following result.   It doesn't add up the total duration.   I saw a post to create a Custom Column and subtract a particular date (1899,12,31) to get the duration -- that didn't work either. PowerBI Example.PNGExcel Example.PNG

Hi  @Anonymous  ,

You can use measure.

The calculated column will not change according to the selection of the slicer.

1. Create measure.

SumTime_meausre =
VAR TotalSeconds =
    SUMX(
        'IT Productivity Measurements',
        HOUR( 'IT Productivity Measurements'[Time Spent] ) * 3600
            + MINUTE( 'IT Productivity Measurements'[Time Spent] ) * 60
            + SECOND( 'IT Productivity Measurements'[Time Spent] )
    )
VAR Days = TRUNC( TotalSeconds/3600/24)
VAR Hors = TRUNC( (TotalSeconds-Days*3600*24 )/3600 )
VAR Mins = TRUNC( MOD( TotalSeconds,3600 )/60 )
VAR Secs = MOD( TotalSeconds, 60 )
RETURN
IF(DAYS=0,"",IF(DAYS>1,DAYS&"days ",Days&"day"))&IF(Hors<10,"0"&Hors,Hors)&":"&IF(Mins<10,"0"&Mins,Mins)&":"&IF(Secs<10,"0"&Secs,Secs)

2. Result:

Hi  @Anonymous  ,

 

Which Total you are referring to has not changed, whether you add the all() function to your measure to exclude other groups, and judge whether the relationship between the table and the table is correct.

 

Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data. If it is really inconvenient, measure sharing is also possible.

Above is the Excel table and PowerBI chart.    The Total Duration box on the PBI chart does not change the Total Duration when I select one or multiple Technicians.   It always shows 2 days 03:32:00.   The previous example earlier in the post is the original.   I trimmed the content down for the purpose of sharing this data.

Hi  @Anonymous ,

Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Create meausre.

datediff = DATEDIFF(0,MAX('Table'[Time Spent]),SECOND)
sum =
SUMX(ALL('Table'),[datediff])

2. Result:

Hey @Anonymous ,

 

make sure the column you mention is in the format time:

selimovd_0-1621977717144.png

 

Then you can use the solution from that post to calculate the duration:

SumTime =
VAR TotalSeconds =
    SUMX(
        'Table Name',
        HOUR( 'Table Name'[Column] ) * 3600
            + MINUTE( 'Table Name'[Column] ) * 60
            + SECOND( 'Table Name'[Column] )
    )
VAR Days = TRUNC( TotalSeconds/3600/24)
VAR Hors = TRUNC( (TotalSeconds-Days*3600*24 )/3600 )
VAR Mins = TRUNC( MOD( TotalSeconds,3600 )/60 )
VAR Secs = MOD( TotalSeconds, 60 )
RETURN
IF(DAYS=0,"",IF(DAYS>1,DAYS&"days ",Days&"day"))&IF(Hors<10,"0"&Hors,Hors)&":"&IF(Mins<10,"0"&Mins,Mins)&":"&IF(Secs<10,"0"&Secs,Secs)

 

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍

Thank you both for the feedback.   I now have the following, which the totals don't change when selecting different technicians.
