Visual for data having sequential events

Hello,

 

I have data with following structure -

primary_keytask_nametask_start_timetask_duration (hr)
123456purchasing10-03-2021 12:08:568
123456storing10-03-2021 20:08:5624

Based upon the data, I want to create a visual in Power BI that will give me the sequential information about the tasks. 

Requirement : Select a single "primary_key" in the slicer and you should see something like this -

Could you please suggest if there is any other way of showcasing this sequential flow of events in Power BI?

See if this works.

Create a measure for each step with the equivalent to the following:

Duration = 
SUM('Table'[task_duration (hr)])
Purchasing =
"Purchasing Duration" & UNICHAR ( 10 ) & "="
    & CALCULATE ( [Duration], 'Table'[task_name] = "Purchasing" ) & " hrs"

Create the visual by inserting the arrow shaped object under Insert / Shapes in the ribbon

Add a card visual overlaying each arrow with it's corresponding measure. Add the slicer and you get:

I've attached the sample PBIX file
