Average Time in Status



I have an applicant workflow and would like to measure how long a candidate has spent in which status (per job and average across all jobs). I have the following table:

Job Req IDApplication IDApplication StatusApplication Status CategoryCreated Date (Timestamp)Is Current StatusSkipped Status
3003842388666Personal AssessmentASSESSMENT22.05.2023 06:21 Skipped by user
3003842388666Cultural fit assessmentASSESSMENT22.05.2023 06:21 Skipped by user

Skipped by user


If the status is "Skipped by user", the applicant was not in this status, if it is "not skipped", the applicant was in this status. For the case shown, I would want to know how long the applicant was in the status "Default" and "Manager Review". If "CLOSED", then I do not need any time.


I would be very grateful if anyone can help.


Kind regards

Hi @checkner ,


Could you please tell me what's the expected results according your sample data provided?

And this is the Power Query forum, You want a solution in Power Query, not a solution for DAX in Power BI Destkop, right?


Best Regards,

Hi @v-stephen-msft

I would like to evaluate for each workflow step how long the candidates spent on average in which status, then break this down for each position. At the end, I would like to display the average value (per step) in my recruiting dashboard as a card and/or diagram. 


I am therefore not sure whether Power Query or PowerBI Desktop is the right solution.
