I am very new to Database work and Power BI. I have been tasked with creating a report that will calculate our daily hours for inservice ambulances and create a chart to compare it to our budgeted hours. I connected this very large database and built out a formula that looks at every shift start Date/Time and Stop Date/Time. I used the subtraction tool and then converted duration to a number. This all works. When I try to bring this into a chart and use the date Hierarchy to include year, quarter, month, day the averaging will not work. It bring it down to shift level. Is there a way to tally all the shifts in a day to compare it? Thank you for helping this Rookie.
In our database for me to calculate the number of hours each unit worked I must pull their start and end time for the shift. I do this for each ambulance in the CAD. After computing the hours and minutes for each unit placed in the CAD that day, I need to total daily hours. then average it weekly, monthly, quarterly. I have success averaging quarterly and monthly but when I try to go down to the day, using the date hierarchy, it goes all the way down to the individual shift average.
In order to better understand your demands and give the right solution, could you please provide some more specific information? such as your desensitized example data and a screenshot of your desired results?
