Calculate Average time

Hi, how to calculate average time by "PlaformEntityName" ? 

 

I've got 3 calculated column which are:

 

 
Duration_Max = CALCULATE( MAX(dm_pageview_company[Date]) , 
                          FILTER( dm_pageview_company , 
                                  dm_pageview_company[SessionId] =  EARLIER(dm_pageview_company[SessionId]) 
                                ) 
                            )
 
 
 
Duration_Min = CALCULATE( MIN(dm_pageview_company[Date]) , 
                          FILTER( dm_pageview_company , 
                                  dm_pageview_company[SessionId] =  EARLIER(dm_pageview_company[SessionId]) 
                                ) 
                            )
                        
 
 
Duration_Calc = [Duration_Max] - [Duration_Min]

 

 

I've got a tab like that and would like to get the average session time by 'PlaformEntityName' which are a Text field with client's name:

Re: Calculate Average time

Hi @SRK_23

Yeah, it's correct. That's the same. I said earlier that the measure shows the result in minutes

2,37 minutes is 2 mins and 22 seconds, 2:22

Re: Calculate Average time

Hi @SRK_23

 

I'm not sure I fully understand what you need but wouldn't the following be sufficient?

 

1. Set PlatfomEntityName in the rows of a matrix visual 

2. Set in values of the matrix a measure similar to:

          AverageSessionTime = AVERAGE(Table1[Duration_Calc])

Re: Calculate Average time

Hi @SRK_23,

 

What about converting your calculated column Duration_Calc to be seconds and then calculate the average?

 

You could convert the calculated column Duration_Calc to be seconds with the formula below.

 

seconds =
HOUR ( 'dm_pageview_company'[Duration_Calc] ) * 360
    + MINUTE ( 'dm_pageview_company'[Duration_Calc] ) * 60
    + SECOND ( 'dm_pageview_company'[Duration_Calc] )

Measure = AVERAGE(dm_pageview_company[seconds])

After you calculate the average of the sceonds, you could convert the seconds to the hh:mm:ss format with the formula below.

 

average_hhmmss=
INT ( 'dm_pageview_company'[Measure] / 3600 )
    & ":"
    & RIGHT (
        "0"
            & INT (
                (
                    'dm_pageview_company'[Measure]
                        - INT ( 'dm_pageview_company'[Measure] / 3600 )
                            * 3600
                )
                    / 60
            ),
        2
    )
    & ":"
    & RIGHT ( "0" & MOD ( 'dm_pageview_company'[Measure], 3600 ), 2 )

Re: Calculate Average time

Hi @SRK_23

I see that @v-piga-msft might have already given you a solution but since I'd already had a look at your file, I'll post mine too. Just in case it can be of help.

With the table structure and the columns that you currently have, I would place PlatformEntityName (and potentially SessionId under it, if you need it) and place the below measure in values. It will give you the average duration in minutes. You can change to Mins-Secs format from that if needed.

 

AverageSessionTime =
AVERAGEX (
    VALUES ( dm_pageview_company[Duration_Calc] );
    dm_pageview_company[Duration_Calc]
)  
   *24*60

Re: Calculate Average time

Should I tipe the code like this in a measure ? Because the measure is not recognized and it doesn't work. Sorry i'm quite new with those calculations.

Re: Calculate Average time

Hi @AlB , I did your calculation here and the average seems wrong, or maybe I don't understand something. In the example attached, we have a session length at 2 minutes 22 secondes, and the average on the session is 2.37 in your calculation; the average should be 2:22 as well (as we focuse on only one session). Do you know what I mean ?

Re: Calculate Average time

Hi @SRK_23

If you wanted the result in the format Mins:secs instead, you could do something like:

 

AverageSessionTime_Mins_Secs = 
VAR __AverageSessionTime= 
AVERAGEX (
    VALUES ( dm_pageview_company[Duration_Calc] );
    dm_pageview_company[Duration_Calc]
)
RETURN
MINUTE(__AverageSessionTime) & ":" & SECOND(__AverageSessionTime)
