Hi @Bennasy23,

AFAIK, common charts will display the summarized values based on the current category(axis, legend). (For date/time type values, they can't able to be aggregated.)
Perhaps you can try to convert your duration to total second format then you can simply use them on chart value fields.

Hey @Bennasy23 ,

 

in general you can't sum values with the format time directly.

You have to do a workaround. For example to calculate everything in seconds, then you can sum them up. Then you have to change the display in hh:mm:ss with a DAX measure.

 

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 👍
