Date function to add minutes

Hello,

I have a specific requirement with Date and Time. I need to display Event Start Date Time (This is avaialble in SQL server database) and Event Seating Time in Power BI Report.  Event Seating Time is should be a derrrived (calculation) measure in the report layer. The logical formula is, Event Seating Time= (Event Start Date Time - 30 minutes ). I am trying to create a measure with DATEADD function, but not able to add/ subtract minute. 

 

Please help me if any one came across this scenario. 

 

 

 

Thanks,

Mani

Dear @jaymanivannan,

 

Yes, we can add minute. You can try step by step:

  1. Click "Edit Query" in the Home Tab
  2. Choose the table you want to addMins
  3. Leave Home tab, click Add column tab
  4. Click button "Custom colum" (see the picture below)
  5. "New column name" = Event Seating Time
  6. "Custom column formular":  [Event Start Date Time] - #duration(0,0,30,0)
  7. Click "Close & Apply" in Home Tab. Check your result (in my sample picture is +30 mins).

 

Regards,

Hi @jaymanivannan

 

You might be able to use the TIME function to help.

 

The following code starts with 1st Jan, 2017, then adds 10 hours, 1 min, 1 second, then adds a further 1 minute to that.

 

Measure = DATE(2017,1,1) + TIME(10,1,1) + TIME(0,1,0)
