Gantt chart - Cannot Add a Duration

Hi,

 

I have a Gantt Chart all set up like a time line showing me hours in a day (duration unit set to minutes in general settings), using timestamp (date/time) as start and end.  Everything is working perfectly except I cannot add a duration.  When I try to add a data field to the duration in the visual menu nothing happens, it won't stick.

 

The duration is in minutes.  I've tried transforming it to a duration, tired a new calculated column (End-Start), tried converting that to minutes, hours, days.  Nothing seems to work!  Am I missing something?

I cannot enter Endtime and Duration field at the same time, try only enter column in to duration only.

Hi @pedanticpad ,

 

Please share some screenshots around what you are trying to do here.

It's hard to understand what you are trying to achieve using Gantt chart. Also, add some sample data so that we can try to replicate at our end.

 

Thanks,

Pragati

Sorry.  I thought I made sense when I wrote that.  See screenshot below, absolutely no field will populate in the Duration field.  No matter what I drag and drop it will not enter this field.  I though it something to do with my duration measure but no field at all will go into the Duration field in the settings.  Has anyone come accross this before?

Hi @pedanticpad ,

 

Refer following link to see what DURATION value is epected in this Gantt chart. It looks more like that you have to create a new column with CALENDAR duration.
