## calculate average time consumption

Hi all,

Need some help for the following.

Below is a simple table.

My question is as follows: how can I calculate the AVERAGE of the TIME_TO_COMPLETE_1 values per day?

Thanks!

You can change the measure to be as follows:

``````AverageTimeConsumption =
VAR Days = INT ( AVERAGEX ( 'Table', 'Table'[time_to_complete_1] ) )
VAR HoursValue = ( AVERAGEX ( 'Table', 'Table'[time_to_complete_1] ) - Days ) * 24
VAR Hours = INT ( HoursValue )
VAR MinsValue = ( HoursValue - Hours ) * 60
VAR Mins = INT ( MinsValue )
VAR Seconds = ROUND ( ( MinsValue - Mins ) * 60, 0 )
RETURN
IF (
AVERAGEX ( 'Table', 'Table'[time_to_complete_1] ) <> BLANK (),
FORMAT ( Days, "00" ) & ":"
& FORMAT ( Hours, "00" ) & ":"
& FORMAT ( Mins, "00" ) & ":"
& FORMAT ( Seconds, "00" )
)``````

You need to use only a simple average formula if you have a calendar table.  Post Patron

I looked at your sample file, which is clear to me (I have a calender table).

Last question: the outcome of the measure is a decimal number, where I want to see TIME.

Any tip how to convert?

Thanks so far!

Hi john

firstly do you have a date table?  I can see you have a datetime field, if you wanting to calculate per day its probably best to create new column with only the date values not the time values.  You also need a date table, this is to manage the continuity of the date.  you would join the date table to your table.  You could then plot at a day level the average (time_to_complete)

if you share sample data it would be easy to do a mockup but you have only provided a picture which is not possible to import into an example, you would need to provide text.

If I took the time to answer your question and I came up with a solution, please mark my post as a solution and /or give kudos freely for the effort 🙂 Thank you!
