cumulative time

I'd like to import time (hours, mintues and seconds) into Power BI, but I get an error; Expression.Error: We couldn't parse the input provided as a Time value.

 

The times are in the following format 1:02:15 (1 hour, 2 miutes 15 seconds)

I do not wan't to interpret the times as times of the day, but rather as just time spent, and I would like to sume those times.

This does not seem to be an easy task in Power BI? Everything I try fails,...

Re: cumulative time

Hi @joku,

 

The Duration data type is not supported in Power BI data mode currently. Here is a similar idea about support for "duration" data type, shared on Power BI Ideas. You can vote it up and add your comments there to improve Power BI on this feature. Smiley Happy 

 

Regards
