Activity Duration as a % of Total Time

8 - Cloud Apps
8 - Cloud Apps

I have a dataset with 3 columns:


ActivityType StartDate  EndDate

I’m attempting to build a visual that will report on what % of time is spent on which activity vs another, but I need to consider that not as a percent of all activities, but of all the possible time (assume there will be a time filter). My users want to report on how much of the day had nothing recorded

so I may be wrong, but I created a custom table of every day since 2023:






Then I tried to build a visual, that does a Timespent/TotalTime calculation… to do this I did Sum(Mndiff (enddate, startdate)) / Sum(minddiff (maxdate, minddate))

but I get this error:


Then i've tried using the timestamp... but sitll get this:








10 - ETL
10 - ETL

@liamcameron take a look at this Excel screen shot. In the example there is 1 record for green. The difference between the start and end date is 3. Then on your new date table you created (which is filterable by the user) the difference between the selection is 10 days. My understanding is that you want to show 3 / 10 = 30% of the selected time spent on green. Is that correct?
