SPO Calculated column to work out SLA based on days and hours



I need to setup a Due Date calculated column on an SPO list and whilst I've managed to work out the formula for days, I cant quite work out hours?!

I have SLA priorities on my list as per the below:

5= 365 days

4= 5 days

3= 5 days

2= 1 day

1= 8 hours

You could use addDays() and addHours():

=IF(Priority="5", addDays(Created, 365), IF(Priority="4", addDays(Created, 5), IF(Priority="3", addDays(Created, 5), IF(Priority="2", addDays(Created,1),IF(Priority="1", addHours(Created,8))))))


Hope this helps,


Hi @BakerAlex ,


I am getting this error: 

The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported.




Sorry wrong formula:

=IF(Priority="5", DateAdd(Created, 365, Days), IF(Priority="4", DateAdd(Created, 5, Days), IF(Priority="3", DateAdd(Created, 5, Days), IF(Priority="2", DateAdd(Created,1, Days),IF(Priority="1", DateAdd(Created,8, Hours))))))


Hope this helps,


Hi @BakerAlex - still getting invalid syntax



Would you be able to share a screenshot of the flow?




Ah, maybe this is where I'm going wrong? 


I wanted to do this directly within a calculated column in SharePoint? This is where it is failing.



Ah. if it is only the hour calculation which is causing the issue, then try:

Created + 8/24


Hope this helps,
