## Calculating an average of a filtered sharepoint list

Hello everyone,

i would like to get statistic values of a sharepont list.

We organize suggestions for improvement of our employees and i would like to know what is the average duration between submit date and enddate of a suggestion. This average shall only consider suggestions that were submitted in a defined period of time.

To clarify what i mean i show a table:

 SuggestionID SubmitDate Enddate 1 01.05.2022 20.05.2022 2 01.06.2022 10.06.2022 3 01.01.2023 10.01.2023

For example evaluationperiod is 01.01.2022 to 31.12.2022

- Suggestion ID3 will not be considered.

- For ID1 the processing time is 20 days, for ID2 it is 10 days.

- So the average for 2022 is 15 days.

How do i put this into a formula?

Jürgen

Firstly the formula posted by @Drrickryp is correct if placed in a Label on the screen, but your translation to your values is missing the field to average - it should be

Average(
BVW_Vorschlag;
"Duration";
DateDiff(
VorschlagsDatum;
Abschlussdatum
)
),
Duration
)

If you want a specific period, add a couple of Date Pickers

Average(
Filter(
BVW_Vorschlag;
SubmitDate >=SubmitDatePicker.SelectedDate &&
EndDate <= EndDatePicker.SelectedDate
);
"Duration";
DateDiff(
VorschlagsDatum;
Abschlussdatum
)
),
Duration
)
