## Calculation Time Duration Within Specific Time Period

Hi Power Automate Community,

I need help to build a flow that will determine each sharepoint item time duration,
Given the start timing is the sharepoint item creation date and end timing is current time.
However, the Time Duration calculation must within specific time period as below:

 Day Time Period Start Time Period End Monday 8:00 AM 9:00 PM Tuesday 11:00 AM 9:00 PM Wednesday 3:00 PM 9:00 PM Thursday 10:00 AM 9:00 PM Friday 8:00 AM 9:00 PM Saturday N/A N/A Sunday N/A N/A

For Example, if the sharepoint item creation date is dated Tuesday (30 May 2023) at 9 AM and current time is Friday (2 June 2023) at 11 AM.

The Time Duration calculation should be like below:

Tue Duration = 9.00 PM - 11.00 AM
Wed Duration = 9.00 PM - 3.00 PM
Thu Duration = 9.00 PM - 10.00 AM
Fri Duration = 11 AM - 8.00 AM

Total Duration = Tue Duration + Wed Duration + Thu Duration + Fri Duration

Duration needs to be calculated in hours or days ?

Also does date is not considered while calculating duration ?

Frequent Visitor

Hi @Nived_Nambiar ,

The Duration will be in hours, and date is not considered actually, just the day as need to check the exact time period for different days

Super User

Give a try with this expression to compute duration (in hours)

div(mul(sub(ticks(utcnow()),ticks(
items('Apply_to_each')?['Created']
)),100),3600000000000)

Hope this helps !

The expression given can calculate the duration between current time and start time only,

but I need the duration to comply below table time period.
For the timing outside of this table, will not calculated in the duration

 Day Time Period Start Time Period End Monday 8:00 AM 9:00 PM Tuesday 11:00 AM 9:00 PM Wednesday 3:00 PM 9:00 PM Thursday 10:00 AM 9:00 PM Friday 8:00 AM 9:00 PM Saturday N/A N/A Sunday N/A N/A
