Hello @gumgih,

 

For instant calculation you need to Click Recalculate Button for the Record to get it populated instantly. Because its job will run every night to update to calculate the Rollup Fields.

 

 

But I tired from my end unfortunately its working fine from my end.

Hi @gumgih ,

 

there is a concept of Rollup fields that will allow you to total child entity records into a parent record so I would utilize this if I had a User as the parent of the timesheet records and I wanted to total the actual hours on the child timesheet record.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customerengagement/on-premises/customize/define-rollup-... 

 

Now, overall this has always been a pretty "limiting" capability for me as I usually want to see the total hours by week, month, by subject, by user, etc.

 

You can do some of this if you created Charts related to the table where you can visually see the total actual and academic hours by subject (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customerengagement/on-premises/basics/start-your-day-da...) - I now this is discussing Dynamics 365 but same approach for Dataverse...

 

Another option is Excel Templates that you can create and load in the system and access from the Timesheet view.  You can create summed tabs, pivot tables, charts, etc. based on the Timesheet data and every time you access this template it is the current data.  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/analyze-your-data-with-excel-templates 

 

The best method to really accomplish what you are looking to do is to utilize Power BI and connect to the source being Dataverse and you can really do whatever you want from there.  Much more capability to sum / count / slide and dice as you need.

 

I know this is not a direct answer to your original question but a table in the Dataverse with these summed values is not really possible.

 

Hope this helps.  Please Accept if answers your question or Like if helps in any way.

 

Thanks,


Drew

Hi @gumgih ,

That is the exact issue I was mentioning with Rollups. It is not going to let you do this...

This can be achieved by using power automate. New entity needs to be created, replicate table schema same as parent entity.

 

Please find below actions w.r.t power automate.

1. Trigger when new rows gets added to parent entity dataverse table.

2. list rows for parent entity, filter rows with name so we get list of records for that name.

3. list rows for new entity, filter rows with name and set row count to 1

4. compose action to get first record from step 3

5. initialize variable for hours

6. apply to each for step 2 list rows, inside apply to each add two steps for adding the hour values

    6.1. compose action add hours variable and current item total hours
    6.2. set hours variable to compose action output

7. add condition to get length of list rows for new entity, if it is greater than 1 update the record or else create.

 

Added few screenshots of power automate actions and also end result of records in table for your reference. Test 3s is parent entity and test 4s is replica of test 3s entity.
