Calculating time since a new thing was created

I’ve been at this for a while, scrolling through Forum post and playing around with different methods, none of which have worked. I’m not sure how to make a text element display how long in hours and minutes since a new thing was created. I essentially want to make it display “1 hour 5 minutes” for example. I feel like this is very simple to do, but I can’t figure out how to make it work. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi @HarryB,

Download the plugin “relative time” and add the element into the page. On the element, you can specify the date it should relate to. Then, on a text element, you’ll make the dynamic text be equal to “Relative Time A’s value”. If you’re unsure how to do this, we have a tutorial for this at
