Showing the average number of days taken to complete a task for all users


In my user table I have the usual “date created” and also a new date field “date completed” which I fill with the current date/time when a user completes a task.

I’m writing some reporting functions on this data but can’t figure out how to output the average number of days taken to complete since they started(“date completed”-“date created”) across all users. Any ideas?



Hi there, @richard16… if I understand your post correctly, I would likely have a separate field where I would store the number of days between the completed date and the created date, and I would populate that field when a task is completed. With that field in place, a simple average of the values in that field across all users should get you what you need.

Anyway, just food for thought, and I hope it helps.

thanks @mikeloc . I was really trying to avoid adding another field in the user table that had the number of days but yes that could work. I really wanted to be able to just calculate it in the “search for” statement when displaying but couldn’t figure it out though it has been a long day!

Like just about everything in Bubble, I’m sure there is more than one way to do it, and I’m guessing there is a way that doesn’t involve an extra field. That being said, I am never opposed to adding a field for something like what you are trying to do, as adding such a field will have just as many pros as cons, if there even are any of the latter.

Yes, you’re right and there are pretty much always multiple ways to achieve the same result. In the end, I went with your idea of just adding a new field to the user table as it was a quick and easy solution and it made the search code super simple :+1: :joy:
