How to add a custom Format
How to set the Format for Time-Tracking Metrics
For Time-Tracking Metrics (e.g., Average Time To Close Deal, Average Session Duration), you can use the default "Duration" option or enter a custom format option to display the time-tracking data.
The default Duration Format will display [days]:[hours]:[minutes]:[seconds]. If the metric 'length of time' value is large enough, this is the format that will be displayed on the Datablock.
By entering a custom format, you can decide about the format you would like to display on the Datablock for the Time-Tracking Metric. For example, if you don't want to display seconds for Average Time to Close Deal since such granular reporting is not in your interest, you can leave them out by setting up a custom format.
To set this, open Advanced Settings and click the Format drop-down. Select + New Custom Format and enter P[dd]:[hh]:[mm], where [dd] = days, [hh] = hours, and [mm] = minutes.
If you would only like to see one unit of time (i.e., only hours), you can set the format as P[hh].
Click Save to save the custom format and new settings.
