  • PDF template-issue (Duration display in seconds instead of hours

    The meetings entity has meeting 'startdate' and 'enddate' fields, and the duration of meeting is calculated and stored in the 'duration' field.

    I created a PDF template to export the meeting details into a pdf file, and everything worked perfectly except the duration.
    Duration is displayed in hours gets exported to seconds in the PDF file, I have attached the screenshot.

    {{duration}} is fetching 3,600
    {{duration_RAW}} is fetching 3600

    How is possible to display the duration in hours instead of seconds?

    Thanks in Advance

    Hi cdmindya,
    1. Go to Administration > Entity Manager > Meeting > Fields and create a field with the Varchar type (screenshot 1);
    2. Go to Administration > Entity Manager > Meeting > Formula and create a formula (screenshot 2);
      Code:
      myDuration = duration/3600;
    3. Go to ​Administration >PDF Templates and insert a new placeholder {{myDuration}}​ into your template screenshot 3);
    4. Go to Administration > Layout Manager > Meetings > Detail (screenshot 4)​​
    It is very important: for you to succeed, you need to recalculate the formula in the old records before Print to PDF, or simply change anything in this record. For new meetings, everything will work immediately.

      Thanks, victor yes that is very much possible by creating a new field and using calculation this can be achieved but is there a way or I am missing something to display the 'Duration'.

        Duration is calculated in seconds and I showed you the easiest way to convert seconds to hours (in my opinion). Perhaps someone will recommend an even simpler option, but for now you have a working option for your template.

      Hi @victor,

      I could resolve this time conversion issue without creating a new variable, below the screenshot,
      I changed the "TIMESTAMPDIFF_SECOND" to "TIMESTAMPDIFF_HOUR" now the difference itself is displayed in Hours.

      Just thought to share, this may not be a good practice to do, and can lead to other related functions being affected.

        It's not good to modify the existing field. You'd rather create a separate field called durationHours.

      Sorry off-topic but your PDF look beautiful. Can you share the code/template?
