# Calculate Hours between two date fields?

Hi Monday community. I am in need of assistance, I have two date columns with time associated to them. I am using these because I can get a calendar.

My challenge is, I am trying to calculate the hours between these two fields. Simply, it is a scheduling item. I want to have my users login and select a time slot that they can work, and it keeps track of their total time. But I cannot for the life of me figure out a formula that helps me calculate the time between these two fields.

We have been partnered with monday.com since 2017.

Without seeing your board/columns, the formula you seek to calculate the time is available!

We have done a number of of time calculations on various scenarios.

If you would like to have an optimisation session with upstream please do not hesitate to email me.

This way we can take a look at your concerns more in depth and provide you with the best solution to make your workflow more powerful in monday.com

I look forward to hearing from you.

I am inclined to schedule a quick connect regarding our goal.

I am CST time. Please advise a couple days / times if you would.

Corey.

Iâ€™m sure Cleopatra will be able to take care of your needs.

For everyone else that may be interested in how to calculate the hours between two date columns with (or without) times:

``````DAYS({End},{Start}) * 24
``````

This is not exactly intuitive because the function used is, literally â€śDAYSâ€ť. But, the result returned when times are attached includes the fractional difference as well. So, simply multiplying by 24 give you hours.
