how many days task took per specific month?


Maybe someone could help with formula preparation.

Example: I have a task that lasts for several months (06.02.2020- 18.04.2020). How to calculate a numbers how many days task took per specific month (separately for FEB, MAR, APR)?

    It depends on how detailed you want to make the calculation and what data is entered in your sheet. Are you just trying to count the partial months? For example, if the tasks starts on January 30th then it would have 2 days in January, 28 days in Feb, etc.

    Or, are you taking actual time and prorating it across the months the task was being worked on? ie. a task took 21 hours across 7 days, so 3 hours per day.

  • I need just this first, simplest calculation.
