## Challenge #225: How Long Has It Been?

Alteryx

A solution to last week’s challenge can be found hereThe App Interface

Time! Is it the fourth dimension, or a great unknown? A man-made concept or universal truth? Well we won't be solving those questions this week. Rather, we set our sights on describing the length of time between then and now!

For this week's challenge, create an app that calculates the time that has passed between a user-specified date and the present. The user should be able to select the units of time in which the results are displayed.

Oh man I just realized how many days I've been alive...

Why shouldn't you tell secrets around a clock?

Because time will tell

Pretty straight forward challenge.

Was expecting a more tougher challenge for 225th challenge.

Cheers and Happy Analyzing : )

Was considering creating many more fields, like the number of Dutch holidays and the number of workdays, but I have yet to find a complete list for this type of purpose so I kept it simple 🙂

Fun challenge problem. Not many people use analytic apps or the interface tools that often, so although this challenge was on the easier side (for me, at least), it will certainly be helpful for others.

Also this saved as a macro, but I think that's what this challenge was looking for.

Fun basic app! I only allowed one unit of time but might tweak it to allow multiple items to be selected. V2 is now updated after seeing the App Interface picture in the description.

Also, one suggestion would be to set a default date on the "Date" Interface tool

Replaced the Drop Down tool with a List Box to allow for multiple selections:
