Hi Dan,

Please note that this can only be done in views and not in forms.
For views right click on the view header and select "Format Fields...". In the popup window, select Actual Duration on the left and choose the desired format on the right. A format including the number of days should be available.

You can change the display format in forms also. See attachment.

You are correct, but that is for custom fields. As far as I now, you can't do that for actual duration.

Hi,
SP17 - I also tried using Calculated field:
Calculated duration 1
equal to Actual duration
with format d h m
and that also did not put the correct display on the form I only got format:
Hours Minutes
