Incorporate a default measure to calculate the dwell between any two activities

Currently, there is no built-in/default measure that allows the user to create a dashboard to present the average dwell between any two activities in the process dataset. This is a very powerful use case, with numerous benefits in terms of being able to test hypotheses about suspected high dwell between specific stages in the overall process journey.

There is an excellent post by Ravi on the ARIS Community ( about how to achieve the same through the use of variables, parameters, a calculated field created in Code Editor and input components, but ideally this would be available as a single default measure for the user to easily select without having to manually create the calculated field and its associated dependencies.
