I am trying to find the best way to naturally display, in a list mode, the date difference between a "supposed start date" vs today date in natural language.
The output would be displayed only if the project is late.
I have a project with a delay that is:
- less than 13 days, the result should be expressed in days (possible display: 9 days late)
- between 14 days and 28 days, the result should be expressed in weeks (possible display: 2 weeks late)
- between 28 days and 365 days, the result should be expressed in months (possible display: 3 months late)
- more than 365 days, the result should be expressed in years by steps (possible display: more than a year late)
Is this the best way to display information?
Is it ok to give a macro picture instead of a detailed view right away? For example, displaying 2 weeks late instead of 2 weeks and 2 days.
Thanks for your help
