Calculated Metrics: Time on page for single page views

Hi there,

 

I've been trying to find an answer to this with no luck:

Google Analytics by default don't calculate the time from single page visits (i.e. Bounce rate). For the purposes of the project I'm working on, my priority is to know how much time people spend on a page, and at the moment I can only see the time spent from users who engaged with the content.

Is there a formula I could use through Calculated Metrics to achieve this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Similar to the solution proposed below, but showing you how to implement the code yourself can be found here:https://www.simoahava.com/analytics/track-content-engagement-part-2/
