Is there any way to estimate the document read time in SP Document library Tile view using JSON formatting.

Any help would be appreciated.

This is not possible using JSON formatting capabilities of SharePoint online.


  1. Use column formatting to customize SharePoint
  2. Use view formatting to customize SharePoint

Per my research, you are unable to estimate the document read time using JSON formatting.


In addition, there is an OOB feature called Inside look, which provides a peek into documents with an estimated time to read the document and the author’s key points. enter image description here

Note:This feature is available exclusively on Word documents written in English.
