Yes! Time on Page measures the time a user spends on each pageview. This allows you to create search criteria around the total time users spend on a page or build metrics that analyze the average, median, min or max time users spend on a page. Additionally, you can measure a user's active or inactive time on a page.
The example below shows how to search for users who spent longer than 10 seconds on the Home page.
1) What is the difference between Time on Page Active and Time on Page inactive?
Check out What makes a user active vs inactive to differentiate between the two properties.
2) Is there a way to distinguish between active and inactive time spent on a page?
Yes - you can measure the total time, total active time, and total inactive time on a page.
3) Using a Metric, can I calculate the average, median, minimum, or maximum time users spend on a page?
Yes - you can easily create a Visited Page event metric to measure things like the median time spent on a specific page.
4) Can I calculate a metric for the average time on a page for all visits to a specific URL?
No - Time on Page metrics only work along with Visited Page events, not Visited URL events. However, you can use the Time on Page property as an event modifier for a Visited URL. For example, you could search for all sessions where a user visited a specific URL, when their time on the URL was greater than 30 seconds.

5) Can I easily see the median time on page for all of my pages?
Yes - create a metric measuring the median time on page for visits to any page and then group by page.
