# How to set custom ticks? - Scatterplot Graph

I’m trying to make custom ticks to get values in mm:ss but I’m not sure how to do it… Any hints would be appreciated!
EDIT: Also I coundn’t get anything from here to work.

``````document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {
function convertToMMSS(originalSeconds) {
let minutes = Math.floor(originalSeconds / 60);
let seconds = originalSeconds % 60;
let date = new Date();
date.setMinutes(minutes);
date.setSeconds(seconds);
let formatTime = d3.timeFormat("%M:%S");
let mmss = formatTime(date);
let parseTime = d3.timeParse("%M:%S");
return parseTime(mmss);
}

function formatDate(originalSeconds) {
let minutes = Math.floor(originalSeconds / 60);
let seconds = originalSeconds % 60;
let time = minutes + ":" + seconds;
return time;
}
