I have a spreadsheet where I've calculated the time to send out a form via a formula, if(sum(b2-a2)>0, sum(b2-a2), 0).  

Can I use this calculated field in a Pivot Table where I can ave these times?

Did you try creating a PivotTable and encounter trouble? It ought to work even if one of the columns gets its values from a formula.

I also suggest you consider this formula as an alternative to your IF & SUM formula:
=MAX(0,B2-A2)
