Rounding of time registrations (0:20 = 0,33)

Rounding of time registrations (0:20 = 0,33)

Are you wondering why your time registrations are sometimes rounded off?

It may be because you have chosen to track time in “normal” minutes (e.g. 1:30), while the database saves data in centi minutes (e.g. 1.5).

An example is when you track 20 minutes. When you enter it as 0:20, it is saved as 0.22 in the database:
1 hour is 3 x 0:20, and in the database it is 3 x 0.33 = 0.99.

A way to avoid this it to change your time registration from normal minutes to centi minutes. Your employees will have to make themselves familiar with 0.10 being six minutes and 0.15 9 minutes, and not 15 minutes. The advantage is that you enter hours and data is saved and showed in reports in the same format.

If you want to change your setup, you navigate to the System administration -> Time and expense tracking -> Time tracking setup.

Here you select if you want to track time in centi minutes or “normal” minutes.

If you use the TimeLog Tracker applications to track time, please be aware that they only track in normal minutes, and you may still experience rounding issues.
