Rounding time to next quarter hour

Post by JSpaniel » Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:01 pm

I found this as a very old requirement, to round the time do the next quarter hour:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=482&p=1005&hilit=rounding#p1005

We have also this requirement. But it seems this feature is not yet available. It would be great, if for each customer there can be a setting, if and how the times are rounded (no rounding, rounding to 10 minutes (until 4 down, above 5 up, rounding to next 10 minutes, rounding to quarter hours, rounding to next quarter hour).

Have you tried the Work units plugin?

Ok, this is helpful. I just tested it. In reports I can see now the Work Units. But the costs are still calculated based on the duration on exact minutes. Then it should be possible to calculate the costs based on units.

Work Units plugin and reports need to be further customized to include work unit cost. Probably as a separate, optional column.

I opened a fundraiser for this feature at https://www.anuko.com/store/buy.htm?id=211

Additional refactoring is also required for reports to keep complexity under control.

We do everything on 15 min increments at our company. I don't know if it will help you, but I implemented with time dropdowns for our personnel viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1300&p=4722#p3035.

Thank you Chris. Well, for us it is important to know the accurate time. But billing is done on quarter hours. Since we generate the invoices not with Time Tracker, we use the work units from the Time Tracker report for our invoices.

We use TT for our timeclock for our employees and import the data daily/weekly for payroll. Our employees were already documenting time in at :00, :15, :30, or :45 on the hour...so this worked for us. I don't know of a way to round...If it was Excel I could help!
