Answer:
Decimal Time Rounding

You are able to set Time Rounding options in Clio, which allows you to customize how Clio calculates your time entries.  In order for the Time Entry to show the correct amount, it needs to be round up to the nearest two decimal places.


For example, The time entry below shows an entry with a Qty. of 1.31, but the calculation is not done with the rounded Quantity instead it takes the actual quantity that has not been rounded 1.035556, this can be seen when hovering over the entry and trying to edit the number.  In order for the correct total to appear on the invoice with the rounded amount,  decimal time rounding needs to be enabled.
