KCS - How Does Time Rounding Work?

Objective:

  • Understanding Time Rounding
  • How Do The Decimals Work In Time Rounding
  • Time Entries
  • Minutes

Environment:

  • Clio Web App

Additional Information:

  • Minute Increment: Rounds up to the closest multiple of that number
  • Looking at time entries in a Quick Bill will show the raw data, this being the number you imputed. When you generate the Bill it will give you the correct rounded time

Procedure:

Time Rounding works two ways: Decimal Rounding, Time Rounding

Decimal Rounding: If you have a time entries that is worth 0.248 it will round it to 0.25h

Time Rounding: Minute Increment means whatever number you put in, that is the minute it will round to, in decimal form.

          Ex 1- Entering time at a minute: Your Minute Increment is set to 6 which is .10 of an hour. If your time entire is 5 minutes, it will round the hours to .10. If your time entry is 7 min, internally Clio will round that to 12min, this will show as .20.

          Ex 2- Entering time as a decimal: Your Minute Increment is set to 6. If your time entry is .75 min. Internally Clio will calculate that 45 min. Clio will then round that up to the closest multiple of 6, being 48 min. Clio will then calculate that back to a decimal, being .80.

 

TL:DR- Minute Increment of 6

.75= 45min

45min= 48min (being the closest number that is a multiple of 6)

48min=.80 (of an hour)
