You can turn the time rounding feature on or off from your Company Settings screen, located under the Admin Menu.
You can choose to not round time at all, round time to the nearest five minutes, or round time to the nearest fifteen minutes.
There are a few things to note about how the feature works.
- The feature uses a concept called "nearest rounding". So it will round to the nearest fifteen minute increment (i.e. :00, :15, :30, :45). 50% and up rounds up and 49% and down rounds down.
- We use a "zero rule" that says any rounding that will create a time segment equal to zero will not occur. For example, if any employee clocks in for only five minutes from :01 to :06, and you have the fifteen minute rounding rule turned on, then the time will NOT be rounded since both times would be rounded down to :00 resulting in a time segment equal to zero.
- When an administrator makes an edit to a time, it will not be rounded and the exact time entered will be used. Also, any time added by an administrator using "Add Time" will not be rounded.
- The feature is non-destructive to the original exact (to the minute) time data, and acts as a filter for display and reporting purposes. So you can turn it on or off at any time to restore the original non-rounded times.
Turning the feature on or off at any moment in time will cause all times both in the future and past to be displayed per the chosen setting. 😃
