Time-entry rounding is another aspect of timekeeping that system admins can customize. You can use entry rounding to tailor to and match the way you bill. Learn about how to use and adjust this setting for your firm.
Selecting an Entry-Rounding Option
From the timesheet settings area, use the down arrow on the Entry Rounding picklist to reveal options for time-entry rounding. The default setting is rounding by the quarter hour—or the nearest fifteen minutes.
To apply your selection, make sure to click the UPDATE TIMESHEET FORMAT button at the top left of the setup page.
TIP: Turning Off Entry Rounding
There is an option to turn off time rounding from the Entry Rounding drop-down menu.
When rounding is turned off, the system will still support 4-digit precision, meaning that time entered as “1.5556” will be converted to “1.56.” Keep in mind that careful attention should be placed on the way that this data interacts with billing rates to ensure there are no problems when issuing invoices.

When it is saved to the timesheet, entry rounding will take effect, as pictured below.
