• What is the Time Reporting Interval?

    Use the Time Reporting Style to set the minimum billable unit. So if you bill in units of quarter hours, set the Interval to 15 minutes. If you bill in tenths of an hour, set it to 6 minutes. Any number of minutes that evenly divide an hour are possible.

    Technically speaking, the Time Reporting Interval defines the step size of the grid imposed by the Time Reporting Style. It does not determine the origin of the grid, or where the grid points sit, only the distance between them.

    Like other Time Reporting options, the Interval has no effect on what time is actually recorded in the internal database, only how it is reported on the timecard. You can change the Interval after the fact and see how it affects billable hours, but the exact values are always retained.

  • What are the Interval Max and Min Time Reporting Styles?

    Like Interval Round, Interval Max and Min report the exact IN time and filter the OUT time to report on a grid whose origin is the IN time with grid steps set by the Interval. However, while Interval Round reports the nearest grid point for the OUT time, Interval Max reports the next largest grid point, like a ceiling operation, while Interval Min reports the next smallest grid point, like a floor or truncate operation. So if you want to bill the whole interval as soon as it starts, you choose Interval Max. If you want to bill the interval only once the whole interval has elapsed, you choose Interval Min. Choose Interval Round to split the difference and bill an interval once it is half over.

  • What is the Interval Round Time Reporting Style?

    Interval Round is a Time Reporting Style that forces the OUT time, as reported on the time card, to sit on the closest grid point of a grid whose origin is the IN time. The size of the grid steps is controlled by the Time Reporting Interval. Use this style to force the interval durations to be uniform.

    Put another way, the IN time is reported exactly as recorded, while the OUT time is rounded to force the duration of the entry to be in units of the Time Reporting Interval. For example, with an Interval of 15 minutes, if you clock in at 8:02, your possible OUT times are 8:17, 8:32, 8:47, etc. So if you actually clock out at 8:14, your OUT time will report as 8:17 for a total interval of 15 minutes. Again, the exact IN and OUT times are maintained internally.

  • What is the Punch Round Time Reporting Style?

    Punch round reporting is a Time Reporting Style that forces all IN and OUT times, as reported on the time card, to sit on the closest grid point of a grid whose origin is the top of the hour. The size of the grid steps is controlled by the Time Reporting Interval. You use this reporting style to force all of your IN and OUT times to appear uniform.

    For example, with Punch Round using an Interval of 15 minutes, all IN and OUT times will be reported as being at the closest of zero, 15, 30 or 45 minutes after the hour. So in this case, an IN time of 8:02 will report as 8:00, while an OUT time of 8:13 will report as 8:15. But remember, the exact IN and OUT times are always kept internally.

  • What is the Exact Time Reporting Style?

    As the name implies, with Exact reporting, IN and OUT times are reported exactly as they are recorded in the database.

  • What is the Time Reporting Style?

    The Time Reporting Style dictates whether and how IN and OUT times are snapped to a grid when reporting on the Time Card. The grid step size, if used, is controlled by the Time Reporting Interval. There are five reporting styles: Exact, Punch Round, Interval Round, Interval Max, and Interval Min.

  • What is Time Reporting?

    Time Reporting controls how Entries present themselves to you on the Time Card. Changes to time Reporting affect only what is reported, not what is stored in the internal database.

    Specifically, Time Reporting is a collection of per project configuration options that filter IN and OUT times as they are displayed on the time card. These options have no effect on how data is recorded in the database. Exact IN and OUT times are always recorded. Changing the Time Reporting options may affect the total hours reported on your timecard, but changes are non-destructive. You can experiment with different settings to see how it affects billable hours, but you can always go back by simply reverting the configuration to its previous state.

  • Why do I need to enter a Start Date or Pay Period?

    This information is used to determine how the data is displayed in the time card view.  Each time card shows the hours spent for a particular pay period, and you may move among the time cards by tapping the arrows near the top of the time card.  The size and start dates of the pay periods are determined by the Start Date and Pay Period project configuration, where periods start at regular intervals, sized according to Pay Period, and starting at Start Date.

  • Can I enter rates in currencies other than dollars?

    The app currently only supports rates in US dollars. We plan to support other currencies in the future.
