    It depends on if you have a set policy for tracking time. Many companies have 1/4 minimums so you're in the .25 world. We're an 1/8 of an hour company ourselves. That's why you see three decimal places with the task timer.

    Here's a cheat sheet for 1/8 hour equivalents:

    60 minutes = 1.0
    52.5 minutes = 0.875
    45 minutes = 0.75
    37.5 minutes = 0.625
    30 minutes = 0.5
    22.5 minutes = 0.375
    15 minutes = 0.25
    7.5 minutes = 0.125

    Do you know of a handy converter that one could use for this? Perhaps a Mac widget? Thanks.

    If you are using the timers in Intervals when applying the time there is a "round up" option. This will keep the applied time in the formatting above.

    Regarding widgets, a Mac and PC widget are in the short-term roadmap. We are looking forward to opening up Intervals more for usage without having to be logged into the web interface.


    You can enter time in clock format now when manually adding time and the add time dialogue will convert the time for you. Here are a few examples:

    :22 (0.367 hrs)
    1:22 (1.367 hrs)
    1:22:30 (1.375 hrs)
