The dilemma is that workers typically like to see their timecards showing total hours worked as hours and minutes (it's a lot easier to understand 50 minutes than .83 hours), but decimal hours are usually required for payroll processing. The good news is that your Virtual TimeClock software will perform all of these calculations for you based on a single configuration setting.
- From the Reports menu, choose Report Writer.
- The Timecard Detail report should already be selected for you.
- Click the Format tab.
- In the Time Display section you can choose how to display total hours worked.
