Provision for decimal entry of time

Particular industries such as legal and actuarial require the entry of time to be in decimals i.e. 1 decimal place = 6 minutes.  To cater for this we need to be able to enter and display time as decimals (#0.0) rather than hours and minutes (h:mm).  It would be great if the system provided for the following options at a user and module level:

- time format

- round to x minutes

    Just wondering if you could not use the conversion factors to do this. But I support the idea.

    All payroll systems use decimals so it would make sense for timecards to be in decimals as well. This will avoid conversions having to be made and also prevent data entry errors.
