Time entry Default Values

The Time entry default values are set in half hour increments.  Many professional service organizations record and bill time in increments of 6, 10 or 15 minutes. Modification to allow the user to set default increments of time would make the system more viable.  While the system accepts smaller increments of time during manual entry, it does not allow for import of time with values other than the current default values.

    I for one, would like to see a Time / Expense preferences that dictate time entry formatting. INCLUDING not a clock format.  if Project accounting uses 100 scale, then why force time card / activities to use 60 scale.  The feature should allow TIME INCREMENT setting that will dictate time entry/activity screen and mobile app.

    Even time keeping system I have worked with has the ability to dictate UOM of time.  At least the ability to only allow 15 minute increments on the quarter, half, three quarter hours.  I would extend it beyond that as many other professional firms have different increments.  I know some that do 1/10 of the hour or every 6 minutes.

    I have a professional company that only wanted decimal entry of time.  i.e.  2.2 is 2 hours 12 minutes.  Like many professional organization everything is in 6 minute increments.

    We had to do customization to provide for this.

    I would like to see our company be able to set the increments employees can bill in Time and Expense Preferences option. Our company bills our clients in :15 minute increments (or .25 hour). I have set in preferences the minimal billable time to :15 but we would like to actually  set it so they have to set their time in :15 increments (i.e. either :15, :30, 1:45, etc) but not change to 1:10 or 1:06.

    I would also be nice to set the preference as to whether its a :60 or 100 scale. We bill 1:1 equipment and labor so now employees are using :30 minutes for labor and .50 hour for equipment (equipment billed by the hour) which is confusing for everyone.  Esp at the :15 and :45 minute markers.
