    More about the time formats

    Sets the format for time entries in QuickBooks:

    • Decimal: When you select this format, QuickBooks automatically interprets time entries as decimal fractions. For example, when you enter 4:30, QuickBooks converts your entry to 4.5 (4 and one-half hours).

    • Minutes: When you select this format, QuickBooks automatically interprets time entries as hours and minutes. For example, when you enter 4.5, QuickBooks converts your entry to 4:30 (4 hours and 30 minutes).

  4. Click the OK button.

Note: This selection determines the format for all time entries in QuickBooks, so be careful when making changes.
