Clarity 15.9.1 : Do you think the timesheet should work like this?

    Hello,
    I don't want to be a pain but there is some choice that I don't understand.
    When you track your time in the timesheet, even in the decimal place is setting at 2 decimals, the end user is able to enter more than 2 decimals : why the system authorizes this ?

    When the user enters more than 2 decimals, the system round the value : ie you enter 2.999, the system displays 3.00 but inside the database it's 2.999 which is stored (conerted in ms) : do you think it's logical to display something and stored something else ?
    there is an impact when the timesheet is posted : If the ETC on the task is 3.00 and the user enters 2.999, the ETC is 0.001 not 0.000; the project manager will not be able to change the task's status to finish

    This should be very confused for our end users.

    Regards

    Awadhesh,

    For timesheets in classic there is a way to set the number of decimal places to 5.  I tested this and entered 12.34560 in my timesheet and upon Save it does display with the 5 decimal places.

    That setting is under Admin / Project Management / Timesheet Options.
    However in MUX the timesheet still rounds to 2 decimal places.

    Cost Plan same thing.  You can only set in MUX for 2 decimal places anywhere it appears.

    For financial information in classic there is an option under Admin / Finance Processing => Apply currency precision for rate/cost - where when unchecked you can see more decimals in the rate  matrix and other places.  Here in classic as well you can set the number of decimal places on the plan details.
