 # App for time tracking

Hello,

I have a timesheet app and i am wondering if i can limit the input on the minutes to be ending by 0s or 5s. What I mean is that instead of an employée saying he started at 08:02 I want that it is limited to 08:00 or 08:05. I already disabled the seconds. Thanks in advance

hello i tried to apply this formula in my app but i get an error parameter 1 of function minute is of the wring type. From what i see it is the format of my column but i do not understand where i am wrong.

You won’t be able to us ethat perfectly… it’s for a duration column… you will need to ADAPT it to fit your needs.

@LeventK Can you help out, I haven;t done this in awhile!

Assuming that your column type is TIME, try with this expression:

``````IF(
MOD(MINUTE([TIME] - "00:00:00"),5) = 0,[TIME],
IF(
(CEILING(MINUTE([TIME] - "00:00:00") / 5) * 5) + 5 = 60,
TIME(HOUR([TIME] - "00:00:00") + 1 & ":00"),
TIME(HOUR([TIME] - "00:00:00") & ":" & ((CEILING(MINUTE([TIME] - "00:00:00") / 5) * 5) + 5))
)
)
``````

You can also implement and use the above expression as an initial value of your TIME column:

``````IF(
MOD(MINUTE(TIMENOW() - "00:00:00"),5) = 0,[TIME],
IF(
(CEILING(MINUTE(TIMENOW() - "00:00:00") / 5) * 5) + 5 = 60,
TIME(HOUR(TIMENOW() - "00:00:00") + 1 & ":00"),
TIME(HOUR(TIMENOW() - "00:00:00") & ":" & ((CEILING(MINUTE(TIMENOW() - "00:00:00") / 5) * 5) + 5))
)
)
``````

it is not working. The formula is accepted but i think the problem is here : i replaced your column time by my column witch means begging but the app thinks of the “00:00:00” as 12/30/1899 12:00:00 AM.

IF this condition is true:
…(MOD(
…MINUTE(
…(The value of column ‘Debut’ - “12/30/1899 12:00:00 AM”)
…5)) is equal to (0)
THEN use the value of:
…The value of column ‘Debut’
ELSE use the value of:
…IF this condition is true:
…(((CEILING(
…(MINUTE(
…(The value of column ‘Debut’ - “12/30/1899 12:00:00 AM”) / 5) * 5 + 5) is equal to (60)
…THEN use the value of:
…TIME(
…The concatenation of all these text values (
…(HOUR(
…(The value of column ‘Debut’ - “12/30/1899 12:00:00 AM”) + 1
…":00")
…ELSE use the value of:
…TIME(
…The concatenation of all these text values (
…HOUR(
…(The value of column ‘Debut’ - “12/30/1899 12:00:00 AM”)
…":"
…((CEILING(
…(MINUTE(
…(The value of column ‘Debut’ - “12/30/1899 12:00:00 AM”) / 5) * 5 + 5)
