Hi, I just saw that the calculation of "total time" in the "Pie" option is not correct.
Any suggestions on how to fix that?
Best regards Verena

    Hi Verena,

    When you select “decimal duration” in Pie chart view, the durations are rounded to two decimal places. When the second decimal place would be a “0”, it is not displayed.
    The value for “total time” is calculated by first adding the durations of all timings. After that, the rounding is applied, which leads to the values in the attached screenshot.
    If the already rounded times from the pie slices were used for calculating the “total time” value, the rounding error would be higher.

    I hope this makes sense to you.

    Best regards,
    Niko

    Hi Niko,

    I see, so it's actually 0,70h! Thank you so much. That did indeed help a lot.
    I didn't even know I could select different types of time display. And even percentage! Great, I love it! Tanks for the quick and helpful reply! :)

    Beste regards,
    Verena
