I have had several people confused with the correct way to enter minutes when using My Ministry. I would like to explain how to do it and why I chose this way.
In order to keep My Ministry simple and easy to use, I decided against tracking actual minutes and went with whole and partial hours. This makes tracking time simple and fast. The majority of the publishers I asked tracked at 1/4 hours or 15 minute intervals. Therefore that is how it adds the time. 3/4 of an hour is 45 mintes. So to enter 3/4 of an hour, you need to use that decimal representation of it which is .75.
15 minutes = 1/4 of an hour = .25
30 minutes = 1/2 of an hour = .50
45 minutes = 3/4 of an hour = .75
Therefore, if you have worked 3 hours and 15 minutes, you’d need to enter 3.25 which represents 3 & 1/4 HOURS
If you want to track at a more granular minute level, then you’d need to figure out what your minutes represents as a portion of an hour. For example 40 minutes would be 2/3 of an hour or approximately .66.
I hope this helps explain how to correctly enter time in My Ministry.
