# Time format

The** Format** option lets you select the time format of status duration:

HoursMinutes

Hours:Minutes

Minutes

Decimal Hours

**Minutes**

The usual format calculates the time in minutes.

**HoursMinutes**

A format is calculated and presented in the form **0h 0m**.

If the *Write and execute tests to ensure software functions correctly and meets specified requirements* issue in the Cycle Time calculation has a value of **95282m**, then it is **1588h 2m** in HoursMinutes format.

**Hours:Minutes**

The same as in the previous case, but without the letter designations following the numbers - **00:00**.

If the *Write and execute tests to ensure software functions correctly and meets specified requirements* issue in the Cycle Time calculation has a value of **95282m**, then it is **1588:02** in HoursMinutes format.

**Decimal Hours**

Decimal hours express time in a decimal format rather than the traditional hours, minutes, and seconds format. In this system, a day is divided into 24 hours, just like in the traditional system. However, each hour is divided into 100 decimal minutes, and each decimal minute is divided into 100 decimal seconds.

*For example, in decimal hours:*

**1 hour is equal to 1.00**

**30 minutes is equal to 0.50 (half of an hour)**

**15 minutes is equal to 0.25 (a quarter of an hour)**

**45 minutes is equal to 0.75 (three-quarters of an hour)**

This format is sometimes used in business and timekeeping for simplicity in calculations. It allows for easier addition and subtraction of time values, especially when dealing with fractions of an hour.

To convert **210h 22m** to decimal hours, you can use the following formula:

**Decimal Hours = Hours + (Minutes / 60)**

Decimal Hours = 210 + (22 / 60)

Decimal Hours = 210 + 0.36666 (rounded to four decimal places)

Decimal Hours ≈ 210.38

**So, 1588 hours 2 minutes equal 1,588.04 decimal hours.**
