How to add time to an invoice line item
This article explains how FreeAgent displays time on an invoice when adding a line item as a number of hours. It also explains how to display time as a fraction on the invoice.
Please note that FreeAgent will always convert time entered as a fraction into hours and minutes if you select ‘hours’ as the quantity.
Adding time using a decimal point
If you enter the hours for the invoice line item using a decimal point, e.g. 1.5, this will be interpreted as an hour and a half and will show on the invoice as one hour and 30 minutes.
Adding time using a colon
If you enter the hours for the invoice line item using a colon, e.g. 1:50, this will be interpreted as hours and minutes and will show on the invoice as one hour and 50 minutes.
Displaying time as a fraction
Alternatively, if you would like the time to be displayed as a fraction for the invoice line item, e.g. 1.5 hours, select ‘-no unit-’ from the ‘Quantity’ drop-down menu when adding the line item. Any additional relevant information can be entered in the ‘Details’ box if necessary.
This will display the time as a fraction on the invoice.
