  • This particular issue is caused by the Calculatioin Based on "Calendar Days" which should be configured as "Work Schedule" in certain Time Type (Admin Center - Manage Data - Time Type) 
  • Normally calendar day is set if the customer uses Leave of absence or full day sickness time types.


  • Once we chosse Calculation Based on Calendar Days system will be considering 24 hours as 1 day and if any user applis for leave with hour or minutes, it will calcuate the number by formular X hour / 24= Y Day.
  • And in this case, the X is 1, so the the result should be 1/24 = 0.04 Day, the reason why the system is still showing 1 calendar day instead of 0.04 day is that based on the system design it will show 1 calendar day either we only book 1 minute or 60 minutes.


  • Once we change the Calculation Based on "Work Schedule", it will resolve the issue and shoud be showing 0.125 day.
