Scenario:
When user submits a request for partial day off, it throws an error message Only Whole Hours are allowed in the Start Date Hours Field. Please remove the decimal.

 

 

Cause:
This is most likely to happen because the Minimum amount of time Off booking required in bookings is set to Full Hour in System Preferences.  This setting makes sure that, only whole hours are accepted in the hours field and decimal values are not allowed.

Solution:

  • Log on to Web TimeSheet as an administrator.
  • Click on the Administration tab in the top menu.
  • Click on System Preferences.
  • Select Minimum amount of time Off booking required in bookings as None.
  • Save the settings.

Note:
Setting Minimum amount of time Off booking required in bookings to None is a global setting which will allow all users to book time Off even less than a hour.
