I have a client that reports activity duration in "Units" using hours. Is there a way to configure Civi to use hours? Or, would that require a custom field?
When recording a new activity, the duration field indicates "minutes", but this is just a label within the form itself - activity reports will provide you with the duration column, but without indication of whether you are talking about minutes or hours, so this leaves you with two options:
- (preferred) if you know your way into the code of the record activity form, it would be a simple question of changing the label, OR
- if you feel confident with replacing all instances of the word "minutes" with "hours", you can use Administer > Customize Data and Screens > Word Replacement TIP: using "exact match" also refers to capitalization, so you will need to enter the word "minutes" in lower case in order for any change to take effect. If you want to switch the replacement back from hours to minutes, you will need to enter a new set of words for replacement (disabling a word replacement won't undo what you've already replaced, but it will prevent future replacements).
Hope this helps, Tamar
