__How to change the calculation of TCMS from Minutes to Decimal__There are two different types of calculation that the TCMS software can be set to. The TCMS software can calculate anything after the decimal point in either

**Minutes**or

**Decimal**. The software is set to calculate in minutes when it is first installed.

To change the calculation from minutes to decimal, you will need to click on the

**System Settings**icon, and then double-click on

**Date/Hour Format**. Afterwards, you will see the two different calculation types which are “

**HH.HH**” and “

**HH.MM**”.

By default, “

**HH.MM**” is selected, which would display the calculation after the decimal point in

**minutes**. Under the

**“Example of hour**” displays an example of the time of your PC using the format that is selected.

If “

**HH.HH**” is selected, the software will calculate anything after the decimal point in

**Decimal**. This means it will calculate to the percent of an hour. In example, if the time displaying is 9:15AM, it will display the time as “9.25”.

Once you have selected the type of calculation that you would like, you will need to click on the

**Save**button. Once you have saved the setting, the calculation of all of the information on the software will reflect the calculation type that is selected.
