In Strobbo, you can also round time registration in various ways.

These rounding rules are applied for employees who register their times with the Strobbo time clock.

As an admin, you can set rounding in Strobbo as follows:

## The different types of time rounding explained

You can round the following times:

**Clock-in rounding**: round at the start of work time/when clocking in**Clock- out rounding**: round when working hours end/when clocking out**Clock-in rounding break**: round when the break starts**Clock-out rounding break**: round at the end of the breakYou can select how the times are rounded

**Round down**:We round down for the number of minutes set.

*Example: if you set a rounding down of 15 minutes when clocking in, and your employee clocks in at 11h51, his time will be rounded down to 11h45. The time is rounded to the previous quarter hour.***Attention**! This can cause late Dimona declarations since you are indicating a Dimona in the past.

**Round up:**We round up for the number of minutes set.

*Example: If you then set a rounding up of 30 minutes when clocking in, and he clocks in at 11h46 his time will be rounded up to 12h00. The time is rounded to the next half hour.*

**Rounding nearest:**We round up to the minutes set

**and**closest.

*Example: For clocking out, we have set a rounding of 5 minutes to the nearest. This means that if that person finishes work at 18h02, we make it 18h00. If that same person finishes one minute later at 18h03, we make it 18h05. The time is rounded to the nearest five minutes.*

**No rounding**: the times will remain the same, no rounding will happen.

You can choose the number of minutes between 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 or 60.

Rounding off the break works exactly the same.

## Two extra rounding possibilities when clocking in

There are two extra possibilities, besides the ones summed above:

### Option 1: Round to planned work time

Rounding to the planned start time is applied if clocking in earlier, otherwise the default rounding will be applied.

Example: when locking in at 07h15 but not scheduled until 08h00, the working time will start at 08h00.

**Attention: if you work with ‘Rounding to planned work time’ and use Strobbo for your Dimonas, you must take the following into account.**

The Dimona for your employee only starts when he is effectively scheduled. This means that if he is already at work (much) earlier than the scheduled time, he is possibly legally out of order for the NSSO.

Don't forget to set up a standard rounding. This will be applied when someone isn't planned or is too late.

### Option 2: Only round before starttime

Rounding only if you clock in earlier than the scheduled start time.

Note! If not scheduled, the clock-in time will therefore never be rounded!

Don't forget to set up the standard rounding, otherwise the clockings (if they meet the conditions) won't be rounded
