      Tags as a catch-all heirarchy solution started off as a good idea, but as the site as grown and I’ve learned more about SlimTimer user usage patterns I now see a place for “supertags” or explicitly defining concepts like Project and Billable v Non-billable tasks. I’ll have more on this soon.

        The problem is that unless we show seconds as well as minutes on the reports have to round to the nearest minute. The alternative, to make the total the sum of the rounded cells, leads to a much more insidious problem where your totals will be incorrect and vary depending on the type of report your run.

        Let’s say you ran a report for last month by task. There were 5 tasks and the total, the sum of those 5 rows, was 100. Now let’s say your re-run that report but this time by entry which produces 200 rows. Odds are that your total will now be greater than 100 as you’re introducing more rounding error with every row added together.

        They could. It just adds noise as most people don't care about seconds.
