You could also enable to automatically round time records made with the time.
By default the unit in invoices for projects would be “hours”. However, you could also use “days” as unit. When using personal day as task unit you could set up how many hours equals one personal day. E.g. if you type it 8:00 hours equals a personal day and you’d tracked 16:00 hours to a task on the invoice you’d see 2 days.
