We are adding a new feature to our document editor toolbar for time-based input. You can add the new field on new documents or a form you have previously set up. You can read about other tools available here.

**How to add the time field to your document:**

- Click on the time field button from the toolbar
- Add the time field as needed on your document.
- You will see a new option to the fields settings for the time field button in addition to the usual options:

•**Required:**Have the option of making the field required or optional.

•**Field For**: Assign the field for a specific step along your approval route.

•**Editable by approvers?:**Have the field be editable by approvers who have editing rights turned on.

•**Time intervals:**Allows the time input to round up or down to the nearest interval. You will have the option to round to a 15 min. interval, 30 min. interval, or the nearest hour. For example, rounding to the nearest**15 min**. interval will change user input of**9:10 AM**to**9:15 AM**and**9:05 AM**to**9:00 AM.** - Click
**Save**.

**How to add formula calculations with your time fields:**

*Please note: You must have at least two time field entries in order to use them on a formula calculation.*

- Make sure you have Start and End time fields added to your document.
- Toggle advanced tools from the advanced options menu.
- Select the formula tool from the added options in your toolbar.
- Add a new formula field to your document.
- Change the calculation type to “
**Time duration**”. - Your time fields will now have a label such as “F1, F2, F3” you can use to calculate your
**Start**and**End**times. - Specify decimal rounding and field assignment.
- Click
**Save**.**If you need to aggregate multiple time calculations:** - Add a new formula field.
- Make sure to select calculation type to “
**Number**”. - You will now be able to create formulas using previous time calculation totals.
**Save**your progress

**Considerations for end-users:**

- People using the form must include AM or PM, and input time in a 12-hour format.
- The input will auto-format to an acceptable format as long as they enter at least "a" for AM and "p" for PM. For example
**,**1234p will be auto-formated to 12:34 PM. - The user will see an “Invalid” warning if the time fields are missing the start or end time for a formula. They will be able to save progress, but will not be able to submit their form with an invalid field.
- We encourage you to let the form users know if the fields are rounded to the nearest interval to avoid confusion.
