Create a Custom Field using the Duration Field Type that will return the total hours spent on a work item rounded down to the nearest integer.


$ActualEffort\Hours(1) is used to normalize the actual effort in amount of hours (regardless of whether the effort was entered in days, weeks, etc). The Hours() function is then used to convert the effort back to the duration field.

Example: $C_value = 5.4, Floor($C_value) > returns 5

Example: $C_value = 99.9999, Floor($C_value) > returns 999

Tips Create workflow rules to set standard field values via formulas
