Simply enter start and end times for each work session to let the hours counting calculator do all the hard work for you!
Hours counting calculator can handle time-span that extend beyond midnight and even includes or excludes holidays in its calculations.
Time to Decimal Hours
No matter whether it’s for payroll purposes or simply to gain an accurate picture of how much time has been devoted to each project, this user-friendly calculator makes the conversion a straightforward process. Just enter hours, minutes or seconds you wish to convert and let this tool do all the hard work – rounding results as desired to achieve desired accuracy levels.
The hour countdown calculator also allows you to calculate the difference in time between two dates. Simply enter in your start and end times for your chosen period and click “Calculate Difference”, this tool will give you both full hours and decimal hours differences as well as remaining amount of time left in that day – making this tool especially helpful if your calculations span overnight or cross midnight!
When converting time from decimal form into hours, simply locate the number of minutes under “Minutes” in a table and follow its rows until reaching their corresponding number of hours displayed in “Decimals.” Alternatively, the same table can also help convert decimal time back into hours by finding its equivalent minute under “Hour” and then dividing by 60.
Manually handling conversions is tedious and prone to error; we therefore suggest using time tracking software like Buddy Punch for this process instead. Doing it this way saves you from doing them yourself while also guaranteeing employees receive their hours correctly each week.

Time to Military Time
No matter the nature of your employment or project, knowing how many hours in a day is often crucial. Our hour calculator makes this task easy by quickly and accurately converting any start time to total hours, including breaks and lunch. Furthermore, you can enable overtime in this tool so it counts all or only paid overtime hours depending on your preference and rules in your workplace.
The calculator can be set up to display the number of hours in a day using either standard 12-hour clock format or military 24-hour clock format, and you can select whether numbers 0-11 denote AM/PM on a traditional 12-hour clock, and use “day” instead of “hour”. You can also customize when and where you typically work each weekday as well as selecting holidays from a list and adjust other settings as desired.
Our online hour counter can also come in handy if you need to determine the duration of a period, such as how much time your children spend at school each day or the running time of a movie. Simply enter in your desired times to calculate, and this tool will instantly give the results.
Apart from calculating hours, our online time counter can also be used to find out the difference between two times. This feature is especially beneficial if you’re working with different currencies or time systems as it’s fast and straightforward to determine how many hours exist between any starting date and end date.
Clockify can also help you calculate payroll for your business or personal expenses and invoices for clients, with an option to exclude weekends and US federal holidays for more accurate weekly hour calculations and improved confidence in monthly earnings reports. While using a calculator is one way of quickly and easily calculating work hours, an all-in-one employee timesheet app such as Clockify makes the process faster, smoother, simpler, and reduces mistakes significantly.
Time to Daylight Savings Time
Every year on the second Sunday in March (or the first Sunday in November if not on DST) our clocks change, impacting sleep quality and increasing risk factors such as heart attacks, strokes and missed doctor appointments as well as more car accidents and mood changes. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) it is recommended to get seven to eight hours of restful sleep before and after switching over.
History of DST can be confusing, but its essence remains simple: by shifting clocks forward and back an hour twice annually during spring and fall time change periods, we make better use of available sunlight. This enables us to get more work done during daylight hours while leaving evenings and mornings open for leisure and restful enjoyment. The first mention of time manipulation dates back over 100 years; its motivations range from patriotism to practicality and public opinion considerations.
Most countries in the Northern Hemisphere that observe DST change their clocks twice annually between March-April and September-November; however, Russia, China, Japan and both Koreas have chosen not to observe DST, claiming it interferes with normal business activities or causes jet lag for visitors.
There have been various attempts at making DST permanent in the US, but all attempts have failed. Some bills were designed to address energy savings while others targeted crime reduction or traffic accidents as their purpose.
In 2022, a bill to make daylight saving time permanent passed the Senate but became stagnant in the House of Representatives. You can help support this effort by reaching out to your congressional representatives using the Action Center of AASM.
Time to Summer Time
Time can be easily understood for most people; 24 hours make up one day and 60 minutes make up an hour; there is also an agreed upon definition of what constitutes one second; similarly, each day has roughly 24 hours unless daylight saving time (DST) occurs and disrupts that pattern.
People typically track work hours using clocks calibrated to the local sun’s rotation, with most watches and phones featuring simple round dial clocks that use this system, though more complex astronomical instruments and astrolabes often feature more elaborate displays formats. There are various methods for counting hours throughout a day that vary based on when they start and end; plus how many hours between those start/end points they count as hours.
One common way of measuring time is counting the hours between sunrise and sunset; this was used by early humans to keep track of day’s passage. Later on, this system was replaced with more precise solar noon measurements which may differ slightly from midnight depending on season; some astronomical instruments still use such measurements, though modern clocks and atomic timekeeping have eliminated their necessity.
Time can also be measured using a 24-hour clock, where 12 hours are numbered from 0 to 23, followed by one additional hour to accommodate daylight savings time (DST). DST generally begins in spring when countries “spring forward”, or lose an hour, before returning back to standard time in autumn (“fall back”, or gain one).
Our free online hourly calculation tool makes it easy to keep an accurate time card or weekly report for your employees by quickly and accurately calculating how many hours were worked during any given period, with options for selecting either a four-day work week or seven-day schedule and including or excluding holidays as needed. It even lets you select individual federal holiday dates if desired so as not to include them in calculations!
