We recommend using "minutes" as the log type for any program that measures reading based on time. We retired a separate "hours" log type because it does not sync with the Beanstack Tracker app, and does not allow participants to log in smaller increments.
If you use minutes, you may submit a ticket to request that your badges still show up as hours in total. For example, you may set up a badge to be earned after 60 minutes on the "backend," but to the patron it will display as a badge for "1 hour." Readers may also still enter their time in either hours or minutes. For example, if someone enters "1h" it will still trigger a badge being awarded for 60 minutes.
