Buenos días, estoy intentando "redondear" los segundos pero sin que se cambie los minutos en un formato HH:MM:SS. Exemplo: 13:27:33 que aparezca solamente 13:27:00

Hi, try this formula then format result as time.
=MROUND(A1,"0:01")

Quale formula si può usare per arrotondare al quarto d'ora, considerando che, per l'orario d'ingresso il minuto 15/30/45/00 deve essere successivo al minuto della timbratura mentre per l'uscita deve accadere esattamente il contrario?

Esempio:
ingresso 7:42 -> 7:45
uscita 12:18 -> 12:15

Hi, FREDY, you can try this formula
=IF(MINUTE(A3)<15,MROUND(A3,"1:00"),IF(MINUTE(A3)<45,MROUND(A3,"0:30"),MROUND(A3,"1:00")))
A3 is the cell that contains the time.
