As an aside, I can't thank everyone on this site enough for their answers. This site (and it's sister sites through SE) are INVALUABLE.

@baeltazor I think that's the key. Allow them to communicate with email outside the app too.

comment What is behind entering email twice for registration?
Interaction through the given email address may run into issues if your email is blocked by an overly-zealous ESP. Make sure to warn them to whitelist your domain etc.

comment Do users read pop up messages/notifications/error messages, etc.?
@MichaelLai I disagree. I rarely read popups even when they pop up in the middle of the screen in modal with the background darkened...I just don't and I don't think very many people do either.

comment User options - selecting the right control based on the number of options available
Hi @Izhaki! Thanks. That's true. It's at the top of the screen. Users won't switch very often. The main issue is that I am out of space for radio buttons.

Hmmm...I like the idea of bankers rounding.

@RumiP. It's not that the users will sum up the numbers, it's that they have other dashboards and indicators that give the aggregated value, so they KNOW what the total value should be. Their checks an balances will not agree. But I think I agree with you that you should sum the real numbers and round the total to arrive at your aggregate value.

@JørnE.Angeltveit I'm asking about the UX context. The more data getting summed into a total you have, the more the problem is compounded and you could have totals that are wildly different from their real value.

Answering the questions...I want to round to make it easier to read. There is a lot of data on the screen...decimals make noise on the screen (the client asked for rounded numbers for this reason).
