Duration input value in Forms not correct in Sheet

Options

We're using a Smartsheet Form to connect to a Project Tracker SmartSheet so that our operations team can submit their repair requests in the field quickly.

One of the questions in the Form is the estimated duration of the item. When the sheet is reviewed, the data type is returning as a text (i.e. the cell will read '2h vs 2h) and duration is unable to be calculated. We then have to go in behind and fix the data by manually typing 2h.

How can I have my duration question be the correct data type so we do not have to manually edit the sheet after every entry?
