Automating Time Spent



I've been reading through various articles, threads, and Google searches looking to see if there was a solution to calcuate how long it takes to complete a task.

Currently, I have a sheet user inputing a new row and the first portion of data, lets just say columns A:D. Then, they save and work in another system. Then come back ad fill out columns E:P, followed by a save.

That final save updates the modified time stamp and I want to know the difference between the created and final modified time. Is it possible to have this all done automatically? I've only seen manual input options.

A formula like =Created-Modified returns a decimal number and it's not obvious to me how I could convert this into hours.

Thanks for any help!
