TSheets – Punch Your Timeclock the Modern Way


TSheets gives a much needed upgrade to the time clocking system by allowing employees to clock in from anywhere in the world. The web based system is simple to set up and uses job codes and time sheets just like a standard offline system. Just input a job code and click on the play button to start tracking time. Click on the stop button to stop tracking it. It’s effective, as long as you remember to press the buttons at the right time.

Once inside the system, users can keep track of how long they have been working and what they have been working on. One way is through a status box on the top right of the screen. Another is by clicking on the daily or weekly time card to see what hours you have worked. There is also an option to add paid time off, which makes this really useful for small businesses.

To get even more from TSheets, enable the available add-ons which add a range of functionality, including mobile timesheet updates, invoicing through a range of systems, integration with QuickBooks and more. There are several levels of Tsheets membership, making it ideal both for individuals working on freelance projects and business owners running a medium-sized team.

Practical Uses:

  • Keep track of the time spent on freelance jobs
  • Replace your ancient timeclock system with a modern version that your employees can use from anywhere
  • Gain control of your employee’s vacation days as part of overall time management
  • Generate reports that show how productive your employees are

Insider Tips:

  • Enable “allow employees to submit paid time off” in the advanced options to let employees manage this feature themselves
  • Use the available add-ons to allow invoicing (including integration with FreshBooks)
  • Integrate TSheets with your Toodledo task list for even greater productivity
  • Enable mobile access to update your time sheets and job codes from anywhere in the US
  • Send direct messages from Twitter to update your time sheets and job codes from anywhere (international)

What we liked:

  • It took just seconds to get started with TSheets
  • Entering job codes and tracking them is very simple
  • The daily and weekly reports are good
  • Businesses can get an at-a-glance view of who has actually clocked in

What we didn’t like:

  • You have to squint to read what’s on screen (a bit nit-pickey but worth mentioning in hope of some design improvements)

  2. Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information
    together. I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  4. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

  5. There are some casinos that offer one hundred per cent
    welcome bonuses, this basically means they will match whatever funds you deposit, you may even get lucky and find
    a scheme whereby a two hundred per cent bonus is provided
    upon signing up. There are several types of Bingo games played
    across the country. While these sites are filled
    with money making games it is advisable for beginners to start playing with
    free casino games.
