Employee time tracking with geofencing

TSheets sends clock in and clock out reminders when your employees enter and leave a job site.

Employees and managers love geofencing for easy, more accurate time tracking. When employees enter or leave a job site, your TSheets time tracking app will send them a reminder to clock in or out and suggest a list of jobs for that location. Never forget to clock in or out again! Fewer timesheet edits, an extra level of verification, and an easier experience overall.

For employers

Reduce errors

When employees enter or leave a geofence, TSheets reminds them to clock in or out. This decreases the occurrence of timesheet errors and edits.

Super simple

No extra employee training needed. Geofencing reminders are set through the TSheets mobile app.

Crucial reporting

The Exceptions Report round-up flags timesheets for employees who're on the clock but off the job site.

For employees

Never forget to clock in

You don’t have to use the geofencing function, but it serves as a polite reminder if you forget to punch the clock.

Simple to use

A clock- in screen makes it easy to clock in to the right job.

Reduce manual timesheet entry

Geofencing tech remembers when you enter or exit a job site for accurate timesheets.

Privacy and best practices

Employers will only have access to employee locations while workers are on the clock.

Employers don’t have access to employee locations until employees clock in.

The user knows best. TSheets won’t automatically clock you in — we just make it easier.

TSheets doesn’t drain your phone’s data or battery life.

Employees won’t get notifications when they’re off the clock, even if they’re close to a work site.

Employers can set alerts, so employees only get notifications when they’re clocked in.

Study: Majority reports a positive experience with geofencing at work

When combined with mobile time tracking, geofencing can be used to remind workers to clock in or out. It can also be used to create safer job sites. But only 32 percent of our survey respondents said they’ve used the tech at work. Of those employees, 65 percent had a positive experience. And there’s certainly a correlation between an employee’s understanding of GPS and their comfort level with the tech. The better employees understand GPS tracking, the more comfortable they are with it.
