Employee time tracking with geofencing

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

Employees and managers love geofencing for easier, more accurate time tracking. When you enter or leave a job site, your TSheets time tracking app will send you a reminder to clock in or out and suggest a list of job options associated with that location. Fewer timesheet edits, an extra level of verification, and an easier experience overall.

For employers

Less fuss

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

Super simple

No extra training needed. Geofencing helps your team clock in to and out of the right job every time.

Crucial reporting

The Exceptions Report collects flagged timesheets for employees who are on the clock but outside of a job site.

For employees

Clock in and out on time

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

Works behind the scenes

A clock in screen with relevant job codes assigned to that location makes it easy to clock in to the right job.

No editing needed

Geofencing technology 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% of our survey respondents said they’ve used the tech at work. Of those employees, 65% had a positive experience. There’s a direct correlation between an employee’s understanding of GPS and their comfort level with the technology. The better they understand GPS tracking, the more comfortable they are.
