» Identity: For TSheets to send reminders and notifications, the app needs to verify who's using the phone.

» Phone: This information is needed so you can tap the "Need help?" phone number to contact TSheets Support from the sign-in screen.
» Photos/Media/Files: This is the generic label for access to any one of these three items. TSheets only accesses your media storage device to store the local database and debug logs on your phone.
» Wi-Fi Connection Information: This information is used to detect whether you are in Wi-Fi range. When in range, TSheets uses that connection to reduce battery and data usage.
» Camera: This makes it possible for you to upload and change your TSheets profile picture.
