Mobile apps make time tracking easy


TSheets is compatible with iOS and Android, so it works on the devices remote employees already have. Use the TSheets mobile app to clock in and out, track paid time off and sick days, add notes, and attach photos to timesheets. Employers can approve employee timesheets directly from their smartphones, too. Online or offline, TSheets covers your employee time tracking needs. Plus, time data is accurate-to-the-second, so remote employees know they’re meeting wage and hour requirements for their city, state, or classification.

GPS tracking puts remote employees on the map


Every TSheets account comes with GPS location tracking. Manage remote workers and keep project-based employees accountable for where they need to be during the workday. TSheets records GPS points each time employees clock in and out, take a break, or change jobs. View remote employees’ locations in the Who’s Working window, whether they’re commuting to a shared space or working from their local coffee shop. You can even create a geofence around project sites, so remote employees get clock-in and clock-out reminders upon entering or leaving a job site. Find out how remote workers feel about GPS tracking in the workplace.

Anytime, anywhere alerts and notifications


Custom reminders help remote workforces run smoothly. Employees can receive helpful alerts and reminders via email or push notification. Set alerts to remind employees to clock in and out at the beginning and end of a shift, submit time for payroll, avoid unapproved overtime, and more. No matter what time zone remote workers are in, they’ll always be on track.
