Time tracking for painless payroll

Simple shift scheduling

With TSheets employee scheduling, creating a new schedule—or copying last week’s—is easy. Employees can get text, push, or email notifications whenever managers publish or change the schedule. And workers can clock in for shifts from their smartphones. If your city or state has scheduling laws, TSheets can help with that, too. Post fair workweek-compliant employee schedules, and stay ahead of unintended overtime with a scheduling solution that keeps everyone on the same page.

Time Clock Kiosk

Using the TSheets Time Clock Kiosk, retail and restaurant employees can clock in using a four-digit PIN. They’ll be on the clock and ready to work in seconds. Reduce buddy punching and increase accountability with facial recognition. Enable photo capture and facial recognition, and the time clock will snap a photo of every employee who clocks in or out. Any timesheet photo that doesn’t match gets flagged for admin review.

Mobile time tracking

The TSheets time tracking app for iPhone and Android makes it easy for employees to track time anywhere. Plus, employees can submit time for payroll from their smartphones. Complete the entire time tracking process from the palm of your hand. Even when employees are outside of cell service, TSheets records time tracked in the app and syncs when they’re back in range. Accurate time tracking from any location has never been easier.

Real-time data and reports

To run a retail business or restaurant successfully, you need all the insights you can get. That means keeping an eye on things like hours, overtime, and payroll. Run real-time reports from the TSheets web dashboard. Access important data when you need it, and make more informed decisions for the future of your business.

Real-time notifications

Tracking attendance can help you better understand what your business needs and improve your cash flow and labor costs. To help keep workers on track, employees can receive reminders to clock in or out or submit time for payroll. Notifications can also let employees know when they’re approaching overtime and when they’ve reached a job site with a geofence around it.

FAQs for retailers and restaurants

In any business, it’s imperative to save time and work efficiently. But for retailers and restaurants, where margins are tight, nothing is more important than time management. And time management starts with time tracking. In TSheets, retail and restaurant managers can get a holistic view of how their employees are spending time on the clock. Managers can see how often employees work overtime, and if some employees work more than others. That information can help employers make decisions about schedules and hiring.

Businesses can use TSheets to track employee time, schedule employees and jobs, and perform job costing. TSheets cannot take payments or manage inventory. That said, TSheets integrates with other sales tools and POS systems, including Square.
