Short on time? Jump ahead and see how you can move beyond the desktop and turn your timesheet spreadsheets into a timesheet app!
Spreadsheets provide an ideal way to input, view, and manipulate data on desktop computers. In this article, we've included 3 of the best excel-based timesheet templates to help you manage your business.
On mobile, spreadsheets can be much more difficult to utilize and manipulate. That's why we've also included a few links to AppSheet's platform which enables anyone to turn an Excel spreadsheet or Google Sheet into a functional timesheet app in minutes.
You can either adapt the templates to meet your own business needs, or you can turn them into apps—it’s up to you!

This template, developed by TrumpExcel, works for any business that's looking for a simple way to keep track of hours entirely through an spreadsheet.
This template is made up of three main tabs—Weekly TImesheet, Bi-Weekly Timesheet, and Monthly Timesheet. Weekends are highlighted in pink. Certain columns will auto-populate based on the data you input.
You can change the base hours and rates at the top of the spreadsheet.
This will then affect the column tabulations and totals at the bottom of the sheet.
This template is for companies with more of a freelance/project-based orientation. Employees can easily submit their time cards which includes space for overtime, holiday, vacation, sick leave, and personal leave.
At the bottom of the spreadsheet, you can find helpful summation cells as well as room for employee/supervisor sign-offs.
This template can also be easily printed for paper records if you choose to go that route. Or, you could utilize an AppSheet app for digital signatures and workflows.
Bonus: All work and no play makes... for low employee morale, productivity, and retention. For that special time of the year, you'll need a spreadsheet and matching app to handle requests :)

These are just a few of my favorite Excel templates for timesheet management. You can use them just as they are OR easily transform them into mobile apps. If you have other favorite Excel templates, let me know by submitting a comment or tweet. I'm always looking for templates to add to this list!
