Timesheet Management Has Never Been Easier



Short on time? Jump ahead and see how you can move beyond the desktop and turn your timesheet spreadsheets into a timesheet app!

Turn Your Spreadsheet 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! 

Timesheet Excel Template & App

This simple, ready-to-go template has all the key items you need to keep track of employees. It’s made up of a few key column headers:

  • Timestamp and Date records when employees are clocking in and out.
  • Time In/Time Out & Total Hours allows you to automatically calculate how long each employee spent on shift.
  • Hourly Wages & Total Wages makes it easy to keep track of hourly and total wages for employees.

To meet your business needs, you can add or update columns. For example, you could add an overtime hours and overtime hourly wage column.

Bonus: You can easily modify the above template and convert it into a Timesheet Management App. The app enables store managers and employees to convert desktop tasks to everyday work processes that work with you where you're at. It allows you to do the following:
  • Track and input hours on the go.
  • View current employees on shift as well as a scheduled log of hours.
  • Customize to include features such as overtime and email reports as needed.
