A modern employee timesheet app

Clockify is a digital employee timesheet app that works in a browser. Clockify streamlines timesheet collection and time analysis so you no longer have to fill out, scan, and store paper time sheets.

By using Clockify, traditional timekeeping systems such as physical timesheets and time cards, Excel spreadsheets, or rule-of-thumb estimates become obsolete.

Regulated overtime payments can be one of the heftiest bottom-line business expenses. Clockify makes it extremely easy for you to exactly know how many hours each employee has worked.

With Clockify, monthly and hourly employees can enter hours spent on specific projects/tasks throughout the week, and revise them when needed so your reporting data is consistent.

Clockify can also calculate payroll and calculate billable hours automatically, based on your employees' hourly rates.

Step 2

Set up projects/tasks

Create a list of pre-determined activities so your employees have a drop-down of pre-loaded tasks to choose from.

When you click on the search button or start typing, the list of activities should pop out for your employees — this saves time and helps out if you’re often working on the same projects.

  • Invite any number of people you want — no limits
  • Track your employees’ and colleagues’ progress
  • See how much time each employee has spent on a certain project
  • Analyze timesheet data to find ways to improve
Step 4

Employees fill their timesheets

Your employees can enter how much they've worked online via desktop or a mobile app (Android & iOS), or they can input it through the web browser and a handy browser extension.

Check employee hours in reports

Weekly reports can help you see who logged how much time each day in the week. You can also see:

  • Who worked overtime
  • Who took some time off
  • Who's going away on a vacation

Just drill down into the data using filters and export time and attendance in PDF, CSV, and Excel.
