5 QuickBooks Time—formerly TSheets—tips for better productivity 

When running a small business, it’s crucial that you manage your employees’ time accurately and effectively. Keeping track will help reduce the cost of unproductive hours or wasted minutes. TSheets allows you to track time, streamline payroll, send accurate invoices, and save thousands of dollars annually. 

Here are a few of our favorite tips so you can easily start time-tracking and make your small business more productive! 

What is TSheets? 

TSheets, now QuickBooks Time, is Intuit’s time-tracking platform. It allows you to track employee hours, manage projects, and organize payroll for your small business. 

Small business owners can manage expenses, cash flow, and employee time-tracking from one sleek, intuitive dashboard.  

How to be more productive with QuickBooks Time 

If you’re new to running your small business or Intuit’s suite of products, using software to handle administrative tasks like time-tracking may seem overwhelming. Review the five steps below for some Quickbooks Time (formerly TSheets) help and tips.  

1. Go mobile 

Download the QuickBooks Time Tracking app if you don’t have a computer nearby. This app can serve as a time clock system for employees who forget to bring their phones to work and need to check in. 

The app can transform any tablet or computer into a time-tracking device. Employees can clock in and out through the app using a four-digit PIN.  

2. Let employees manage their time 

If you are a new small business owner adopting QuickBooks Time, chances are your employees may need to learn how to use the service. Employees may make mistakes from time to time and send over “edit requests.” This may kill some productivity. 

In the beginning, allow employees to manage their own timesheets and let them keep accurate logs of their work. Doing this will prevent employees from sending through “edit requests” too often. 

3. Standardize time-tracking 

Time-tracking is most effective when you can draw insights from the data across all employees. But to do that, you may need to make time-tracking mandatory. If employees aren’t used to tracking time, they may resist doing it or forget. 

As a small business owner, make sure to include time-tracking procedures in your company’s employee handbook. Make sure to convey to your employees that by using QuickBooks Time, employees can ensure payment for every second they work, and they’ll never have to wonder what their next paycheck will look like. 

4. Ask questions 

If you’re new to QuickBooks Time you may have questions about how the scheduling tool works. Call, email, or chat with the Customer Experience team on the QuickBooks Time website. This group of amazing individuals can help your business answer your pressing questions and provide QuickBooks Time help so that you can get the most out of the application.
