QuickBooks Time overview

What is QuickBooks Time?

Every 1.3 seconds, somewhere in the world, an employee tracks time with TSheets. Thousands of companies in 30 countries trust our time tracking and reporting technology for record-breaking (and record-keeping) success.

TSheets is the magic ingredient to making it all work; employees fall in love with how easy time tracking is. Truly. Versatile, mobile and accessible, it’s all about the experience. Employees can track time anywhere, any way they want—using a computer, mobile phone, tablet, GPS-enabled app, text, dial in number and so much more—with clock in / out punch card or manual timesheet flexibility.

All this adds up for everyone, from HR and IT decision-makers to employees clocking in and out every day. TSheets is the #1 employee rated and requested time tracking system on the planet. This core passion makes a real difference for bottom line productivity and accountability across the board. With TSheets, owners and managers can keep track of everything—employees, locations, notes, job codes, even paid time off, vacation and holiday hours—in real time.

Then, they can report it all with data driven precision, running payroll, billing and invoices against time tracked, making calculated accuracy a way of doing business. If desired, administrators can also often instantly sync timesheet data with their existing bookkeeping software, even integrating with QuickBooks in just one click.

Founded in 2006 as the innovative brainchild of CEO Matt Rissell and chief programmer Brandon Zehm, TSheets headquarters is in Eagle, Idaho, but TSheets’ time tracking technology lives in “the cloud,” where data stays secure and accessible no matter where your company goes, no matter what you need to do.

At the end of the line, our unparalleled customer service and support team serve to make the TSheets experience truly exceptional. We combine high-tech expertise with friendly real-world insight, so you can learn and understand how to make the best use of our technology by talking to an actual person, joining a weekly webinar, watching a how-to video, or finding a wealth of help online at www.TSheets.com.

Support is AWESOME and the Account Managers are the best. I never have to wait very long to get an answer or get a problem fixed. Just like today, the customer service rep, helped me fix an issue with the mobile app.

The ease of use for time tracking and the auto-syncing with QuickBooks Online. The support from TSheets is outstanding and that is the NUMBER ONE reason I stay with TSheets.

The scheduling module is a bit lacking for some of my clients. This is why some of my clients have gone with a different solution. As soon as the scheduling is up to their standards I will get them back to TSheets

Tsheets makes it simple for the employee, project manager and accounting team to record hours, gather information and track projects. Glitches eventually work themselves out but I've grown to expect some issues when enrolling new employees, even though they have the same setup. I appreciate that it integrates with Quickbooks as well.

Easy to run reports by custom date range, project, customer and employee. This is crucial for our accounting and project management.

The permissions can be confusing when setting up new employees, whereby the employee(s) were unable to access features by phone or computer even though their permissions were identical to another employee's. Of particular issue was entering hours manually rather than clocking in/out -- the option simply wouldn't show up on their end. It seemed to take making the same changes several times before the program "clicked". Perhaps there can be a copy/paste feature for new employee profiles.

My experience with QuickBooks Time has been a pleasant one. It is really convenient that we can clock in on our cell phone when moving from job to job. When I am doing payroll, it is so easy to pull up everyone hours and run reports that meet my needs. I love this program, it makes my job easy.

This software is so easy to clock in and out. I work for a construction company, so it great how easy it is to see how much each person spent on each job so that we can bill the customers correctly. It is a very simple program and o easy to teach everyone how to use it correctly.

I don't really have any cons to this software. It does everything I need it to do in order for me to get my job done everyday.

In the beginning it was good. It did what we needed and the service was great. Then they got rid of their great service staff and increased their prices by double and it got more glitchy over time, not better. Too bad. lots of potential here. And for such a big company like Intuit to purchase TSheets and then cut back on quality and service and increase prices seems like an indication of their business practices. shame :(

At the beginning we had an account manager who was super helpful and did everything she could to get the software to how we needed it. We like how it works with QB and it has the functions we needed.

It would randomly clock employees out for no reason. When an employee would clock out, sometimes it would keep them clocked in. We had an amazing account manager, then with no heads up, i emailed her one day and got a returned email. I called them and they told me she no longer works for the company. I asked who my new account manager was and they said they no longer provide one and that i have to go through their chat system. It made troubleshooting and customizing impossible. We got an email the other day stating that they are increasing their prices by double. We were paying a $20 base fee and $5 per user. Now its going to be $30 base fee and $10 per user. WTH! Its barley worth the $5 per user. You also have to pay extra for a lot of the add ons. This is why we're leaving this system. It feels like once they have you hooked, they keep adding costs. That or they are going to dissolve TSheets and integrate something into QB then charge a premium. That sounds more like something they'd do.

Very very good, it does exactly what we need and more. We are very happy with the entire system.

This software has such an easy interface, it was very easy to deploy even to our less than technology-savvy employees. Our roll-out took less than 30 days to have all employees entering their time and requesting PTO.

NONE! We love this software. The reporting is great, and we are able to look at the time for each project.
