It’s natural when a new technology is introduced for people to have some resistance, a lot of times it can be attributed to lack of information or clarity on how the new tech works.  So here’s all the information on the TSheets and GPS tracking.

Here’s a video that gives an overview specifically around the GPS functions in TSheets and how they work.

Here’s a more detailed Infographic with technical aspects of GPS Tracking and data usage.

You can use this template to update your employee policy document to now use TSheets for timesheets.

The app will use too much of my phone's data or battery life.
TSheets uses very little data and they can see this for themselves by looking at data usage on the app after a month, refer to the infographic above to see how you can analyse usage data.  You might consider offering a $5-$7 reimbursement every month that will more than cover their additional Data usage.
"I'll forget to clock in or out."
The system is very simple to setup and it can remind you to clock in and to clock out.  You can set up notifications / reminders in personal settings or simply follow company settings.
"I don't know how to use it."
Advanced training is the key to a successfull roll-out. Rather than just telling employees to start using the app, to ensure that all employees receive training, schedule a staff meeting at which you can:

  • Watch pre-recorded webinars found at the TSheets Learning Center.
  • Attend a live online training session that:
    • Is tailored to the way your company will be using TSheets
    • Covers best practices
    • Addresses any individual concerns

To schedule a live session: contact our friendly Customer Experience team.

"I don't want my location to be tracked."
Location is only tracked when someone is on the clock.  When someone is on a break or off the clock the location is not tracked and this can be verified by sharing the online details or by viewing past timesheets.
"I'm concerned about Phone data and battery usage."
Location is only tracked when someone is on the clock.  When someone is on a break or off the clock the location is not tracked and this can be verified by sharing the online details or by viewing past timesheets.
How can I check how much data has been used by TSheets
  • Android: Tap Settings > Apps > Application manager.
  • iOS: Tap Settings > Data or Battery.

On both the OS if you scroll down to bottom  and If TSheets does not appear in the apps list, it is using less than 1% of the device’s battery power.
