What is the best way to track employee hours?

Clockify is an employee productivity tracking app that tracks work hours and categorizes time entries using timesheets. With its accurate tracking abilities across the web and apps, you no longer have to fill out, scan, and store paper timesheets.

How does it work?

An employee logs in, selects what they've worked on, and either starts a timer or manually enters work hours in a timesheet. Then, you can immediately see tracked time in reports and export the data for payroll.

With Clockify, you can see:

  • OT (overtime) hours
  • Who took some time off
  • Who worked on what and when
  • How much money each project brings in
  • How much you need to pay each team member

How to track employee overtime hours with Clockify?

Tracking work hours and overtime has always been a rigid and unnecessarily complex process with traditional timesheets.

Nowadays, apps such as Clockify simplify that process and allow you to do your job without worrying about trivial issues regarding task and project management.

Therefore, here are some instructions to get you familiarized with Clockify and how you can fully utilize it.

Step 1

Create Clockify account

Before you can start tracking overtime, you'll have to create a Clockify account. Tracked data will be synchronized across all devices you have Clockify installed on.

Employees enter hours in web timesheet

Each team member gets their own timesheet, where they can select what they worked on and log how much time they spent on it.

Or employees can clock-in and clock-out via app

Employees can start a timer via web, desktop, and mobile app to track their overtime. Clocking-in and clocking-out can also be automated so the timer automatically starts and ends when they turn on the browser.
