This may be too simplistic for some needs, but we have devised a timesheet using Excel. My 6 employees log into Google Drive using their Gmail account and fill in their individual time sheets.
When logged in, they have drop down menus and choices for:
daily check in & out,
lunch time out,
project worked on and time spend on each task.
We then download the completed time sheets every 2 weeks, save the info for our files and reset the time sheets to zero with the new pay period.
They fill them in from their phones mostly, so it can be updated from anywhere and I can literally see them punching in live as I have the admin oversight.
So I can check on hours spent on projects & tasks in a timely fashion. Assuming the hours are filled in on a daily basis.
Hope that helps, feel free to inquire for more info.June 14, 2021 at 12:57 pm #12092

We had a custom program written.
We are generally pleased with how it works. (every program has tiny glitches)
We got this at a fraction of the cost of typical CRM or ERP systems.
It does Employee times, customer lists, quotes, supplier lists, inventory control, purchase orders, invoices, profit and loss reports for each order, and more.
Phase 1 was $4k, Phase 2 & 3 followed over next 2 years. All in under $10k.
Just employee time recording would only be a fraction of the cost.
Ours works like a time clock for payroll, and tracks labour for each task / each order, in 6 minute increments.June 14, 2021 at 1:00 pm #12099
