Timesheets and time tracking software FAQs

The best timesheet software will allow you to track time and attendance as well as projects. Projects timesheets is a new feature in Sage HR to help track hours spent on projects, tasks, or focus areas. The purpose of project timesheets is not related to pay, but to help keep track of what hours you've spent on specific projects, making it easier to assess resources. 

With our Leave Management module, you can handle time off requests and approvals digitally, then track them in shared calendars and reports. With timesheets you can also track overtime hours. This overtime can be automatically broken down into different categories for greater insights. This is particularly useful for differentiating between rates at which overtime is paid, but also for helping you identify the need for extra resource or employee downtime. 
With clock-in, clock-out features, you can accurately record when your employees start and finish work. Download the new Sage HR app, and enable the settings to allow self-serve for your employees. They can then use the self-serve functionality to clock in and out via the dashboard on their phones, reducing the need for your input. 

Sage HR provides a number of features to help you carry out all your people management tasks and admin. HR software resources can include: 

  • Managing staff personal details.
  • Managing absences including holidays, sickness, parental leave, and other absences.
  • Staff performance.
  • Rewards and recognition.
  • Documentation such as staff handbooks and business policies.
  • Working patterns and shift scheduling.

  • Recruitment and staff onboarding.

  • Staff surveys.
  • Clock-in and clock-out.
