Tsheets and monday.com are two leading solutions that can track hours worked on tasks by your team.
If time tracking is crucial for your business — and who doesn’t find it important in the new remote work reality? — there’s a chance you may be struggling to choose between the two.
This article looks at Tsheets’ main features and how it compares to monday.com. We’ll help you choose which one is best for your circumstances and highlight any features that make either one stand apart from the other.
What is Tsheets?
TSheets is time tracking software from Intuit, the creators of the popular accounting package Quickbooks. Your staff can use Tsheets to clock in and out, record break times, and you can allocate employee time against projects.
TSheets main set of features includes…
- The ability to automatically transfer tracked hours to payroll
- Creating and sharing team schedules
- GPS location tracking that records where your team is working.
As is common with most time tracking tools, Tsheets offers an app available for smartphones. Your team can use the mobile app to track the time worked and the GPS location of where work’s taken place.
What is monday.com?
monday.com is a complete Work OS you can use to plan, track, and execute the work that makes up your projects and business growth.
With more teams now working remotely, it’s never been more vital to have a handle on employee work hours. With monday.com, you can track and record all of your team’s output.
monday.com fosters a transparent work culture. Allocation of tasks is quick and easy. Plus, customization of project plans is infinite using the flexible columns feature.
But let’s get back to time tracking (what you’re really looking for)…
With monday.com, when you start a task, simply click on the play icon to set the timer going ― when you’ve finished working on the job, hit stop. You can also pause the timer if you are switching between tasks or taking a break.
It looks like this within the monday.com project board:
What are the differences between Tsheets and monday.com?
TL;DR — Tsheets is more suited for businesses who need to record the precise location that work took place, while monday.com is the better option for businesses that need a more flexible approach to task and time tracking.
Both monday.com and Tsheets can record time worked against a project task. But what makes them stand apart, and which option is best for you?
It would be unfair to characterize Tsheets as a time tracking upsell for Quickbooks users ― there‘s more to Tsheets than that.
You can record hours you track with Tsheets against a task and later pass it through to a number of accounting packages for payroll processing. You can build employee schedules, add signatures to timesheets, and use GPS tracking to record job sites.
As we mentioned above, one neat feature Tsheets offers is a geofencing function that reminds users to clock off if they leave a specific pre-assigned GPS boundary.
However, those looking to track progress on projects or need access to the geofencing feature will need to sign up for Tsheet’s top-level subscription package.
monday.com featuresMore than ever, teams are working in what we call the whitespace — those gaps found between traditional tools like CRM or ERP. monday.com fills that whitespace.
Build your business’s workflow in visually-stunning boards. Plan out the work that your team needs to do into smaller action items, then add in the time tracking column to track how long each task takes.
You can export time-tracked values to multiple other tools — including Excel and Google Sheets — and use the data for whatever you need. And if you have contract staff, you can calculate accurate invoices directly in a monday.com board.
