As with all apps, in order to work, the TSheets app needs access to some of your mobile device's functions. Be assured that no person, at any point, can access your personal information. Here is a list of TSheets access requests and why they are needed:
Identity: For TSheets to send reminders and notifications, the app needs to verify who's using the phone.
Location: This information is needed for GPS tracking to function (but only when you're clocked in).
Phone: This information is needed so that, on the sign-in screen, you can tap the Need help? phone number to contact TSheets Support.
Photos/Media/Files: This is the generic label for access to any one of these three items. TSheets only accesses your media storage device to store the TSheets app on your phone and the system log for debugging purposes.
Wi-Fi connection information: This information is used to detect whether or not you are in wifi range. When in range, TSheets uses that connection to reduce battery and data plan use.
Camera: This makes it possible for you to upload and change your TSheets profile picture.
How to Navigate the Apps
Note: The mobile app will work with or without a wifi or data connection. If no connection is available, the app stores all tracked information until a connection is reached, at which point it will send the stored information into the web dashboard.
