Access Permissions and Your Privacy

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.

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. 

At the top left of any TSheets screen:
Tap your initials in the top left to see:

  • Account Info: Your username, email, groups you belong to, your company's TSheets web address, and permissions granted to you by your administrator.
  • Settings:
  • Notification settings: Tap this to view and update your "On the clock" notifications, clock-in and out reminders, and Schedule notifications and reminders. From here you can also restore the default notifications as set by your administrator.
  • Remember selections: Have TSheets remember your last time card selections.
  • Reset app: Tap this to remove currently displayed information. When you sign in again, the data is restored.
  • Sync now: Tap this to immediately sync your mobile data with your company account.
  • Contact TSheets Support: Tap this to get support or leave feedback.
  • About TSheets: See the version of the TSheets app that you are currently running.
  • Sign out

At the bottom of the screen:

  • Tap Overview to see:
  • MY TOTALS: Daily, weekly, and pay-period totals
  • LOCATION: Current GPS location, if location services are enabled
  • TODAY'S SCHEDULE: Today's assigned shifts 
  • MY WORK: A pie chart of weekly jobs or customers
  • PAID TIME OFF (PTO): A list of each type and available hours for each
  • Tap Time Clock to see the default display, which allows you to:
