    Support is AWESOME and the Account Managers are the best. I never have to wait very long to get an answer or get a problem fixed. Just like today, the customer service rep, helped me fix an issue with the mobile app.

    Pros

    The ease of use for time tracking and the auto-syncing with QuickBooks Online. The support from TSheets is outstanding and that is the NUMBER ONE reason I stay with TSheets.

    Cons

    The scheduling module is a bit lacking for some of my clients. This is why some of my clients have gone with a different solution. As soon as the scheduling is up to their standards I will get them back to TSheets

    It does save me a ton of time in tracking and payroll. It's also helped us out with determining accurate pricing for some of our services.

    Pros

    It integrates very well with the QBO platform, so if you're already using Quickbooks Online and Online Payroll, it's probably your best option. It's also pretty customizable, allowing it to be used for a variety of unique situations.

    Cons

    Intuit's customer support is useless. They're not empowered to do much of anything except tell you they can't help. At least that's been my experience. I did get good support during onboarding, but in general, if I call with an issue, they're mostly just hanging out on the phone with me while I more or less figure it out on my own.

    In the beginning it was good. It did what we needed and the service was great. Then they got rid of their great service staff and increased their prices by double and it got more glitchy over time, not better. Too bad. lots of potential here. And for such a big company like Intuit to purchase TSheets and then cut back on quality and service and increase prices seems like an indication of their business practices. shame :(

    Pros

    At the beginning we had an account manager who was super helpful and did everything she could to get the software to how we needed it. We like how it works with QB and it has the functions we needed.

    Cons

    It would randomly clock employees out for no reason.
    When an employee would clock out, sometimes it would keep them clocked in.
    We had an amazing account manager, then with no heads up, i emailed her one day and got a returned email. I called them and they told me she no longer works for the company. I asked who my new account manager was and they said they no longer provide one and that i have to go through their chat system. It made troubleshooting and customizing impossible.
    We got an email the other day stating that they are increasing their prices by double. We were paying a $20 base fee and $5 per user. Now its going to be $30 base fee and $10 per user. WTH! Its barley worth the $5 per user. You also have to pay extra for a lot of the add ons. This is why we're leaving this system. It feels like once they have you hooked, they keep adding costs. That or they are going to dissolve TSheets and integrate something into QB then charge a premium. That sounds more like something they'd do.

    The GPS staff tracking feature helped us save the life of one of our field agents once. After she had clocked in and began with her household visits, we noticed through the location tracker that she was moving way outside her assigned zone. After calling repeatedly without response, our security protocols kicked in and we quickly alerted a nearby team who were able to track her down to the vehicle she had been forced into. Long story short, QuickBooks was that security tool we didn't know we had but ended up helping save a life.

    Pros

    The comprehensive project analytics and reporting features have allowed us to boost the efficiency of our processes 10 times over. Insights provided allowed us to redistribute our field agents to low output locations. Also, assigning shifts to rotation teams has become extremely easy now. I no longer spend hours trying to ensure a fair computation of assigned times.

    Cons

    The application of the GPS features for tracking travel times need to be enhanced more to enable direct cost calculations through pre-determined rates.

    Tsheets makes it simple for the employee, project manager and accounting team to record hours, gather information and track projects. Glitches eventually work themselves out but I've grown to expect some issues when enrolling new employees, even though they have the same setup. I appreciate that it integrates with Quickbooks as well.

    Pros

    Easy to run reports by custom date range, project, customer and employee. This is crucial for our accounting and project management.

    Cons

    The permissions can be confusing when setting up new employees, whereby the employee(s) were unable to access features by phone or computer even though their permissions were identical to another employee's. Of particular issue was entering hours manually rather than clocking in/out -- the option simply wouldn't show up on their end. It seemed to take making the same changes several times before the program "clicked". Perhaps there can be a copy/paste feature for new employee profiles.

    Reasons for Switching to QuickBooks Time

    Decided to go with T-sheets over Quickbooks timesheets because it integrates well with QB, provides a simplified interface for employees, and is offered at a lower price.
