Weekly timesheet template

The weekly timesheet template displays a single employee’s work hours during a single workweek.

You can use this template to...

Create an overview of an employee’s weekly tasks and some other information for the duration of a full workweek.

Moreover, the weekly timesheet template is an ideal solution when you’re in need of a weekly calculation for payroll and overtime hours for each individual employee.

In terms of client billing, all of the entries for “Total pay” are entered on an hourly basis, so you can see exactly how many work hours you need to credit to the clients. You can use “Total pay” for payroll as well.

Notable features include...

  • Hourly rate formulas automatically calculate the “Total pay,” thus saving you some man-hours.
  • Both regular and overtime hours are calculated based on the input from the “regular hours”.
  • The hourly rates can be either higher or lower depending on the category(e.g., overtime, breaks, vacation, etc.).

Pros and Cons of using spreadsheets for time tracking


  • Both you and your team are likely to be familiar with spreadsheet tools.
  • Spreadsheet tools are widely used and come as a standard time tracking procedure for most organizations as they have an intuitive learning curve. Mastering them, on the other hand, is a whole different thing.
  • Free of charge.
  • The most popular spreadsheet software, such as Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel, is free to download.
  • Your team is used to workflows that correlate with spreadsheet approvals.
  • They’re accustomed to sending their timesheets via email or storing them in a common repository. Once you have a time tracking policy for your company, you can easily integrate time tracking into the workflow using spreadsheets.
  • Spreadsheets are the most common method of integrating data with other systems.
  • Managers can either analyze the time entry data with a business intelligence tool or integrate the approved timesheets with dedicated payroll software.


  • Despite their intuitive learning curve, spreadsheets are not very user-friendly.
  • Keeping timesheet spreadsheets up to date can become a cumbersome and time-consuming task. Moreover, if you’re using a mobile device, your thumbs might become sore.
  • Tracing previous spreadsheet versions may leave you lost in history.
  • Spreadsheets can be edited by anyone with access, which is why it’s hard to see who made the last changes. Online spreadsheets usually have a version history but they are most commonly downloaded locally and forwarded via email.
  • Spreadsheets are prone to human error and data loss.
  • There can be cases where employees misenter their work data, forget to send their timesheets altogether, or end up sending them to the wrong person. When a company systemizes its workflow with spreadsheets and chain emails, some data might slip through the cracks.
  • Spreadsheets require too much administrative work.
  • Managers usually have to remind employees to submit their timesheets on time, collect them into a common format, and make sure they are timely forwarded to accounting or another responsible department. This takes a lot of time that managers could otherwise spend on more important tasks.
