Using the Kiosk
This video will show you how to clock in and out on the Kiosk tablets.
Using a Mobile Phone
Step 1: Register with Schuster
In order to sign-in to TSheets you'll need to register with us for an account. The payroll department will validate the details you provide and our system will send you a text message with your login information. If you choose to provide your email address, you can use this to reset your own password in the future. If not, you'll need to call the payroll department to get your password reset if you forget it or change devices.
Step 2: Downloading and Install TSheets Time Tracker (free):
Step 3: Signing In:
Sign In. Note, you'll need to have Location Services turned on for the app to function correctly. If using an iPhone, choose "Always Allow" when prompted for Location Access. The system will automatically clock you out if location services are disabled or turned off.
When logging in, if it tells you that your username was found under multiple companies, enter "schuster" as the company name.
Simple Clock In / Out
Open the app.
Hit Clock In. Note, you're expect to be at work and ready to work when you clock in.
When you're done, open the app and hit Clock Out. Simple.
Clock In with Job and Phase
Depending on your role, you may have to not only clock in and out but allocate your time to one or more projects. Here's how to do that.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much data does TSheets use? TSheets uses around 10MB per day on a normal day. This is about as much as sending 2 photos you took on your phone to someone else or streaming 2 of your favorite songs.
How will TSheets impact my phone's battery life? TSheets is thrifty. You'll should find that a full day of use will be less than 1-3% of your phone's battery. If you're concerned about how much that will cost you in electricity consider that the average SmartPhone uses around $.25 per year in electricity if you charge it daily.
What about GPS? The TSheets mobile app requires GPS and sends a GPS fix about every 10 minutes, however, your supervisor is only able to see your GPS fixes while you're clocked in. When you clock out the app no longer sends GPS or has access to your location. In other words, GPS is only available while you're on the clock. We think that's fair.
If you are having trouble with GPS please review this article for help:
We have noticed issues with Android phones that have the MyVerizon app installed. This app appears to do a Health Check periotically that turns off GPS. To disable this, do the following:
To turn off the health check, open the MyVerizon app, select Devices from the main menu, click Manage under the phone that's the issue, click Run Health Check, and then click the option at the bottom of the results to view and disable the Auto Health Check every day at 2.
Who can see my GPS coordinates? We limit access to your time card and associated GPS data to your supervisor or timekeeper and to our administrative departments such as Payroll, Human Resources, and IT Support. In other words, other employees or non-authorized managers or supervisors cannot access or request time card data for employees over which they have no authority.
