Would you like to spend less time manually processing payroll so you could spend more time growing your business?
That is exactly what the calculator on this page is designed to do.
I created this calculator based on my own experience with spending countless hours manually processing payroll for as many as 40 of my own employees.
So unlike other timesheet calculators on the web, my goal was not to create a calculator that would wow you with fancy colors, bells, and whistles. Instead my goal was to help you process the timesheets as fast as possible so you can get back to growing your business asap.
Contrary to popular belief, employee incentive plans rarely ever lead to any long-term increases in productivity.
And that's because all incentive plans -- cash or non-cash -- eventually fall victim to the law of diminishing returns.
The best way I have found to increase employee productivity, is to stop being a boss and instead become a coach.
Bosses order people around to boost their own egos, whereas coaches give their players the support, instruction, tools, and encouragement they need to increase their value to the team.
Coaching youth baseball alongside successful coaches for the past 15 years has taught me more about motivating people than any business book I've ever read.
From a motivational standpoint, adults are no different than kids. What they dream about most is the appreciation they will get when they make an important contribution to the team. A good coach will help turn those dreams into realities.
Here are the features that make this the fastest timesheet calculator on the web:
If you happen across a faster online timesheet calculator, please let me know.
If you are using a newer version of your web browser software (one that supports HTML5 Local Storage), you can now save your entries between visits -- either for yourself or for multiple employees.
However, please keep in mind that the saved entries can only be accessed from the device and web browser they were saved with. Also, Local Storage is not 100% reliable, and no backup method exists, so be sure to keep your paper records.
If you would like to save multiple time sheets to a secure database -- making them accessible across all of your devices and web browsers -- please see the Ad-Free Cloud Version of this website.
If the timesheet calculator on this page doesn't meet your needs, here are your other options:
If none of the existing versions accommodate your timesheets, please contact me and explain your needs in detail and I will consider creating another version.
Or, if you have a suggestion for improving an existing version, please let me know that as well. Just be sure to reference the calculator by its web address (http://www.free-online-calculator-use.com/...html) so I know which calculator you are referring to.
With that, let's use the 2-column weekly timesheet calculator to calculate your employees' pay period hours and gross wages for the week.

Employee name: Optional: If you will be printing the completed time card report for a specific employee, enter their name here.
If your web browser supports Local Storage, you can also add multiple employees to the drop-down list, and then save their individual in-out times between visits.
To add an employee, select New, enter the name, and then click the Add button.
To add/edit in-out times for an employee, select their name from the menu, enter/edit the in-out times, and then click the Save Changes button. If you don't want an employees wage info saved, leave the wage fields blank when saving changes.
To remove an employee from the list, select the employee name and click the Delete button.
Hourly pay rate: Optional: Enter the regular hourly rate of pay for the employee you are entering in/out times for. If you are using the local storage feature, and you don't want the wage to appear for each employee, leave this field blank when saving changes to the employee.
Overtime rate: Optional: Select the Overtime option that best matches your pay situation. If your employee receives overtime pay, enter the factor that your regular rate is multiplied by and the timesheet calculator will calculate the hourly overtime rate for you. Or, simply enter the overtime rate in the far right-hand field.
Day of the week your workweek starts on: Optional: Select the day of the week you want the timesheet calculator to start at. The Day column will automatically be filled in with the correct sequenced days. If you want the date included for each day (example: Mon Jan 1), select the month and day of the first day of the pay period. This will also populate the Day column with the correct sequenced days. If you don't want the date include select N/A from the month drop-down menu.
Time totals as hours:minutes or hours.hour-fraction? If you would like the time totals formatted to hours and minutes, select HH:MM (7 and 1/2 hours will appear as 7:30). Or, if you would like the time totals formatted to hours and fraction of an hour, select HH.HH (7 and 1/2 hours will appear as 7.50). Note that you can switch from one to the other format at anytime during time entry process, at which time the calculator will automatically reformat the daily totals.
Time entry format: When entering In/Out times, you can enter the time with or without the colon (:). For blocks of time that cover 12 or more hours (6:00 am to 6:00 pm), please use military times (refer to the military time conversion chart link in the next paragraph).
Military time format: If you need to enter a time span that is 12 or more hours in length, please use the pop-up military time conversion chart to look up the military times you will need to enter ("0000" will not be read by the calculator). You can then keep that conversion chart window open to refer back and forth when you need to.
Day column: You can change the text in this column to whatever identifier you would like to show up on the report.
Block 1 column: This work period is normally the period before lunch break.
Block 2 column: This work period is normally the period after your lunch break.
HH:MM/HH.HH column: This calculated column will total up your worker's hours:minutes (or hours.hour) for each day, and then total up the hours:minutes (or hours.hour) for the week. Fields in this column recalculate as you enter or change times in the timesheet.
