Using Microsoft Teams timesheet apps can reduce the hassle of doing timesheets. In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the best free and paid options available today.
Jibble (Free, paid upgrade plans)
The Jibble app consists of a chatbot that allows you to easily enter your timesheets by using a number of keywords such as IN (start time recording), OUT (end time recording) and TIMES (overview of weeks hours).
If you’re already using Jibble, then you’ll need to login and enable the Teams integration from the Jibble site first. Otherwise when you install the Teams app, you’ll be met with a blank conversation – we didn’t receive a welcome message until we sent ‘hi’, making it tricky to know what to do.
If you’re looking for a free timesheet tool, then Jibble is amongst the best available for Teams. However you won’t get access to all the features that the paid plans offer, and the app is a chatbot only – there’s no tab app available yet.
TrackingTime (free for 3 users, paid upgrade plans)
This is a tab app that is added to one of your existing Teams channels. Once added, a new ‘TrackingTime’ tab appears, and asks you to login.
From there you can easily add working hours against projects, view reports and breakdowns and more. There are also some basic project management features as well, making it useful for small agencies or businesses.
You can even use this app for absence tracking – so you might not even need one of the many absence and vacation tracking apps that are also available for Teams.
Available for free for up to 3 users, there are also paid plans available with additional features such as advanced timesheet reporting.
Klynke Time Management (Paid, free trial)
This app allows your team to easily enter their work time and view timesheets from within the Teams application. It also integrates with other Microsoft 365 services, including Outlook, Calendar, SharePoint and Planner.
All timesheets are reported using a tab & web UI – there’s no bot integration with this app yet. It also stores all data within your own Office 365 tenant.
Once reported, timesheets can be viewed from the dashboard.
A word of caution though – we had issues trying to setup this app, with pages slow to respond. We couldn’t get it to install successfully – so your mileage may vary.
After the first month, pricing begins at $2.49 per month, per user.
