Time tracking allows contractors to log the number of hours they work each week, save and export these hours as a CSV with daily or weekly breakdowns. Keeping track of the hours worked helps independent contractors bill for their hours more accurately. Being able to log, save and export their hours is the first step towards more automated and accurate invoicing for contractors.

How Contractors can use time-tracking in Remote

  1. To log your hours from your Remote dashboard, click on the Time tracking tab.
  2. You will see the current week where you can add time periods worked, breaks and notes to each time period. Time periods marked as Break do not count towards total hours worked for the day. Public holidays are labeled in timesheets, but contractors can still log their hours on these days.


  3. Once you’ve logged in your work hours, click on Save. Saving or exporting the timesheet does not share it with your company and does not lock the timesheet. You can make changes to your timesheets at any time.


How to export timesheets

  1. To export your timesheet, click on Export CSV, select the Daily breakdown or Weekly timesheet and customize the export according to your needs by selecting all the columns you’d like to include in the report.


  2. Once you’ve customized your report accordingly, click on the Export CSV button to download the file.
