It can be quite stressful, and most importantly time consuming to manage timetables within a spreadsheet on a piece of paper. You’re bound to have typing mistakes, and the fact that you have to edit them just adds more to the frustration. We’ve all been there.
You could take advantage of one of my recent post, on how to create pivot tables in excel, but that too, would take quite some time getting used to. It’s probably the best choice for business people, and those who’re working in the office.
There are alternatives, those which I’m going to list in this post. They’re all simple time card, time sheet calculators available for free on the web, and they’re going to save you a ton of time. I’ve tried to pick the ones that are interactive, and easy to understand.
I’ve also tried to find some that allow to save your templates, so you don’t have to always enter the same data over and over again.
Timesheets are great for keeping a track of your working hours, and those of your employees. It makes the process much quicker, and you’re able to relax while the computer does all of the hard stuff. Like I said, this list is very generous and functional, but you might want to look into corporate software if you happen to be working for – or owning one – a big company that needs to manage hundreds of employee timetables.
You can click on the images of each of the timesheet calculators to go to the original pages and start using each one. Have fun!

The first one comes from E.S.Q. Software, it has been around for a long time, but it’s also one that many people recommend due to it’s functionality.

I think you’ll find this one quite appealing because it provides the ability to calculate more difficult calculations, and also gives you the ability to calculate wages straight from the tool.
