Weekly Timesheet Templates

The Value of Weekly Timesheet Templates

Timesheet templates are a great way for managers to save valuable time and effort during their company’s payroll process. You probably already have a fair idea of how templates generally work, but the weekly timesheet template descriptions you’ll find on this page will help ensure that you’ll use them efficiently.

You’ll find several different kinds of weekly timesheet templates below. Time Clock Wizard also offers daily, bi-weekly, and monthly templates, but many companies are most comfortable about the weekly format we’ll discuss here. You’ll find more detailed descriptions of our weekly templates below, but let’s take a few moments to talk about the format in general.

Weekly timesheet templates can give you an up close look at your company payroll. While this definitely has value for some companies, weekly timesheets provide you with the wide angle view that many managers prefer. They’re also easier to fill out than daily timesheets, thus saving you and your people a significant amount of time.

How the Templates Differ From One Another

As you’ll see in the descriptions below, there are a number of difference between our various weekly templates. For a complete account of these differences, it’s a good idea to consult the individual descriptions you’ll find below. But here’s a quick summary of how the templates might differ:

  • Different templates cover different amounts of time– usually one or two weeks
  • Some calculate overtime automatically while others don’t
  • Sometimes, you’ll need to enter the start and end times of each employee, while other templates simply require the number of hours worked
  • A few of these templates are capable of recording the work hours of multiple employees, but most can only deal with a single employee.

This list is not exhaustive– there are a few other differences between our various weekly time sheet templates– but it will be a great help in weighing your options.  In the following sections, you’ll find several different types of weekly timesheet templates. We’re quite certain that one will fit your needs perfectly.

Note: all of these templates available for free download in Excel, PDF, and Word Formats.
