How to track your time with our Excel template

  1. The template includes one spreadsheet per month (January to December).
  2. Enter the name of the employee, the FTE status (e.g. 50%), and the number of hours worked per day in the header. You can also use a formula to calculate the employee's initial and remaining vacation entitlement in hours.
  3. Each work day, employees enter the start of their worked hours ("in"), the end of their worked hours ("out"), and the duration of their breaks. Based on the entered times, the worked hours are automatically calculated in hours and minutes.
  4. In the event of illness, vacation, or public holidays, enter the worked hours in the respective column.

You can find all the legal regulations governing the tracking of worked time on the SECO website.

Should you use special software instead of an Excel template?

There are no regulations governing the method used to track worked hours. Common options for tracking hours are clocking-in machines, time tracking software, mobile apps, or Excel. SMEs in particular often rely on the tried and tested timesheet or a simple Excel template for keeping track of worked hours. Employees use the spreadsheet to enter their worked hours.

However, if you find that it is taking too much time to track hours using Excel or that you are not doing so accurately, it can be worthwhile to try out specialized software as an alternative to Excel: With the right tool, you can track time quickly and efficiently, saving you and your employees valuable time.
