Hours Worked and Time Tracking Apps

My hours app 2Products Nannies Love

Whether nannies are paid daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly it’s important for in-home caregivers to track the hours they work so they are paid the proper amount of overtime. Many nannies use a piece of notebook paper, daily log, or paper calendar to write down the hours worked. But in this technological-age there are easy apps to use for free to track hours on phones. Here are some free time tracking and timesheet apps we found. Some even let you track your mileage as well. Most are compatible with Google Calendar and make it easy to text or email your boss your timesheet.

  2. Thank you so much for this list! Work Log sounds perfect for me, a nanny who keeps track of mileage for tax reimbursement. I carry a notebook around with me and sometimes forget to bring it to log in , then have to calculate when I get home using google to get the mileage totals correct. With it in my phone, it’ll make going out a LOT easier–thank you!
