Timesheet software is accounting software used to maintain timesheets. This was the first wave of the time tracking software when computers came to many offices, with the goal of replacing all heavy paperwork for greater organization. Timesheet software allows entering time spent performing different tasks while working.
When used within companies, employees enter their time into an electronic timesheet, which can then be approved or rejected by supervisors or project managers.
When used by freelancers, timesheet software allows creating reports for clients to explain how their time was spent.
After 2006, timesheet software generally moved to mobile platforms and became more personalized, for example tracking time for each task individually.
