Streamline payroll and pay employees correctly

Accurate timesheet data is the basic input for processing payroll for employees and contractors. HiveDesk automates time tracking and timesheet generation. It streamlines payroll processing by automatically generating timesheets.

The timesheet approval process in HiveDesk enables managers to review the timesheet for accuracy and completeness before approving for payroll processing. Finally, the time sheet data can be exported from HiveDesk for payroll software.

Frequently asked questions

HiveDesk Chrome time tracker is a Google Chrome extension (or plugin) that runs in your Chrome browser and records time you spend on different tasks and projects. It keeps track of your attendance and work hours.

The Chrome extension is well-suited for tracking time you spend on a particular tab or website. The data is stored in the HiveDesk web portal. You can generate timesheets to pay employees or bill clients. You can also run various reports to analyze employee productivity.

Use the HiveDesk Chrome extension to improve employee engagement, reduce labor costs, avoid payroll headaches, and stay compliant with regulatory requirements.

A Chrome time tracker works only inside the Chrome browser. It can track the time an employee spends on different tasks or projects. However, it cannot track which applications the employee is using on the computer. A Chrome extension cannot automatically take screenshots of the computer.

A desktop application works just alike any other program on your computer. You need to install it by downloading the installer file. Since it runs as a standalone application, it can do much more than the Chrome extension. It can take automatic screenshots of the computer and also track applications the employee is using on the computer.

Chrome extension works seamlessly with Asana. All you need to do is have the Asana project open in the browser window and start the extension. Select the project/task for which you want to record time and start the tracker.
