Gusto will automatically calculate your time worked for the day and log it in your Time Tracking tab.
If you need to manually adjust your time worked, follow the steps below to add, edit, or remove hours.
Gusto will automatically update your tracked hours. You can edit your hours up until the point the hours have been approved or a payroll administrator has processed payroll for that pay period.

Project time tracking is available to our Complete and Concierge customers—at this time, contractors can not track hours to projects (only employees). If you don’t have access to this feature, administrators can upgrade the plan.
When your workday or shift is complete, click Clock Out.
If you’d prefer to manually add hours for the day, click +Add Hours and select your clock in and clock out time period(s) for the day. Then select the project and if applicable, the task you’d like to track time to from the dropdown. If not tied to a specific project, choose no project.
You'll also have the opportunity to enter a note for each block of time. If mandated by your employer, you will be required to leave a note when manually adding hours, and/or to identify if a break was taken.
If you need to delete a project from your Project tracking page, click the x next to the “Total hours” column.
Q: Can a shift span for longer than a day?
A: No. Gusto automatically stops a shift at 12 a.m. and will start a new shift at 12 a.m. that will end once you clock out. If there was a forgotten clock-out, you can edit your hours manually in your Time Tracking tab.
