Gusto has partnered with April to offer two free tools to help employees better plan their taxes for more financial clarity:
Employees enrolled in Gusto time tracking can clock in, clock out, and manage their hours at the touch of a button.
If you're a domestic contractor, you can also track your hours, however, you won’t be able to use the Gusto Wallet mobile app to track your time.
You can only track hours or turn on location sharing for an active pay period.
Track a break
Gusto will automatically calculate your time worked for the day and log it.Gusto will automatically calculate your time worked for the day and log it in your timesheet for your manager or admin to review and approve.
You can edit your hours until the point the hours have been approved or a payroll administrator has processed payroll for that pay period—at that point, administrators will need to make any adjustments required.
If you need to manually adjust your time worked, follow the steps below to add, edit, or remove hours in Gusto Wallet:

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 Gusto Wallet or in the Time Tracking section of your online Gusto account.
Q: Can hours for the future be entered in?
Employees with Gusto-managed benefits have read-only access to information on their medical, dental, vision plans and tax-advantaged accounts (e.g. HSA, FSA) brokered by Gusto.
Under the “Benefits” tab, employees can view their member ID, group ID and full plan documents, as well as balances for tax-advantaged accounts.
Employees enrolled in a time off policy can request, cancel, and view their time off balances and requests in the Gusto Wallet mobile app or from your web browser.
Request time off
Your company's payroll administrators will be notified of your request by email. Once the request has been approved or declined, you'll receive an email notification.
Cancel a time off request
Follow these steps to cancel a time off request from your Gusto Wallet mobile app.
Heads up: If any portion of your paid time off has already been processed on payroll, you'll instead need to reach out to your company's payroll administrator to make changes.
Edit a time off request
To change a time off request, cancel the current one with the steps above and then create a new request.
Employees can use the paycheck splitter to divide their direct deposit and automatically route their paycheck into multiple accounts—whether that’s between a savings goal, a spending account, or external bank account(s).
For example, an employee can allocate $25 from each paycheck to their Gusto savings goal for a “Rainy Day Fund,” $50 to their external bank account, and the remainder of their paycheck to their Gusto spending account.
From the paycheck splitter, employees can add and remove bank accounts, change dollar or percent allocation to each, and drag and drop accounts to order them the way they’d like. Once saved, paycheck splitter changes take effect on the employee’s next paycheck, as long as that payroll hasn't already been processed by the employer.
Employees on the mobile app have the exclusive ability to access Pay Insights within the Pay tab, which shows the patterns and details of their past paychecks and insights for future paychecks. Pay Insights includes:
Your changes will take effect the next time your employer runs payroll. On or after the check date, view your paystub and review your withholding under “Employee Taxes Withheld.”
Employees can easily view their personal tax and employee documents within the app, including W-2s and W-4s.
Employees can edit their personal details including their preferred name, date of birth, phone number, home address, and emergency contact. Employees can also view their full legal name, date of birth, and some other information.
