How can we help?

Track your time worked in Gusto

This feature is available to Complete and Concierge customers - administrators can upgrade the plan at anytime.

If you’re an hourly W-2 employee with access to a Gusto account, you can clock in and out during each shift or manually enter and edit hours for each day worked.

Track your hours

  1. Sign in to your Gusto account.
  2. Click Clock In on the Time Tracking tile on your Dashboard.
  3. Click Clock Out when your workday or shift is complete.
  4. 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.
    • 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.

Gusto will automatically calculate your time worked for the day and log it in your Time Tracking tab.

Review, edit, or remove hours tracked

If you need to manually adjust your time worked, follow the steps below to add, edit, or remove hours.

  1. Click View Pay Period in the Time Tracking tile on your Dashboard or click the Time Tracking tab.
  2. Confirm the pay period selected is the one for review.
  3. To edit, click the pencil icon next to the day of the week.
  4. Here you can add, edit, or delete misreported hours as needed.
    • If mandated by your employer, you'll be required to leave a note when making edits to your 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 - at that point administrators will need to make any adjustments required.


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.

Q: Can hours for the future be entered in?

A: No.
