What are timesheets?

Timesheets are used in different countries* to track the time a particular team member has worked or not worked during a certain period. Timesheets are used by payroll and HR to record the team memberโ€™s working hours.

How can I fill out a timesheet?

Oyster is required to track your work hours, and that is why we ask team members to fill out this form on a monthly basis, before the end of the month. Oyster will then combine your approved time off days with your monthly work hours.

Please submit your absences using the Time Off tool on the Oyster platform. Time off can include any absence type, such as sick days, holidays, parental leave, etc. Our Help Center article will guide you through the steps for requesting time off. Itโ€™s important to keep your time off days always updated on the platform, otherwise your monthly timesheet will not include the correct information.
