One of the most common questions we receive relates to how much battery the Timesheet Mobile app uses and whether it drains battery excessively. Timesheet Mobile's app makes use of the latest and most efficient methods to monitor employee locations while they arrive or leave work sites and only reports their location when the employee punches in, punches out or uses the check point feature.
Timesheet Mobile tests each version of the app before it is release. In addition, employees use the app daily as part of constant monitoring and testing. Through this testing, the Timesheet Mobile app has been measured to use about as much battery as a typical email app - even when the app is used to punch in/out 10 or more times per day and traveling through multiple geo fences.
If you or your employees have questions about the battery performance, here is how to check on how much Timesheet Mobile and other apps are using on your phones:
If you do encounter a case in which the Timesheet Mobile app appears to be draining significantly more battery than other apps, make sure that the app has been updated to the latest version. If that does not address the issue, capture a screen shot of the battery use and contact our customer support for further assistance.
