If you are a small business owner or human resources professional you may find yourself keeping several Excel files. Noting down employee work hours and calculating payment amounts. Since money is involved, this process should be done very carefully. We have prepared this employee attendance tracker and payroll excel template to smooth this process.

Just input your employees, daily wages, and days they worked/not worked. The template will give you a summary of the total payments and salary of each employee for that month and year. You can manage the timesheet with easy drop-down boxes while color-coding makes it easier to follow.

Employee Attandance Tracker Sections:


It is advised to start with the settings sheet as in this sheet you will define information such as employee name, contact info, job, daily rates ($). In addition, the settings section of this payroll Excel template allow you to create your own labeling by letting you input the status, sign for that status, paid/non-paid options and payment percentage.

Your input in this section later on will be needed in the dashboard to easily create payrolls.



After completing the settings part of the payroll Excel template by quick data input, you may navigate to the dashboard sheet and start by selecting the relevant month and year from the header dropdowns. Following that, choose your employees and their jobs from the dropdown menu from the previously defined status.

Once you select the work status for each day you desire your employee time tracker will be completed. Remember that on the dropdown menu, you will see the ‘sign’ you have defined in the settings section!



We have left tax laws and regulations out of this payroll template’s scope. Because tax rates and rules change from country to country. But you can add taxes on top of the template’s output.

    impossible to download even the free version, because the link received in the email leads to the main site of products… this company is ludicrous
    (unfortunatelly there is also no choice for zero stars)

    It doesn’t seem to store data or refresh when changing the month.

      Hi Roy,

      First of all, thanks for your time to spend writing a review!

      When you change the month from the dropdown button, the cell which shows total pay will also change automatically. We have not made year restrictions in that way our users can use the template for their desired time intervals.

      Thank you for your request. If there are any updates, we will consider to creating a database for data storage.

    Horrible to install. No instructions for specific download. No way to contact anyone.
    Find another source.

      Hello Carla, thank you for taking your time and explain your problem to us. We are sorry you had such an unpleasant encounter within and totally get how it can be frustrating to not receive what you were expecting.

      It’s our priority to foster this order-receiving process but in case you never receive an e-mail or template, we immediately send the template you paid for it without keeping you wait too much. Because you can always contact us on our Live Chat service or drop a mail which we will respond in less than one business day.

      – First of all, in zip file, normally you should have; 1 Excel Template File + 1 Password.txt file + 1 PDF contains our company info.

      – Be sure that you have Microsoft Office and compatible Excel Version in your computer because it is quite weird to not see the template in zip file and it would be normal only if you do not have an Excel.

      In case you already have those above, we have just sent the template directly to your email address.

      Hope this helps Carla, looking forward to hearing from you soon.
