Run TSheets as a Desktop App

Published

Here’s a cool tip for all our Mac users out there: Run TSheets as a desktop app.  This allows for easier and quicker time tracking access.

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Download and install Fluid
  2. Launch Fluid and create a site specific browser with the settings pictured below (you’ll want to point this to your TSheets account URL, or you can use https://app.tsheets.com/ip/)
  3. If you’ve done everything right, you’ll get a success message.  Click ‘Launch Now’
  4. From here you have two options. 1) run as a desktop app from the dock or 2) run as an app from your toolbar.  If you choose option 1, you’re finished.  For option 2, keep reading…
  5. From the toolbar of the app you just launched, select the main app menu item and choose ‘Convert to MenuExtra SSB’
  6. Click ‘OK’ to continue
  7. You’ll now see the app shows up in your toolbar (along the top, close to your clock)

Hopefully you’ll find this as useful as I do (I use it more often than our main web application).

Let us know what you think.
