Employee Absence Tracker - Try This Free Excel Template

When your employee, Bob, was a no-show last Thursday, did you know it was his third no-show in five months? Life moves pretty fast, and these absentee patterns can go unnoticed as you scramble to keep all the balls in the air. Businesses need employees to show up on time and ready to work in order to run efficiently. You can reduce disruptive tardies and no-shows with the right tools.  Tracking employee absences helps businesses identify and analyze employee attendance issues and ensures that employees are paid for their work.

How to track employee absences

A shared or private spreadsheet is a common way to track employee attendance. The employees or their supervisors can log attendance, and you can use it to detect problem patterns and help with employee performance reviews.

We've posted a link below to a free Excel spreadsheet for you to track employee absences. Revise and use it for what works for your business. The level of detail you need depends on what you want to track. 

The most common Employee situations businesses include in their absence trackers

  • Personal days
  • Sick leave
  • Vacations
  • No calls/no shows

This simple Excel template is perfect for small to medium-sized teams. Supervisors can use it to track employee absences, including vacations, sick and personal days, and no-calls/no-shows. The cells automatically update with totals as you enter vacation, sick, personal, or other paid time off (PTO) events. The spreadsheet is also great for tracking no-shows and call-outs to uncover habitual offenders.

Track paid time off, get no-show alerts when employees don't clock in, and monitor employee no-shows and late clock-ins. Bob has been a no-show 22 times, as you can see. That guy is a problem!

Tracking employee attendance with Chronotek Pro is simple as 1 – 2 – 3!

  2. Chronotek Pro can GPS track your employees and alert your supervisors when employees clock in or out away from the job site. Pro also has the potential to notify your supervisors when employees leave the job site while still on the clock.  
  3. An easy-to-use scheduling system gives you a clear view of weekly schedules by employee and job. Create schedules with specific times or "Anytime" with durations.
