Square Team App for Team Members

The Square Team App allows team members the ability to see and manage important information across all of Square's Staff products — all from their own iPhones or Android devices.

Within the Square Team App, team members can clock in and out (depending on your permissions), view hours worked, view upcoming shifts, request time off, message co-workers, and manage your availability. With Square Payroll, team members have the ability to create a Square Payroll account, view pay stubs, update your personal information, change direct deposit payment method and more.

Note: Each team member is required to accept an invite to that Square business to access the Square Team App.

Get Started

In order to log into the Square Team App, you need an invite from your employer. When you receive that invite via email or SMS message, you will be prompted to create a password associated with your contact information. If you have already created a Square account with that email address or phone number, you’ll need to  login using your existing password.   

If you don’t have an invite, you’ll want to make sure your employer adds an email address or phone number and permissions to your team member profile. By doing so, you’ll receive an invitation to create a Square Team account that can be used with the Square Team App.

Note: Invitations expire 30 days after being sent. If your invite expires, you can request a new invite to be sent from your employer. Team member profiles cannot share an email address or phone number within the same Square account and must have unique contact information on file.ent.

App Layout

Once you have downloaded the Square Team App, you will be able to utilize a number of different features throughout the workday. You can find information on how to navigate the Square Team App below.

Main Home Screen

From the main screen, you can view your hours worked and estimated earnings for the current pay period, clock in/out, and view your shifts. When you clock in, you will also have the ability to tap the Add note button to include a note with your shift details for the day. Note: Estimated earnings are based on data entered by your employer — this is your estimated gross weekly earnings and may not reflect actual wages to be paid. It doesn’t include commissions, deductions or taxes.

Tap the Clock In, Take Break, or Clock Out buttons from the Home screen of the Square Team App to track your time. You can also tap the Add note button when you clock in to leave a note to the account owner or manager(s). If your employer has turned on cash tip tracking, you’ll be prompted to provide the amount of cash tips you earned during your shift before clocking out or switching jobs. Your employer will need to enable permissions to allow you to track time from the app.

Note: Depending on the Time enforcement settings your employer has set through Square Shifts, you may not be able to clock-in early or end your break(s) early. If either or both of these settings are enabled, you will only be able to clock-in once your shift starts and will need to take your break(s) in their entirety.


Once you download the Square Team App, you will see a speech bubble icon labeled Messages. Tap + to compose a message, or view the list to see your recent received and sent messages to fellow team members, managers, or the business owner.

If your employer is subscribed to Shifts Plus, you can also request edits for past shifts, including changes to  job title, clock-in time, clock-out time, breaks, and notes associated with your shift.


From the Schedule section of the app, you can also view your schedule and shift details, including hours scheduled and what job title your shift is scheduled for. In addition, by selecting More from the homepage, you can update your Availability and Notifications associated with your schedule.
