Square Team App for Team Members

The Square Team app gives 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 Team app, team members have the ability to clock in/out, view hours worked, view upcoming shifts, request time off, and manage their availability. With Square Payroll, team members have the ability to create your Square Payroll account, view pay stubs, update their personal information, change direct deposit payment method and more.

Get Started

In order to log into the Team app, you need an invite from your employer. When you receive that invite via email, you will be prompted to create a password associated with your email address. If you have already created a Square account with that email address, 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 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.

Remote Clock In/Out

As a team member, you will only be able to clock in/out remotely for a shift or break if your employer has enabled the feature in the online Square Dashboard. You will still have the ability to view shifts, timecards, and estimated pay if this setting is not enabled.

You’ll be able to clock in and out, take a break, or switch jobs from the Home screen of the Team app.

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.

View Messages

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.

From the Shifts > Timecards section of the app, you can manage your shifts by keeping an eye on your hours worked and breaks taken. You will have the option to tap on a specific timecard to view the regular, overtime, and total hours worked that shift, along with past notes associated with the timecard in question. 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 Shifts > 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.
