Use Homebase for Square time tracking or time clock. The integration allows you to integrate Square sales to Homebase, transfer your employees and locations from Square to Homebase, and send Homebase time cards to Square.
This integration is only available to regular Square customers that are utilizing the Employee Management features. Homebase is currently not able to be used on the Square Register. If you aren’t sure what type of account you have, contact Square for support ( 1-855-700-6000, Monday through Friday, 6 AM to 6 PM PT ).

What data syncs?
Homebase will allow owners, managers, and employees to view their sales data (with certain restrictions). This data is updated in near real-time and is accessible from either the web dashboard or the Homebase mobile app
Square sales data in Homebase will report as Net Sales.
If you have multiple stores Homebase will display that data individually.
Homebase can also import credit card tips from Square.
Locations can be synced from Square to Homebase.
You can manually import locations by visiting the Homebase web dashboard by clicking on Settings > Locations > Import Locations from Square.
If you have existing locations in Homebase, make sure that they have the same name with the exact same spelling as the locations in Square. In Square, the location names are called “Nicknames.” They will then be synced together.
Employees should be entered into Square. Employee names and email address will be transferred into Homebase. You can edit employee information by visiting the Homebase Team page.
Time cards created using the Homebase time-clock will be synced between the two systems.
Please note: only completed time cards are synced. So, if a user clocks in on Homebase, they also need to clock out on Homebase; at which time, the time cards are synced to Square.
