Set up your Activehours account

Getting Started

Thank you for choosing Activehours! Follow the 4 steps below to set up an account and start getting paid on your terms. 

To make the account setup as easy as possible, please make sure that:

  1. You are receiving consistent direct deposits into a checking account with one of our supported banks. Unfortunately, the app doesn't work with prepaid accounts.
  2. You have access to electronic time sheets, or work from a fixed location. Check out our timesheet requirements article for more information.

 

Step 1: Create your profile

Click on the "Join Us" button to create an account:

Enter your email address and add a password. Click "Create Profile" once you have filled in this information.

 

Step 2: Add your paycheck information

After entering your first and last name, you will be prompted to select your pay type. 

 

Hourly:

If you get paid hourly, we'll need to know how your hours are tracked: online or on paper/Excel.

If your hours appear online and you have access to an electronic time sheet, select "Online" and go on to Step 3.

If you only have access to paper or Excel time sheets, we'll need some additional information. 

Please select where you work on a daily basis. Unfortunately, our app doesn't work for work-from-home or varying locations - you will need to have a fixed work location if you are using paper or Excel time sheets.

Next, select the account where your direct deposit is posted. Currently, we only accept checking accounts. If you don't have a checking account with a bank that we support, check out this guide to creating a new account.

Click Next to go on to the Step 3.

 

Ride/Task:

If your pay type is ride/task, select where your direct deposit is submitted and move on to Step 3. If you don't have a checking account with a bank that we support, check out this guide to creating a new account.

Click Next to go on to the Step 3.

 

Salary:

If your pay type is salary, please select where you work on a daily basis. Unfortunately, our app doesn't work for work-from-home or varying locations - you will need to have a fixed work location if you are using paper or Excel time sheets.

Next, select the account where your direct deposit is posted. Currently, we only accept checking accounts. If you don't have a checking account with a bank that we support, check out this guide to creating a new account.

Click Next to go on to the Step 3.

 

Step 3: Connect to your bank

To find your bank from our list of supported banks, click on the magnifying glass in the top right of the screen and start typing the name of your bank. 

If your bank is not on the list, unfortunately that means that we don't support it. Check out this guide to creating a new account with a supported bank.

 

Click on your bank name, then enter your online banking username and password.

Click Connect Securely. 

 

Step 4: Confirm your employer

On this screen, you will need to find and confirm your employer.

If your employer is not listed, add them as a new employer.

Click Confirm. 

Step 5: Enter your bank information

Enter your bank's routing number, or choose it from the list. 

 

From the dropdown, choose the checking account where you receive direct deposits from your job.

Click Submit.

 

You're almost done...

If you chose electronic time sheets above, you'll be asked add a time sheet or set a reminder. You can skip this step by clicking Skip in the top right corner. 

Congrats!

You've created an account with Activehours! Next, we will verify your bank account and payroll information.

 

Keep an eye out for emails from us in the next few days -- we may need you to provide additional information to finish setting up your account.
