Exporting from Tanda

Timesheet data can be exported into a file readable by Attaché. Once you have approved all your timesheets and configured Tanda for your payroll, you can now export the timesheets to Xero.

In Timesheets > Weekly > click the Export to Payroll link:

You will be taken to the Timesheet Export Preview page. If there are any errors in your timesheets, this will be flagged so you can fix it in order to export the timesheet.

When you are ready to export click Export to Payroll Software:

When you click the button, a file will be downloaded to your computer. The file has the extension.inp but is structured as a plain text file.

Tanda exports files that meet the Attaché T6 Disk File Entry specification. Contact your Attaché consultant if you are not sure what version you are using. Contact Support at Tanda at support@tanda.co if you use a different format which you would like to see supported.
