Exporting from Tanda

Timesheet data can be exported into a file readable by Chris21 and iChris. In Timesheets > Weekly > click the Export to Payroll link:

You will be taken to the Timesheet Export Preview page. Here any errors on your timesheets will be flagged. You can easily check each timesheet and when you are ready to export click Export Timesheets.

The data exported reflects the timesheets that are currently displaying. So, if you are only viewing an individual employee’s timesheets, you can export just their data into Chris21.

When you click the button, a file will be downloaded to your computer. The file has the extension.DAT .

Importing into Chris21

When processing your pay run in Chris21, you need to place your downloaded file to your directory location. Use the File Locations (FLC) form in Chris21 to check or specify an alternative directory for the Timesheet Import input file. 

Note the name of the Timesheet Import input file must match the 'File Name' field specified in the Timesheet Import (TCB) form. Once you've placed the file in the correct location with the correct name, go to the Timesheet Import (TCB) form and run the import.

Chris21's import of your attendance data may take some time. When it’s complete, you can fix any errors that may have occured, then continue to process your pay run.
