Clock-In Times and Clock-Out Times

Whether you pay to the minute or round to the nearest 15, you can customise Tanda to suit your business.

When you first create your Tanda account, these settings are configured by default to round the times within 15 minutes of the rostered time.

Rounding of times (minutes)

This specifies the time in which you wish to round times. This can represent increments to round to, or a time frame if used in combination with one or both of the following settings. You are also able to set different clock in and clock out rounding times.

There are Four Ways to Configure Timesheet Rounding

1 Rounding to the Nearest X Minute

This automatically rounds employee start/end times to the nearest minute chosen in the step above (i.e 10 mins).
e.g.
Employee X clocks in at 7:49 am by using the smart clock-in rounding Tanda will round their start time up to 7:50 am. Likewise for clock outs.
Employee X then clocks out at 2:09 pm it will round the finish time to 2:10 pm.

2. Rounding + Smart Clock-in/out Rounding

When an employee clocks in/out their time will be rounded UP/DOWN X number of minutes.
e.g. Employee X clocks in at 7:52 am their time will be rounded to 8:00 am. Likewise with clock outs if Employee X clocks out at 3:07 pm their time will round down to 3:00 pm.

3. Rounding + Smart Clock-in/out Rounding + Round Clock in/out to rostered times
If an employee is rostered, clock ins/out within 10 minutes of its start/end time will be rounded up/down to that time. All other clock ins/outs will not be rounded therefore if your employees are not rostered this setting will not effect them.

4. Rounding + Round Clock in/out to rostered times
If an employee is not rostered, their clock ins/outs will be rounded to the nearest 10 minutes. If an employee is rostered, clock ins/outs within 10 minutes of the end time will be rounded up/down to the rostered time. All other clock ins/outs will be rounded to the nearest 10 minutes.

Advanced

Clock-ins that occur closer together than this number of minutes will be treated as duplicates and handled differently by the timesheet. This is useful for cases such as:

  • Nick clocks out to go on his break
  • A co-worker asks Nick to come take a look at something
  • Nick clocks back in
  • Nick spends 10 minutes looking at this document and providing feedback on it
  • Nick clocks out again to actually take his break

In this case, the initial clock out, and subsequent clock in, are ignored. The final clock out (when Nick actually starts his break) are used.

Set this setting to 0 (zero) to disable it. In this case, no action will be considered a duplicate (all actions will be recorded separately). 5 minutes is a sensible default for most work environments:
