Kounta is a cloud based Point of Sale system which you can integrate with your Tanda account to feed in your POS data to track sales, create costed rosters and use as a Time Clock. 

You can have more of a read about Kounta & Tanda on their Add-ons page.

Kounta Requirements

  • In order to integrate Tanda with Kounta you will need to have the Manage or Extend level account, which gives you access to Add-ons.
  • Within Kounta, you'll need to enable two Add-ons before you can integrate with Tanda:

To access this, in Kounta, in the left sidebar select Add-ons:

Time & Attendance App in Kounta

On this first page, you should see the Time & Attendance App:

Hover over it to click on the orange plus icon:

Then click Enable on the next page:

Tanda App in Kounta

Back in the Add-ons front page, you should see Tanda, if not select the Category drop down in the top right corner and select Time and Attendance:

Repeat the same process as before by clicking on it and then selecting Enable. 

Tanda Requirements

Once you've setup the integration in Kounta, you can connect it in Tanda. Go to Settings > Add-ons > Sales & Revenue:

Click on the Kounta tab and then click the green Connect to Kounta button:

If you're logged into Kounta already, Kounta will just ask for authorisation to link the two accounts, otherwise it'll ask you to login (with your Kounta details). 

You will then go back to Tanda where it'll show that the two systems are connected.

  • Using Kounta as a Time Clock will automatically be selected, this allows your staff to clock in and out on your Kounta terminal which comes into Tanda in a Timesheet. You can deselect this though if you want to use a separate tablet as your Time Clock, in which case you would just setup your Time Clock. Have a look at Staff below for more information on this. 
  • Include sales tax in revenue totals is deselected by default. This means Tanda will attempt to deduct sales taxes from your totals when importing sales data. If you don't want us to do that, just tick the box.

Click Save Kounta Settings at the bottom to save the integration. Tanda will then import in real-time your sales data which you can use for Rosters, Reporting and on the Dashboard. Have a look at the Import your Revenue Data article for more information. 

If you ever need to remove Kounta from Tanda, just click Disconnect Kounta in this same screen in the top right corner:


If you want to use Kounta as a Time Clock, you'll need to have your staff in Kounta so they can clock-in. Just add their name as a user and a pin will be assigned to them. You can check out this article by Kounta if you need more information. 

Staff can then be imported from Kounta to Tanda, but it might be easier to import from your Payroll & Accounting system into Tanda. You can check out Add or Import Staff for more information. 

If you would like further assistance please contact Tanda Support by clicking on the blue chat icon in the bottom right corner, on 1300 859 117 or support@tanda.co
