Lightspeed Kounta POS 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 Lightspeed Kounta POS & Tanda on their Add-ons page.

Lightspeed Kounta POS Requirements

  • In order to integrate Tanda with Lightspeed Kounta POS you will need to have the Manage or Extend level account, which gives you access to Add-ons.

  • Within Lightspeed Kounta POS, you'll need to enable two Add-ons before you can integrate with Tanda:

To access this, in Lightspeed Kounta POS, in the left sidebar select Features:

Time & Attendance App in Lightspeed Kounta POS

On the features tab, you should see the Time & Attendance App:

Then click Enable on the next page:

Tanda App in Lightspeed Kounta POS

Back in the Integrations front page, you should see Tanda:

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

Tanda Requirements

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

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

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

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

  • Using Lightspeed Kounta POS as a Time Clock will automatically be selected, this allows your staff to clock in and out on your Lightspeed 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 Lightspeed 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 Lightspeed Kounta POS from Tanda, just click Disconnect Lightspeed Kounta POS in this same screen in the top right corner:

Staff

If you want to use Lightspeed Kounta POS as a Time Clock, you'll need to have your staff in Lightspeed Kounta POS 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 Lightspeed Kounta POS if you need more information. 

Staff can then be imported from Lightspeed Kounta POS 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.
