In addition to the standard functionality Tanda offers, there are also extra functions you can add to your account, these are called Power-ups. 

To view and enable available Power-ups, go to Settings > Add-ons > Power-ups:


If you don't want to use the SMS function in Tanda to send out Passcodes and Rosters to staff, disable this option and click Update:

When you then send out Passcodes or the Roster, you won't have the SMS option visible. You can turn it back on at any point though.
