You don't need an expensive tablet, but for the best user experience, we recommend a tablet that is 7 inches or above in size.


Is there a way to 'lock' the Tanda app to the tablet screen?

Yes, see this guide for further details on making Tanda the default application on your tablet.

Can you share or use the setup code more than once?

For security, your account will generate a new setup code every 48 hours. In that time you can use the same code to authenticate multiple Time Clock Apps. By default, only the Team Manager or higher permission levels are able to see the setup code in their account.
