The Time Clock App turns any compatible Android or Apple tablet into a dedicated employee time clock in your workplace. Employees record attendance by entering their unique time clock passcode.
Setting Up the Time Clock App
To register a new time clock, follow the below steps:
In the time clock app - select My business uses Tanda
In your Tanda account (my.tanda.co) - locate your setup code by navigating to Time Clocks > New Time Clock (note: the team manager permission level or higher will be able to see this code)
In the time clock app - enter your setup code, then select the location of the time clock, optionally give the time clock a name (this step helps to identify the time clock on your dashboard)
What tablets are compatible with the app?
The Time Clock App runs on any tablet compatible with:
Apple iOS 9.0 or above
Android version 5.0 or above
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.
FAQ and troubleshooting
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 write down the setup code?
For security, your account will generate a new setup code every 48 hours and the old code will expire. In that time you can use the same code to authenticate as many time clock apps as you wish. You only need to confirm this code when setting up a time clock.
How often will the time clock sync?
The time clock will sync data to our servers every 5 minutes, or each time a time is clocked. This regular sync will look for new employees and any changes made to account settings.
Best practices for using the time clock app:
Turn on app auto-updates on your tablet to ensure you are always on the latest version
Wall mounting the tablet in an area where employees assemble before a shift makes clocking in a habitual part of the work day
Purchasing a tablet to use solely as a time clock will ensure the time clock is always accessible
Ensuring the tablet has stable access to the internet means managers will be able to track attendance in real time
Related: The Tanda Mobile App can also be used to record work hours. By default, the ability to clock in on the mobile app is turned off.
