Why Update Rosters?

This has been a very popular question from our customers. If it ain't broke, don't fix it right? The success and the quality of our product is the result of our continuous pursuit to produce superior software. We built our original rostering software 7 years ago. In that time, Tanda has grown and a lot of our customers have grown with us. With this came a lot of requirements that classic rosters was simply not built to handle.

We released our new rostering software in 2019, and now it has been a little over a year it is time to say goodbye to our previous version of rosters. It is not feasible for us to maintain two versions of software, and there has been no new functionality or bug fixes for classic rosters since January 2020.

Going forward, lots of new functionality is being added to our new rosterting product. There's already great new features like being able to view multiple weeks or months at a time, more statistics are immediately available on the roster (like wage % of revenue & on-costs).

We understand change is hard, and we have been listening to all of the feedback our customers have given us to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible. Please reach out if you have any concerns about using our new rostering software!

The week view doesn't look the same as classic! How can I fix it?
