Configuring Tanda for Sage MicrOpay
Setting up Payroll Integrations
1. Create a ‘Sage MicrOpay Web API’ integration via Settings > Integrations > Payroll Integrations.
2. Ensure that the payroll integration is set to apply. (This can be all staff, specific locations or pay groups - If you are exporting timesheets to another integration, and want the MicrOpay onboarding sync to run in the background, set it to apply to 'All Staff')
3. If you have multiple Payroll Companies in Sage MicrOpay, you will need to create a new 'Sage MicrOpay Web API' payroll integration in Tanda. For each payroll integration, you must configure the Payroll Company Name field in Tanda to be one of the Payroll Companies (Payroll Company Name) in Sage MicrOpay.

In Tanda, enter the relevant integration settings, including the Web API Token, Web API Password, API key and Payroll Company Name.
Note: Please ensure that the Payroll Company Name field in Tanda matches exactly the Payroll Company Name in Sage MicrOpay.

Auto import staff - tick this box to periodically check for new staff in Sage MicrOpay and import them to Tanda.
Suppress Autopay - tick this box to add an "N" character to the 4th column of the employee line record to suppress autopay triggering on import.
