Tanda supports both a flat-file (
.csv) and API timesheet integration with CloudPayroll. For a seamless integration, it is recommended to use the API integration.
Integrating with CloudPayroll:
Connecting and configuring your integration
Ensure you have connected your payroll system in Tanda. This can be done via Settings > Integrations > Payroll Integrations.
Importing staff to Tanda
When using CloudPayroll Web API integration:
Navigate to Workforce > Staff > + Add Staff, next to import bulk staff import from: CloudPayroll API
New staff from CloudPayroll will automatically populate in Tanda.
Configuring your timesheet export
Configuring payroll when you are using a Tanda managed award template.
Navigate to Compliance and click Manage next to your Award Template.
Select Get a CloudPayroll API Configuration Report
This will load a list of all of the payment codes required to map the award template to the Cloudpayroll file:
For these codes to link correctly you will need to use the exact same name, multiplier and wage type in CloudPayroll.
Configuring payroll when you are using your own custom award rules.
Navigate to Compliance > Custom Award Rules and click Manage.
Click on your first award rule and scroll to the bottom of the award rule to step 4 (b).
In the export name field, enter the name of the corresponding payment code from CloudPayroll and select the name of the award template that you would like this rule to be linked to.
Integrating leave requests and balances
To integrate leave requests you will need to ensure that your leave types in CloudPayroll have been mapped to their corresponding leave type in Tanda.
Navigate to Leave > Leave Types and click on your first leave type.
In the export name field, you will need to enter the leave code from CloudPayroll.
If leave loading is paid as a separate code in CloudPayroll this should be entered into the Secondary Export name field.
Both versions of the CloudPayroll integration do not include leave balance syncing so this will be managed separately. You can opt to either accrue your leave balances in Tanda or import your leave balances into Tanda via
.csv. Both of these processes are outlined in this guide.
Tanda can link timesheet hours to cost centres in CloudPayroll via the payroll cost tracking code. To set your payroll cost tracking codes in Tanda, navigate to Workforce > Teams and click edit on the relevant team.
Under advanced options, you can enter your payroll cost tracking code:
Once the code has been set, any hours worked against that team will be exported with this code.
Exporting Timesheets from Tanda
Once you've approved all your Timesheets and you're ready to export, go to Timesheets > Weekly/Fortnightly > click the Preview & Export button:
You'll then go through to the Timesheet Export Preview page. If there are any errors in your Timesheets, this will be flagged so you can fix before exporting.
Exporting via Web API
When you're ready to export click Export to Payroll Software within the Preview page:
Exporting via flat file in
If you're using CloudPayroll flat file, a
.csv file will be downloaded to your computer. Import
In CloudPayroll, choose the option to upload timesheets, rather than entering them. Choose the
.csv file that you downloaded from Tanda and click upload timesheets.
When it’s complete, check for any errors and then continue to process your pay run.
