The Time Clock App can run on various different devices. The first step is to figure out where you would like the Time Clock to run - this can be on a tablet, on your computer or in a browser, we can also lease you a tablet. We recommend having a dedicated device to run the App so your staff are able to clock in and out with no disruptions. 

Add a Time Clock

To add a Time Clock to your account, go to the New Time Clock page in Tanda. 

You can access this by going to Settings in the top right corner > Time Clocks > click on the green New Time Clock button:

Or if you're in the Dashboard, in the Time Clocks widget, click on the "+ New" next to the heading.

Users with Admin permission will have access to this page but you can also give other permissions such as Payroll Officer, General Manager, and Team Manager to have access on the setup code. You just have to configure it on the Settings > Permissions > Add time clocks field.

Choose your Device

Click on the tab for the Time Clock you want to setup and then follow the instructions:

For Android, we recommend using either a Samsung Tab A or B has our testing has found these devices are the best value for money in regards to reliability and lifespan. 

If you're running in your Web Browser, we recommend Chrome.

Setup Device

Tablets we provide will arrive already linked with your account, but if you're using your own device, once you have downloaded the App, click on My business uses Tanda and then use the unique Setup Code in the New Time Clock Setup page that you were in before.

Next, give your Time Clock a Nickname and assign it to one of your Locations. This will help you identify exactly where staff have clocked in or out.

Now your setup is complete, click on Start clocking in to go to the Time Clock.
