Welcome to the Tanda release notes for July. Here’s what we released this month:


It’s now easier to see who’s at work, who’s finished for the day and who’s on leave

You can now hover over anyone on leave and find out exactly what type of leave they are on.

We’ve also improved the colouring of the cards to make it easier to see who has finished a shift or is on break vs someone who is on leave.

These improvements were based on a suggestion on our feedback board. If you have ideas of things you think we should improve please let us know.

Leave requests submitted by team managers no longer auto-approve

If a manager submits a leave request, previously it would automatically approve, just like it does for general managers and admins. Based on lots of user feedback, we’ve changed the way this works so that if a team manager submits a leave request someone else needs to approve it (another manager, GM, or admin on the account).

You can now subscribe to specific team leave calendars

Subscribing to the leave calendar in your personal calendar (iCal, Google Calendar, Outlook) is great because it means you can keep track of exactly when staff are on leave.

We’ve now added team filtering options on the subscribe page to give you more flexibility around this. So now if you only want to see leave for specific teams you can do so without seeing the leave of every single employee in your Tanda account.

Here’s an example of how it will look in Google Calendar.

To set this up simply click tools > Subscribe to leave calendar on the Leave page, select the teams you want to subscribe to and then copy the link provide. Once you have this link you simply need to add it to your external instructions, here are some links on how to do that for:

Holidays are now listed on staff schedules

If staff have been scheduled to work on holidays these will now be flagged to them on their shift in the app (pictured above) as well as in schedule emails and SMS messages. This removes the risk of your staff not being aware that they are working on a holiday as its listed clearly in their app.

Holidays shown on employee schedules will be the same as those you see when building your schedules, these are based off your settings.
