Subject: LinkSOFT API for Time And Attendance required HRM licence to maintain TNA Devices

Customers using Remote TNA devices require a "SYS and HRM" licence in order to maintain TNA devices. we need to remove the dependency on HRM licence.

To achieve this, we need to move TNA Device setup into the Integration menu.

    2. Configure the TNA device in menu "Integration ~> Integration Setup" to integrate to the TNA device
    3. Configure the API to send data from the Remove LinkSOFT database to the Head Office LinkSOFT payroll database. The Head Office server will need an API licence

    1. For Head Office - 1 x SYS licence, 1 x API Licence and {ActiveEmployees} x HRM Employee Licences
