Open/close cash register

clip0364This button opens or closes the cash register. The period between opening and closing the register is considered one shift. The button changes its title and function in accord with the actual cash register status. If the cash register is closed, click to open it. If the cash register is open, click to close it and complete the shift. According to individual shifts you can, for example, display the sales overview.

When closing the cash register you can show the Cash stocktake report and enter the actual numbers of banknotes and coins, or indeed meal vouchers. The cash register calculates total cash from the entered numbers. If in the relevant printing task you activated the option Automatic printing of closings, after closing the cash register it will print the Z-report with an overview of sales. Individual Z-reports can be numbered, the numbering can be set up in the POS settings.

The cash register system works on shifts. A shift is the time from when the cash register is opened until it is closed. Before you can start charging, the cash register has to be opened and the appropriate initial cash entered. When the crew stops working, close the cash register and enter the volume of cash again. This divides orders among individual shifts. Of course, you do not have to close the cash register if there is no need to. You can use individual shifts for filtering overviews of sales and various data reports in Dotypos Cloud.

You can open or close the cash register just by clicking on the button REGISTER OPEN or REGISTER CLOSURE in tile menu Dotypos. The button changes its appearance based on whether the cash register is open or closed.
