Safeguarding accounts

For each user account you can define a numeric code (PIN) in the account preferences to protect it. If the account has the PIN set, it is necessary to enter it to log in. An account is so safeguarded so only the user (employee) that knows the PIN can access the account. You can set the PIN in the preferences of every customer account.


You can also define in the settings the cash register applications that will be accessible to users. These settings are valid for all users. For more information and the procedure, please see this chapter.


How do I set up PIN protection for an account?


Click on the selected account to open its preferences. In the section PIN CHANGE click on the PIN field and use the numeric keyboard to enter the four-digit PIN for this account. Finally, remember to activate the option Access always requires PIN and save the settings.




Now go back to the Dotypos main screen and click on LOG OUT. The login dialog now appears. To log in just enter the PIN you have set on the numeric keypad 01 and click on Done 02.




You can set it so after the Dotypos application is closed, a PIN will always be required to log in. So if you exit the application and then run it again, the login dialog shown above appears. You will find this option in Application settings in the section Security settings.
