How Do I Use Security Devices?

When a user logs in they enter their user number and, optionally, a password. However, you can use devices such as magnetic stripe cards or Dallas touchkeys to make the login process more secure. This section describes how to set up the user to use these devices. The system assumes two things: firstly the user has already been defined (see How Do I Add A New User?) and that the hardware devices are set up for use.

1

Start the Users task from the menu.

2

Find the user you want to secure.

3

Enter the code assigned to the security device into the user's password field, for example the magnetic stripe number.

4

Press the Save button.

5

Repeat Steps 2 to 4 for all users you want to secure.

6

Press the Close button.

When asked for an operator number, scan, swipe or touch the security device to allow the till to read the security number. You will be logged in ready for processing.
