Tills - Profile - Settings 1

These settings control the look and feel of DynaPOS and are grouped into a profile. Once a profile has been defined for a till, subsequent tills can use the same profile. This makes changing multiple tills easier. If you change the profile settings then all tills using the same profile will automatically change to the new settings.

Profile Description

A description about this profile.


Swipe Card Logon

Some locations may use swipe cards or touch buttons for added security. The card or button number would be set up as the password for the user. If this flag is checked on, then when DynaPOS asks for an operator number, the user can swipe their card and it is compared against their password, not the user code.

Ask Password At Logon

If this option is checked on, the user has to logon on with their user code and their password, instead of just their user code.

Auto Logoff

If checked on then current operator is logged off when the transaction is completed.

Allow Item Exchange

There is an option on DynaPOS to allow an item in a sale to be exchanged. This option is only available if this field is checked on.

Record Time Per Item

If this option is checked on, DynaPOSTouch records the time that each line of a transaction was entered. By default, the option is checked off and the time associated with each line of the transaction is the time the sale was paid or first put on hold. This should not be checked on if you do laybys or COD.

Ask Customer At Start

If this option is checked on, DynaPOSTouch asks for a customer number at the start of the sale. The customer number is not mandatory at this point but by entering it here you are giving the system further information for calculating sell prices as items are added to the transaction.

Ask Operator At Start

If this option is checked on then when a transaction is started, DynaPOSTouch asks for the salesperson that made the sale. If this option is checked off, the current operator is assumed to be the salesperson. If this option is checked on then when a sale is held and later recalled by a different operator, additional items are added under the original salesperson.

Ask Operator Per Item

If this option is checked on, every time an item is added to a sale in DynaPOSTouch the operator is asked for the salesperson who actually sold the item. By default, the option is checked off and the operator currently logged in is associated with the item. You should not check on Ask Operator At Start and this option at the same time.

Ask Sale Note

If checked on then DynaPOS asks for a comment about the sale when the Pay button is pressed.

Check Interrupted Trans

An interrupted sale occurs when one user is making a sale and steps away from the POS and a second user presses the Logon button to start another sale. the first sale is 'interrupted' and put on hold. When the first user logs back on to the POS, the 'interrupted' transaction is recalled automatically.

To use this feature, check this option on.

Hide Inactive Buttons

In this option is checked on, buttons that are not being used will be hidden. If the option is checked off, buttons will be disabled from use.

Ask Float At Start Of Day

In this option is checked on, a start of day process will occur. When a Z-Read is done, the POS is considered closed. Next time a user logs on, the system will ask for the float to start the next shift.

Track Logon

POS will track the logon and logoff events and will then be visible in Electronic Audit.

OK Button Increments Qty

If checked on, the OK button will increment the quantity of the current item on POS by one. If it is checked off, the quantity will not be changed.

Multiple EFTPOS Payments

If checked off, POS will only accept one EFTPOS payment. If the option is checked on, POS will allow multiple EFTPOS payments. For each payment, you will need to enter the amount of the payment. Once an EFTPOS payment has been added, you cannot press the Exit button on POS to go back to sale mode. You must complete the transaction.

Ask Trade Date

If this is checked on, POS will ask for the trading date at the start of each shift.

If the option is checked off, POS will calculate the trading date based on the current date/time and the Start Of Day option set on the System tab in System Settings.

Ask Operator Cash Drawer

Use Menu Item Countdown

Item Menu functionality in Bookings is where items in the booking are automatically added to the sale if the item matches the menu selected on the till (for example  BRK for breakfast). When checked off, current functionality is maintained and any item selected that does not belong to the currently selected menu will be rejected with an error message.
