Gift Certs/Credit Notes/Reward Vouchers

Auto-Generate Gift Cert#

If this option is checked on and you sell a gift certificate item, DynaPOS automatically generates a unique gift certificate number. If the option is checked off, you will need to enter a gift certificate number. You would check the option off if you had pre-printed gift certificates.

Auto-Generate CN#

If this option is checked on and you sell a credit note item, DynaPOS automatically generates a unique credit note number. If the option is checked off, you will need to enter a credit note number. You would check the option off if you had pre-printed credit notes.

Ask Expiry Date For Gift Cert#

Ask Expiry Date For CN#

If this is checked on, POS will ask for an expiry date when a credit note is given. The gift certificate must be redeemed before that expiry date.

Ask For Range Of Gift Cert#

When a gift certificate is sold or redeemed and this option is checked on, POS will allow a range of gift certificate numbers to be entered instead of just a single one.

Note: This is only intended for use with preprinted gift certificates. You should not use automatic gift certificate numbers or print gift certificates with this option checked on.

Perform Pre-Gift Checks

When selling a gift certificate, if this option is checked on, POS will make sure that the gift certificates numbers are set up for Pre-Sale. POS will do two checks:

1. The gift certificate number must have been allocated to this location, ready for use.

2. The value of the gift certificate must be the same as the item number being sold. So if you sell a $20 gift certificate, you must select a gift certificate number which already exists and has a value of $20.

Validate Gift Cert/Cr Note/Reward Vchr#

Check this option on to validate that the gift certificate, credit note or reward voucher number is correct and available for use. If you are converting an older system and you have unredeemed gift certificates, you might need to check this option off to allow those gift certificates to be used.

Note: Gift Certificates will always be validated if the Auto-Generate Gift Cert# option is off.

Validate Reward Voucher when Offline

If checked on and a reward voucher is tendered, the number of the voucher is validated.

If head-office is online, only genuine numbers can be redeemed. POS cannot be overridden to accept numbers not found.

If head-office is offline, only reward voucher numbers starting with the defined prefix will be accepted.

Ask For Range Of Reward Voucher#

If checked on, the user will be able to enter a range of numbers when the reward voucher is used, instead of just a single number.

Generate Table Ticket

If this option is checked on, the system will generate a 'ticket' number for each kitchen receipt. This ticket number can be included on the customer's receipt. When the meal is ready, the user calls out this ticket number and the customer can collect their meal.

If you use this option, you should include the <TICKETNUM> keyword in your Receipt Header on the Location tab.

Update Interval

If this is non-zero and the table buttons are being displayed, the buttons will be refreshed at this number of seconds. This is useful in locations where you have more than one POS. You can see whether tables are clean, used, and so on.

Inactive Time

This indicates the length of time (in minutes) before we should warn the user that the table has been inactive. You should only set this if you use Easy Table buttons at the POS. Inactive tables will be shown with *** next to the table number. If the value is zero, the POS will not track inactive tables.
