How to Start and End Shifts
It is necessary for you to log in with your four-digit PIN or swipe your badge each time you access the POS.
Once you log in, you can clock in and clock out, start and end a financial shift, if necessary, enter customer orders, and accept payments.
Tap on the device. The login screen appears.
Enter your PIN.
Tap Login. The POS home screen appears.
The POS contains two types of shifts, Labor and Financial. All employees clock in at the beginning of a shift, but only employees who enter orders or accept payments must start a financial shift. For restaurants with breaks configured, you can also start and end unpaid breaks.
At the beginning of your shift, from the POS home screen, tap Clock In. The Select Job Code screen appears.
STARTING A FINANCIAL SHIFT
It is necessary to start a financial shift prior to entering orders or accepting payments. When you start a financial shift, End Shift replaces Clock Out on the POS home screen.
NOTE: If the maximum number of users are already assigned to the cash drawer, the drawer is grayed out and you cannot assign yourself to the cash drawer.
If you are the first user assigned to the drawer and the system requires you to enter a starting bank amount, an open cash drawer prompt appears and you must enter a cash amount.
If you are the second user assigned to the drawer, the Tabs screen appears.
(Drawer Checkout Only) Enter the cash amount in the drawer and tap Done.
STARTING A BREAK
Once you clock in, if breaks are required by the restaurant, a Start Break icon is present on the POS home screen. If you have open orders, the system prevents you from starting a break. Those open orders must be assigned to another person before you can start a break.
1. On the POS home screen, tap Start Break.
If a mandatory break time is required, a prompt appears. Tap Yes.
An end break button with a timer appears.
2. Tap to logout.
ENDING A BREAK
You end a break by logging in and tapping End Break. If a mandatory break time is required and you have not been on break for the required time, the system outlines the End Break button in red. You can end a break early with a supervisor’s approval.
