Accessing the cash drawer back-end operations

The cash drawer back-end operations are available in the Cash Drawer History report, which is a section of the Sales Report. The Cash Drawer History report lists all the active cash drawers in the restaurant. The same set of cash drawer back-end operations is available for each cash drawer.


Before issuing a back-end cash drawer operation, make sure that you are viewing the appropriate cash drawer.

The Cash entries section of the Cash Drawer History report contains the Update Entries drop-down menu, as shown in this example:
