Cash Collected

Cash Collected entries add cash to active and open drawers. The employee can enter a custom reason for the entry as a comment. The intent of a Cash Collected entry is to collect cash in hand from a server and add it to the cash drawer.

Note that a Cash Collected entry executed from a cash drawer is similar to the Collect Cash step during a shift review. Both procedures add a Cash Collection action to the cash drawer and to the Reports > Cash and loss management > Cash activity audit report.

To make a Cash Collected entry

  1. In the cash drawer, tap the Cash In button.

  2. In the Select an action dialog, do the following:

    1. Select the Cash Collected action.

    2. From the Select a server drop-down, choose the server from whom cash will be collected.

    3. Enter a reason for the entry in the Comments field (optional, but recommended).

    4. Tap OK.

  3. In the New cash entry numeric keypad, enter the cash collected amount and tap Done.

As a result, a Cash Collected entry for the amount is made in the cash drawer, with the name of the employee from whom the cash was collected. This information (including the reason) will also be listed in the Reports > Cash and loss management > Cash activity audit report.
