Undoing cash entries

You can undo cash entries in a cash drawer from either the Toast POS device or the Toast administrative back-end. For example, you made a Pay Out entry to pay for restaurant cleaning supplies and took out money from the cash drawer; however, you never purchased the supplies so you want to undo the Pay Out entry and replace the cash in the drawer.

When you undo a cash entry, the original cash entry remains listed in the cash drawer and a new undo cash entry is added. Also, the cash drawer's current balance is adjusted to account for the undone entry. For example, if you undo a Pay Out entry of $20, the original $20 Pay Out entry remains listed in the cash drawer, a new $20 Undo Pay Out entry is added, and the cash drawer's balance is increased by $20.

You can undo the following cash entries:

  • Cash Collected ‐ When you undo a Cash Collected entry, the system posts a Tip Out entry for the same amount.

  • Tip Out ‐ When you undo a Tip Out entry, the system posts a Cash Collected entry for the same amount.

  • Cash In ‐ When you undo a Cash In entry, the system posts a Cash Out entry for the same amount.

  • Cash Out ‐ When you undo a Cash Out entry, the system posts a Cash In entry for the same amount.

  • Cash Drop ‐ When you undo a Cash Drop entry, the system posts an Undo Cash Drop entry for the same amount.

  • Pay Out ‐ When you undo a Pay Out entry, the system posts an Undo Pay Out entry for the same amount.
