Register X and Z

REG X is a cashier function used to view current POS shift information.

REG Z is a cashier function used to close the current POS/Cashier shift. The receipt printer report which can be included in this function includes the same information displayed via a REG X.

In fact, the only difference between these two tools is the REG Z closes the shift and resets current data for the next cashier.

An example printout of the information displayed by these two functions can be seen on the right side of this page. Pertinent login, sales totals, tax totals, cashier actions, tender details, department details, department group totals, and cash drawer summary appear as sections in this report.

If you do not intend for your cashier to see this information, these can be set to blind. The cashier Z function can also be enabled/disabled via employee permissions in the Management utility.

Once a REG Z is complete, the cash drawer will open and the cashier will receive the following window -

You can reprint the REG Z report via the “reprint” option if necessary.

Pressing the “ok” button will log the cashier out of the POS in preparation for either a cashier change or reconciliation/cash drawer information entry.
