Shift Reconciliation

Shift Reconciliation is a function for balancing your drawer at the end of a cashier shift once a Register Z is ran.
Shift Reconciliation is located under the “reconciliation” portion of the actions module.

Reconciliations can be set as blind from the “Settings” section of the actions module. A blind reconciliation will only allow cashiers/managers to enter drawer information without seeing expected totals and possible variances.

Once Shift Reconciliations are completed, they can be reviewed via the “Reconciliation Report” in Director at both store and corporate interfaces.


Reconciliation Settings

Reconciliations Settings can be edited via the “Settings” sections of the actions module. 

Once settings have been confirmed, choose “Save”.
