POS may allow entry of sales after the session or day has been officially ended. This is to cater for problems that might arise from an equipment breakdown, or power failure. Past Sales Entry allows the operator to manually enter sales for a previous day.
Setting up past sales entries
If you'd like to enable this feature, contact your Vista representative. We recommend that this function is usually kept unavailable.
Entering past sales entries at POS
- At POS, select the More > Settings > Past Sales Entry.
Note: If the day (that the user needs access to) has already been closed, then Vista will not allow the user to access Past Sales Entry. The previous day information must be re-opened in CashDesk first. Also, a POS Session must also exist for the day you wish to enter back-dated sales for.
- Enter the pin number for the system administrator (or the appropriate level set by system setting in POS-SECURITY > SecurityPastSalesEntryButton).
- Select the business date to enter Past Sales information. The date should appear and flash at the top of POS.
- Enter or correct past sales information.
- Sign out.
Sign back in to resume normal sales.
