Overview

In this manual, we will discuss the various functionalities within our Retail POS System.

Use Case

The Retail POS system is used in Golf Shops, and other areas of the Club (Spa, for instance), where retail goods (or services) are transacted.


Content

 

Accessing the Tool

To access the POS,

1)      Click on the POS Icon.

 

2)      A logo will display moving around the screen, click anywhere on the screen to get the user login prompt. Enter your Employee Swipe Id (the number assigned to each user).

 If you are using the Office system to track hours, an additional screen will display prompting the user to select a Job Code.

If the user only has one Job Code assigned to their employee profile, it will display you have successfully logged in.

 

Opening a Ticket

In this section we will discuss the necessary procedures to follow when opening a ticket. 

 1) If you have any open tickets they will be displayed on the Tickets Tab: you can touch or mouse click to open the ticket.

 2) To open a new ticket, click on the green New Transaction button.

Notes:

    • The Tickets screen should be blank before running the End of Shift Report.

    1. The Tickets display can vary depending on what columns you want to see. Columns can be removed or added in CMA. To do so, please navigate to System across the top toolbar and choose Areas.

Double click on the Area in question and navigate to the Open Tickets tab on the left pane. Once on the Open Tickets tab, select/unselect the column headers that you would like to see.

3) Member Lookup - Enter the Member Number or Member Name. If this is not a member, select Guest.

    As you are typing the number or name, the screen will display the results. Highlight the member to be assigned to the ticket and hit Enter, or touch the member name, or mouse click on the name to select.

    

Notes:

 

    • If the Contains button is highlighted, the system will search all name columns displayed on the screen that meets the search criteria including First name, Last name, and Member Type.

Example: if you key in John, the system will display all the names that have John in the first or last name such as John, Johnson, Johnnie, etc, or if you key in the name of the Member Type only those members in that type will display. This is the preferred setting.

    • If the Starts With button is highlighted, the system will only look at the beginning of how the Name is displayed.

Example: if the name is displayed as Aaron, Amy R your search criteria will need be Aaron (not Amy). This is not the preferred setting and often is a support call because a server accidentally hit the Starts With button.

    • The Hide Dependent button gives user the option to filter out the dependents and spouses from the member display.

    • You can sort the screen by each column by touching or clicking the column heading.

Navigating the POS Screen

Note: There are important areas to point out on the POS screen.

  • Top Left Corner – The information viewed here can be customized using the information in the member file. Each sales Area can display different information. There is various member information available for display (this will be discussed in more details in Area setup). If you click on Member Info the system will take you to additional information about the member and family. Prefs is an area you can add information about the member such as favorite clubs, color, etc.  History will show closed tickets from current day and previous days.


    • Top 1st Line – Displays Area and Ticket Number.

  • Top 2nd Line – User can choose what Item Categories to be listed on the bar for quick access.

This setting is found in Manage Item Categories. Select the Item Category in Question and Navigate to the Areas tab.

Then, select the POS_Navigation column (last column to the right); next to the Areas to display the category at the top of the POS screen.

  • Left Middle – Is the Ordering Screen; it lists the items that have been rung up.

  • Middle – The Screen Group Layout is user defined: buttons can be setup to access a single Item, Item Category, Combo, single Modifier, Modifier Group, or another Screen Group.

Employee Time Keeping Actions

Clocking-Out vs Ending a Shift

 Clocking- Out and Ending a Shift have a few differences in the Office system. Clocking- Out simply stops the system from recording time on the employee’s timesheet.  When an employee ends their shift, the system is prompted to stop recording sales under the employee, until the employee clocks back in.  It is important to remember that an employee cannot end their shift without clocking out as well. When an employee clocks back in for the first time after their last End of Shift, this is when the employee’s next “Shift” begins.  During this time, employees have the ability to Clock-out without ending their shift at any time.  This is mostly used to allow employees to clock-out for breaks, lunches, etc. without ending their shift.  This keeps reporting and timekeeping clean as the End of Shift Report will display all sales and transactions completed during the employee’s “Shift” regardless of how many times they clocked out during their shift.  Furthermore, an employee’s timesheet will reflect all instances of when an employee clocked in and out during their shift.

Clocking-Out for Breaks

 As previously mentioned, employees have the ability to clock-out for breaks without ending their shift. However, before an employee can clock-out the Tickets screen must be blank reflecting that the employee has no open tickets.

 

Employees have 2 options when clocking out for breaks.

1) Select Clock Out on the main POS screen.

The system will prompt, Would you like to end your shift? Select No.

2) Select Options on the main POS screen.

Select Clock Out and hit Done.

 

Notes:

      • Again, either of these options will clock the user out but NOT end their shift. Meaning that the employee can clock back in and continue working on the same shift.
      • When clocking back in after a break it is important to remember to clock-in under the SAME Job Code that started the Shift. For instance, if I began my shift under the Food & Beverage Management Job Code and I clocked out for lunch, when I clock back in I need to select the Food & Beverage Job Code again for timekeeping to report properly.
         

End of Shift Processes

Before an employee ends their shift, the Tickets screen must be blank reflecting that the employee has no open tickets.  Close all tickets before proceeding.

  

End of Shift Report 

Once the Tickets display is blank reflecting no open tickets, an End of Shift Report can be printed.  This report can be printed as many times as the user wants at any time.  In addition, the system also keeps an archive of past End of Shift reports for the user to access and print at any time. 

To print an End of Shift Report,

1) Select Options on the main POS screen.

 

2) Verify that the most current Shift is reflected (The system will default to the latest Shift) and select Print Summary.

3) A Print Preview will display showing how the report will look when printed, and the Ticket Device the report will print too. Select Print to continue printing.

4) As previously mentioned, the system keeps an archive of past End of Shift reports for the user to access and print at any time.  To print a past End of Shift Report simply select the appropriate shift in the Shift drop down and select Print Summary.

 

Ending the Shift 

Different operations have different end of shift expectations before an employee can leave; follow the policies and procedures as advised by the club. The Office System requires all tickets to be closed and an End Shift completed. This is the preferred method to ending a shift. Again, please note that an employee cannot end their shift without clocking-out as well. 

To end a shift,

 1) Select Options on the main POS screen.

2) Select the End Shift box (Clock Out will automatically select itself when End Shift is selected). Select Done.

Options

1) Print Timesheet - when selected, the system will provide a report on total hours worked during the shift per Job Code. A Print Preview will also display when this option is selected.  Select Print to continue printing the report.

2) Enter Tip Amount - if you report cash tips for tax purposes, select this option and a prompt will display for the user to enter their cash tips. Click OK when finished.

The tip amount will then display on the main Options screen.

3) Change Job Code - if you mistakenly logged into the wrong Job Code, select this option and a prompt will display asking the user to select the correct Job Code.

4) Clock Out - explained in the Clocking-Out for Breaks section of this document.
