After creating a cash float in the Back Office, you’ll need to configure its settings to assign the float to a physical cash drawer, POS device, and/or POS users.
- From the main navigation menu, go to Configuration > Devices > Float management.
- On the Float management page, select Edit next to the cash float you want to configure.
- Apply the desired settings to the cash float. To learn about each setting, see the Cash float settings table.
- Click Update to save changes.
Cash float settings
|Cash float Name||Cash float Name||Rename your cash float, if desired.|
|Physical drawer||Printer to use to send commands to the cash drawer||
If using a physical cash drawer connected to a receipt printer via a cable, select the printer from the drop-down menu to link its drawer to the cash float. After selecting a printer, additional settings will appear:
|Float management||Float counting mode||
Controls the behavior around counting the float at the POS:
|The float amount when opening the user's bank (can be 0)||The default amount that the float will be opened for at the POS unless a user counts and enters the actual float amount.|
|Allocate non-cash payments to this float instead of the user's bank||Adds non-cash payments to the Drawer report and automatically opens the cash drawer when a non-cash payment is accepted.|
|Connections||Devices allowed to use this cash float||Define which POS devices this float is associated with.|
|Employee groups allowed to use this cash float||Define which user groups’ orders will contribute to the float amount.|
|Employee groups that can manage this cash float||Define which user groups can open the float.|
Now that you’ve set up cash float settings from the Back Office, you can use the cash drawer or user wallet feature on the POS. Using this feature enables you to count your cash before and after a shift. See Counting a cash float for more information on how to use a cash drawer with the Restaurant POS app.
