Understanding the Shift report table

Column Description

There are three types of reports.

  • Shift:  A report created when the first POS user opens the day. It shows the sales information for the entirety of a shift. Click a shift report to reveal the User and Drawer reports.
  • User: Shows sales totals and transaction history for a particular POS user. This report is created when an employee clocks in, and closes when they clock out.
  • Drawer: A report created from a device linked to a cash drawer, even if that drawer is virtual and used only for accounting purposes.

Note: If a user takes payment on a device not linked to a cash drawer, information related to payment methods will be stored in the User report. If, however, the device is linked to a cash drawer that's set up to receive the payment method in question, the payment appears in the Drawer report.

Started Date and hour when the report was created.
Ended Date and hour when the report was closed.
Device Active POS device that created the report.
Staff POS user who created the report.
Open Number of accounts that remained open after the Shift report closed.
Total sales Gross earnings based on your sales.
