Assign cashier responsibility

Every employee who accepts money at your property should be assigned to at least one cashier. If an employee is not assigned to a cashier, any cash payments that he or she accepts and posts to guests’ bills will not be recorded in the cashier. As a result, the cashier will become unbalanced.

There are two ways that you can set up cashier responsibility at your property:

  1. Create a cashier for each individual employee (e.g. "Sarah's cashier") and assign only that employee to the cashier. In this scenario, the money in the register should be divided between the employees so that each individual person is responsible for a specific sum of money, as well as for counting their money and closing their cashier at the end of their shift.
  2. Create a cashier specifically for one department (e.g. “Reception cashier”) and assign every employee in that department to the cashier. Setting up cashier responsibility in this way is less secure than the first option and should only be used at properties with just one person present during a shift.

Delete a cashier

A cashier should be balanced before you delete it. Deleting a cashier cannot be undone.

  1. Go to Main menu > Settings > Property.
  2. Click Cashiers.
  3. Click on the cashier you want to delete.
  4. Click the Trash icon.
  5. Confirm by clicking Delete.
