To manage cashier permissions you can set up cashier roles. The cashier roles are under Employees > Cashier Roles.
Here you can create and modify cashier roles which determine a cashier’s permission. In other words, what they are able to do at the Point of Sale.
If you create or edit a cashier role you will see two boxes on the right side.
The left box shows permissions that are available but the cashiers in this role do not have. On the right side are the permissions that this cashier role has.
You can grant or take away permissions by dragging permissions from one side to the other or you can use the arrow icons in between the two permission boxes. The single arrow will move the items selected and the double arrow will move all items.
*Note: If a cashier attempts to perform an action they do not have permissions for at the Point of Sale, they will get a pop up notification stating “You are not Authorized to perform this action”
This permission allows cashiers to finalize a receipt that does not have any items on it. This is commonly used to access the cash drawer.
This permission allows the cashier to void/remove line items.
Cancel Last Receipt Item
Without this permission cashiers are not allowed to remove the last item from the receipt. This prevents the cashier from removing all line items to get to a blank receipt.
The cashier is able to cancel a receipt which has not yet been finalized.
External Point of Sale System
This permission is used by programs that access the Point of Sale system externally, such as a website plugin.
With this permission cashiers can access open receipts that are assigned to other cashiers.
This is a special permission for devices that connect to the point of sale system externally, such as inventory or ticket scanners.
Open Cash Drawer
This permission allows the cashier to pop the cash drawer using a button that has the “Open Cash Drawer” function assigned to it. It is useful to note, that this does not affect whether the drawer will pop upon a cash sale or not.
With this permission cashiers can override item prices even if the product does not allow price changes.
With this permission cashier are able to pull POS reports.
This will allow the cashier to process item returns.
This permission allows cashiers to grant their own permission to other cashiers. This is commonly used for managers that allow the cashier to perform a certain action that the cashier is normally not allowed to perform.
Cashiers with this permission can void receipts that have been finalized.
