WHERE : POS APP

Overview

With OscarPos Cloud, the POS APP Log In is different to a POS APP Clock In.

You Log In to gain access to the POS screens for Setup, Orders, etc … depending on the ROLE you have been assigned.

When you LOG IN, you do NOT automatically CLOCK IN.

You Clock In / Out / Break purely for Time Keeping and Scheduling and Payroll.

Your ROLE might only be able to do CLOCKING and have no other access to the POS APP. An example of this might be a Kitchen Hand or Cleaning Staff.

Sign In Screen

When you first start your OscarPOS Cloud POS APP you will be presented with the following Sign In Screen.

POS APP - SIGN IN SCREEN
POS APP – SIGN IN SCREEN

From this screen your employees can :

  • See the current POS APP Version
  • Exit the POS APP
  • Use the Virtual Keyboard to enter their PIN to –
    • Login to the POS APP
    • Begin their roster with <Clock In>
    • End their roster with <Clock Out>
    • Take a <BREAK>

Start Working With POS APP

So you have started your POS APP and said “Yes” to any update.

You now have the SIGN IN SCREEN.

  • Use the virtual keyboard to enter your PIN
  • Select <LOG IN>

What happens next will depend on the ROLE you have been assigned and the PERMISSIONS that ROLE has.

If you receive “This account does not have access to the current terminal” refer to your Back Office Management Administrator.

You may also be prompted to START OR END A SHIFT.

NOTE : You have NOT clocked in !

Use the POS APP as a Time Clock

To help you keep track of your STAFF ROSTERING, your employees can use the POS APP to “punch in and out” virtually.

From the SIGN IN SCREEN :

  • Enter the PIN and <CLOCK IN>
  • Enter the PIN and take a <BREAK>
  • Enter the PIN and end your <BREAK>
  • Enter the PIN and <CLOCK OUT>

If the PIN has multiple ROLES assigned, you will be prompted to select the correct ROLE.

If the POS APP is already LOGGED IN, the LOGGED IN USER can take advantage of the Time Keeping functions by selecting :

  • Menu / Clock Out

Note that these options change according to the current  user status

As at the date of this article, to Clock In a user that is different to the Logged In user, requires Menu / LogOut.
