NEW QDRIVER COMMANDS FOR READING/WRITING BALANCE ORDERS

When using balances, it is now possible to read/write an order balance from/to a POS system.

You can read or send orders to the POS. The order contents are stored in a CSV file. When the POS system resides in a network and the “floating balances” is active, the orders sent to the POS are automatically stored in the other POS systems as well.

For reading a balance order there are 3 commands. The order of a balance always starts with a record type 1 (INFO Record), followed by records type 2 (ITEM Record), and ends with record type 3 (TOTAL Record).  You (re-)install by sending the downloaded/created CSV file.

See QDRIVER folders for more information on the record formats.

SYSTEM OPTION 512 – Store Report Info in Binary E-Journal

We’re pleased to announce an update for the report information within the electronic journal.

It’s intended for QTouch 8/10/12/15B and QMP2000.

 

Managers should know which Clerk has created what type of report at what time.  For example, a Clerk prints an X-Report, does some corrections and then prints the Z-report.  In the previous E-Journal version you only saw the correction, but not the time when a clerk actually created a report to check the cash drawer total.  Now however, the Manager can look inside the E-Journal and discover the time a clerk takes a report before the daily Z-Report.

 

SYSTEM OPTION 512 – Store Report Info in Binary E-Journal
