Basic Automation Tutorial Video for Simple Fast Cash Buttons [HD with Voiceover]

Two issues I have found so far , hoping you may be able to help, first is that when I use the fast cash buttons the tickets still says unpaid, second and this is a minor issue(just being fussy really) but if say the total is 14.00 and I tender 15.00 IE, 10+5 the amount tendered in the shows only as 5. IE the last amount that was tendered instead of the total tendered,

You would not typically use fast cash in that way, it is typically used for those denominations,
If you want total tendered you would need to adjust the message to use a different tag and add a constraint like remaining total = 0.

For your example of 15 tendered that would be what you would use the open tender cash button and type the amount entered or use the settle screen.

If you wanted to - which I have done before you could limit the command buttons to only work if the tendered amount is larger than ticket total in the rule constraints.

I see were you coming from , other thing is you could probably have 15/25/30 button s as well , what about the issue of the amounts not being paid when you use the fast cash buttons,

Thought you sorted that?

No, that was the buttons not applying the proper amount, remember, …that’s sorted,my problem is that if you settle a ticket the long way, IE,with the tender screen, the ticket is paid , done , dusted , gone, etc, but if you settle it with fast cash, it appears to remain as unpaid ,so when you go into tickets it’s still marked as unpaid and there’s no way of getting g rid

OK, think understand, but does it get marked paid on ticket closing?
There should be before ticket closing rule which handles that.

No that rule does not seem to be there, but can make it , …now I really want to have a situation were , after I tender say 5.00 and I get the tendered amount and the change etc , the ticket would automatically be closed and I can start a new ticket, any idea were I could get a n example

It is there on default setup???

On my full system, I have extended the flow.

Instead of the change message like in tutorial I added an extra step;

The two actions trigger the next rules based on change amount;

The ‘True’ for background makes that command wait until all other actions are finished.

Thanks for that, something to play with over the weekend,

Got it working, all I need to do was add close ticket action at the end,
Thanks for all your assistance

Followed both videos and got the payment and change notice working great.

Is there a way for the ticket to automatically close when you press the OK button? After I press ok, I still need to press the close button. Seems like an extra step and trying to reduce the amount of questions from the bartenders.


Do a seccond rule like for print bill but for value OK and add close ticket action.
Depends in change message is set for all payments if you allow smaller than total amounts or just final payment.
