Switching Users After a Sale


Latest update: - Lauren Taylor

 If you have users using the same device and want to save some time with logging in, you can enable the "Ask for user on Sale" setting. With this option enabled, each time a sale is processed, you will be prompted to select the user for the next sale.

This setting can save you a lot of time by having multiple users logged into one register, and being able to sign in at the click of a button; which also helps with faster processing of sales (which can help when there is a queue or it is a peak sales time).

How do I enable user switching?

1. Click on the Setup Tab, and select "Outlets and Registers" from the green menu bar.

3. When processing sales on this register, you will now be prompted to select a user before the sale is processed.

How do I enable user switching security?

There are occasions where you might need to login to a higher permission account such as providing a discount to a customer when you have our Cashier Restrictions enabled.  User switching security is a great way to ensure your Vend Account is secure and that users can't make changes outside of their User Role.

This articles demonstrates the process for enabling a password prompt when switching between accounts with higher permissions such as Cashier -> Manager or Manager -> Administrator. To learn how to do this follow the steps below:

1. Click Setup -> General

2. From the User switching security drop down select Require a password when switching to user with greater privileges

3. Once you've done this, click save.
