    Clerk IDs are a great way to associate transactions with the employees that completed them.

    When this feature is enabled, employees are assigned a unique identifier that they must enter in order to perform a transaction.

    This feature allows to produce transaction reports and track financial data by employee.

     

    TO ADD A CLERK ID

    Navigate to https://manage.ackroo.com and sign in.

    • Select the Admin drop-down menu and select Point of Sale.
    • Select the Clerks sub-menu tab.
    • Select ADD CLERK

    • Select the Business and Location for which the employee works and enter an identifier as well as the employees first and last name, then select OK
      • The Business is the parent company for the location to which the employee works.
      • The Location is the actual locale from which the employee works.
      • The Identifier is the unique number that the employee will use when processing a transaction.
      • The first and last name associates the identifier with an employee.

    Note: Clerk IDs should be:

    • Numeric values only if processing on a debit/credit terminal with a number keypad only (i.e. 1234)
    • Numeric or Alphanumeric values if processing on a virtual terminal which accepts typed entries (i.e. jsmith01)
    • Should be kept confidential to ensure no one is able to impersonate another employee when processing a transaction.
