Close Out for Frontline Cashiers/Managers

 

Overview

Close Out is the process in CivicRec to close out a register or till at the end of a shift or day, depending on your process. This module will generate a report based on filters that you can select to generate the transactional information you need; depending on your filters, this report will outline the number and types of transactions taken during that period.

Some customers elect not to use the Close Out module, and instead rely on transactional reports in the Reports module of CivicRec. You can navigate to Reports to access these reports in the left-hand navigation bar.

From here, you can use the Search bar to search for one of our recommended alternatives to the Close Out process:

  • Transaction Detail
  • General Ledger Detail Report

If you require cashiers or managers to count down a till, we recommend reviewing the Close Out process outlined below.

    • Transaction Date/Time: Input date/time you want to run for the Close Out
      • Note: This will default to the current date, from 12AM to 11:59PM. You must change this if you want to look for a previous date or if you want to narrow the time frame.

    • Workstation: Select workstations
    • Staff Member: Select an individual staff member and view only the transactions processed under that staff member’s login
  4. Use the generated data below the filters to check against your register/till

    • Cash Equivalent Receipts by Payment Type: Credit/Debit card payments are considered Cash Equivalent
    • Credits by Payment Type: Documents User Credit given to a public User
  5. Use the Over/Short Transaction tool to itemize the difference if your till is over or under the amounts outlined on the Close Out report

    • Cash Receipts Total in Close: Include the amount of cash & check payments enclosed with Close Out

  8. Click Save

    • Note: This will close out all the transactional information from the report, and populate the information in the “Finance Batch Export” for designated users (usually Admin/Finance users) to manage the batch. This process will batch all of the transactions and cannot be undone.
    • Note: If you need to go back and review/print previous Close Outs, go to the Report/Export History icon (administrators only). You can then view the Daily Close Reports (Close Summary and/or Close Detail) organized chronologically for the last 45 days. They will also outline which user closed out.
