About Custom Checkout Report
Use the Aloha® Custom Checkout Report to replace or extend the existing default Front-of-House (FOH) reports. By creating your own reports, you have unlimited flexibility for reporting on any facet of your operation, such as comps and promotions, tipouts, and more. Additionally, you can filter the reporting data by one or many employees.
When an employee runs a checkout at the end of their shift, unless otherwise configured, a standard checkout report prints; however, the Aloha system provides a method by which you can insert additional information into the standard checkout report, or completely replace the standard checkout report with a checkout report customized by you. To insert data into, or completely customize, the checkout report, you must configure what you want to print using a Checkout.cfg file. If the Checkout.cfg file does not exist, the standard checkout report continues to print, regardless of all other configuration.
Benefits of using a custom checkout report:
- Able to add additional information, with formatting to the report that is not on the standard report.
- Able to completely replace the standard report with your own customized checkout report to include additional or exclude unnecessary information to fit your needs.
- Able to apply formatting to custom variables and include calculations on the customized sections to suit your needs.
