About Custom FOH Reports
Use the Aloha® Custom FOH Reports to replace or extend the existing default 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.
Caution: If you have Custom FOH reports in place and use Print Intercept to view a custom report on the screen versus automatically printing a report, upon upgrade to v15.1, you must select a new option called ‘Display custom reports on the FOH’ under the ‘Report settings’ group bar under the Report Printing group located in Maintenance > Business > Store > Store Settings tab. If you do not, all custom FOH reports automatically print to the local receipt printer.
If you configured custom FOH reports prior to v12.3 you did so by creating an external configuration file using MS Notepad® and then placing the file in the Data directory. While not required, we recommend you upgrade your custom FOH reports to use the configuration management tool, either Aloha Configuration Center or new Aloha Manager. See “Appendix: Upgrading Custom FOH Reports” on page 35.
