Select Maintenance > Payments > Comp Codes to access this function.
In early versions of Aloha Manager, you had to manually configure a comp-verification file (CompVer.txt) to enable the FOH system to verify the names and numbers of non-Aloha POS system employees, when applying comps. When an employee number was listed in the comp-verification file, the FOH system applied the employee name and number to the selected comp name. If an employee number was not listed in CompVer.txt, the FOH warned you with an invalid employee message, but you could still apply the comp to the check.
With the current Aloha POS system, you use the Comp Code function in conjunction with the Comp Employees function to create a name and number combination for comp verification. Add the comp code using the Comp Code function, and then link the comp code to an employee ID, such as a bus driver that receives comp meals, using the Comp Employees function. Based on the number assigned in Comp Codes, and the comp ID and name, the Aloha POS system automatically creates CompVer.txt in the \Newdata folder during export, and then copies it to the \Data folder during the Refresh process. The FOH system automatically checks against CompVer.txt for employee comp verification.
The following is an example of a CompVer.txt file with valid data:
|Identification number, which is verified by the FOH
|Employee first name.
|Employee last name.
|Comp code (numeric)
