Select Maintenance > Business > Report Settings to access this function.
Each Back-of-House report you run from the Reports menu for Aloha Configuration Center, Aloha Manager, and Aloha Kitchen provides a Settings dialog box for establishing the parameters under which to run the report. Use Report Settings to establish default selections for these reports so that you do not have to enter them each time you run the report. You can also “lock down” the selections so that anyone running the report cannot make changes to your selections.
Report Settings types
There is a corresponding report type available in the Report list box when you click the New drop-down arrow for every report you can run from the Reports > Aloha Manager, Reports > Aloha Configuration Center, or the Reports > Kitchen menu option (select AK in the product panel first). You can only have one default report record for each report type.
Use the Settings tab to establish whether to use the default selections when the report is run and whether to lock down the selections so that they cannot be changed.
