Salaried Employees

When scheduling salary managers, GMs would like to be able to see hours for coverage but they don't want these shifts to count towards dollars or hours on the schedule.

Labor IDs that have their Manager box checked will be ignored. This manager flag can be updated in the Labor tab of POS Setup.

For additional Labor Scheduling Considerations of Salaried Employees see: /wiki/spaces/DCKBA/pages/169902136 

Gifts and Service Charges

  • Map all non-revenue items under Gifts tab. This will include Gifts sold and service charges in Decision Logic. 


  • Create Deposit types for Manual entry or auto-import
  • Depending on your point of sale system deposits may be imported automatically. Contact support to find out if your Point of Sale system is eligible.

Order Types

  • Order type sales can be mapped to break out Department sales into Order Types or "Order Modes" from the point of sale. 

Paid Outs

  • Start by creating Paid Out accounts or "reasons" in PPC Maintenance#Accounts 
  • Once accounts are flagged as Paid Out in PPC Maintenance#Accounts navigate to Maintenance> Point of Sale > POS Admin > Paid Out tab

Paid Out Automation 

  • Paid outs can be automated for import depending on your POS system.

I created a new Discount, Comp, Void, Sales Dept, Payment Type, Gift Card or Job Code in my POS. How do I add it in Decision Logic for reporting?

Navigate to Maintenance> Point of Sales> POS Admin 

Select the appropriate Tab for the type of field you created > Add New > Create Name > Enter the POS ID > Save Mapping.

The ID will report going forward. If you want to have historical reporting, you will need to re-run UDT.

(star)Note: Customers on the file de-duplicator will need to clear the Sales or labor form the EOD Process.

(star)For Aloha Voids see Aloha POS Admin

(star) Note: Gift cards sold should be set up on the Gifts tab in DL and NOT on the Departments tab. Gifts sold do not add to sales for the day and instead are treated like an 'IOU' for a future payment redemption at the store.

I want to map a Paid Out/ Paid In but the Add New Paid Outs is greyed out on the POS Admin Paid Outs Tab.

To have Paid outs and Paid Ins auto pull from your POS, you will want to request that Decision Logic build a UDT Task for you.

Submit a support ticket using our Customer Support Portal

Once the task has been enabled by Decision Logic, you will want to enter the Account in PPC Maintenance and then map the POS ID in POS Admin.

See PPC Maintenance Accounts.

Should I map cash in POS Admin?

Decision Logic does not track cash payments. Cash payments typically come across as Payment POS ID 1 and they should not be mapped in POS Admin. Doing so will cause your Cash O/S to be inflated. We do calculate cash payments using the following formula: 

Cash Payments Calculation = Net NetSales + Net NetTaxes - all other Payment types mapped in POS Admin (such as your credit cards and gift cards).

If your POS has a Credit and Cash Summary Export, it can differ from the standard formula.

Decision Logic also calculates your Cash Accountability and your Cash over short.
