Tips on defining your on-boarding process
Receiving prior to the 1st inventory, you should receive 1 of each inventory item via How do I manually receive orders? for Manual Distributors or How do I receive electronically placed orders with ‘Exceptions’ & what does that mean?#ManualReceivebyE-Invoice for Electronic Distributors. This is so that Decision Logic will know what price to calculate the 1st inventory entry for each item.  If you do not have invoices prior to new store onboarding create a generic How do I manually receive orders? for each item.
For a successful roll-out, it is important that the store is as close to ready as possible to avoid unnecessary disruptions for your project team who will be learning a new system in addition to their existing duties.  Completing this list will greatly increase the odds of a successful staging location from the beginning and provide a starting point for fine-tuning.

Roll Out Check List:


  1. Ensure your bid files and order guides for the staging store are current
  2. Ensure inventory guides for the staging store contain all the necessary items
  3. Reconcile sales for a week at the staging store to ensure mappings are correct
  4. Develop processes behind the following features:
  5. Brief the management team on expectations that they will perform all the required tasks to create schedules
  6. Ensure that the management team has attended training or will be trained by someone who has attended training
  7. Provide User Access and Links to Relevant Knowledge Base Articles and training videos 
    • Developing a Store Level Operations manual with your unique workflow can help managers be successful
    • Provide user names and passwords with your staff
    • Share your URL with your staff
    • Share contacts for internal support in your organization with your staff. Below are a few suggestions for contacts to define in your organization: 
      • Operations support
      • Site maintenance support
      • Training support 
      • POS support
      • Payroll support
      • Accounting support

Step 1: Sales & Labor 


Train store managers how you would like them to use /wiki/spaces/DCKBA/pages/600866823 and how to read the  Daily Sales Report DSR.  Doing this will ensure all stores are accountable for sales and labor, and that POS data is accurate.

  • Validate daily POS Sales & Labor
  • Entering Deposits
  • Balancing Cash Accountability
  • Calculating Cash O/S

Labor Scheduling 

  1. Will they be using Employee Onboarding integration to add employees, if not proceed to step
  2. Populate Employee Roster
  3. Set Employee Availability
  4. Invite hourly employees to use Employee Central mobile application
  5. Managers begin Employee Scheduling
  6. Review Labor Scheduled vs. Actual Reporting


  1. It is recommended that store managers validate Payroll weekly

Step 2: Ordering & Receiving

Enter Purchases see What are the features of the Ordering Home page (overview)?.  Receiving purchases these 3 ways prior to 1st Inventory will ensure Decision Logic knows what to calculate your 1st inventory at based on the purchases you receive. (See Market Value vs FIFO for differences in how Inventory $ can be calculated)

  • Enter How do I manually receive orders?
    • Prior to 1st inventory Enter Manual Receive > From Order Guide + Create Invoice for all your current on-hand quantities. You are “receiving” your current on-hand inventory into the system at the Bid File pricing when you do this.
  • Receive E-invoices using How do I receive electronically placed orders with ‘Exceptions’ & what does that mean?
    • For electronic distributors follow the steps for Manual Receive to Receive from E-Invoice all Electronic invoices the week prior to 1st inventory
  • Invoices Entry for Non-Inventoried Purchases & Other Restaurant Costs 
    • Enter Non-Inventoried Purchases via Invoice Entry. This data can be used to supplement your custom-built Budget Report. Non-Inventoried Purchases received from Electronic or Manual Order Guides will appear on TvA Reporting. They will not report to the Cost of Goods Sold.
