This article guides users on how to update labor or sales data by running Decision Logic’s Universal Data Transfer (UDT) application.
Universal Data Transfer (UDT) is Decision Logic’s application used to import sales and labor data from the POS into Decision Logic’s platform. The application is typically installed on the back office server.
Only available for Windows XP or newer versions.
UDT automatically sends the last 3 days of sales and last 7 days of labor to Decision Logic’s platform.
There may be times when a user may need to run UDT, such as:
Labor data is incorrect or missing when comparing Decision Logic to the POS.
Employee is not assigned a job code in the Employee Roster.
Employee does not exist (unknown) in the Employee Roster.
Missed declared tips for a tippable job code.
Clearing an issue with a previously unmapped item.
When one of the examples from above occurs, users will need to update information by one of the following methods:
The method is determined by the type of Point Of Sale (POS) the store has. Universal Data Transfer (UDT) is run when a store has the following POS:
Users will need to clear labor for each day that has incorrect or missing labor and Open Payroll, if payroll is posted, before running UDT. Users will also need to clear sales for each day that has incorrect or missing sales.
When users need to update labor data, they will need to Open Payroll before running Universal Data Transfer (UDT). Follow the steps below to clear labor or sales for each day that has incorrect or missing data.
Operations > End of Day > End of Day
Select a Store.
Select a Date.
Click More Actions.
Click Clear Labor or Sales. Users will need to clear labor or sales for each day that has incorrect or missing data.
Users will need to open payroll for missing or incorrect labor data. Users will not need to open payroll when updating incorrect or missing sales data. Follow these steps to Open Payroll:

Leave the payroll week open until you perform the steps to run Universal Data Transfer (UDT). After UDT has a successful transfer, users will need to re-post payroll.
