How do I enter Tips on the Tip Share page?

This article guides managers on entering tips shared through the Tip Share Entry page on Decision Logic’s platform.

Overview

Decision Logic allows brands, concepts, or franchisees to determine their tip categories and which categories they want to affect accountability on the End of Day report. Each tip category can be leveraged differently.

 

 

Please check with your brand, concept, or franchisee on which tip categories should impact accountability.

 

Decision Logic allocates tips into four categories. Categories can be configured down to the store level. Each Brand or store determines which category tips fall into.

  • Cash Tips (Paid Ins)

  • Credit Card (Receipt Tips)

  • Catering (Receipt Tips)

  • Delivery (Gift Card)

 

Tips must be entered before posting payroll. If tips need to be reallocated after posting payroll, users need to open the payroll week, update the tips entry page for re-distribution, and repost payroll.

 

Accountable Tips are monies that the brand distributes on an employee’s paycheck and are not given to the employee on the same day of business.
