2. Configure which Staff Users can use Point of Sale feature

After enablement, by default, no staff users are given access to use Point Of Sale feature. Since staff users can only use the feature, your organization will need to decide which set of users should be given access.  And also make sure they are provided with IDTech Augusta device. Your organization can also grant access to staff users for a limited amount of days (time), so that their day to day payment process remains streamlined and only have Point of Sale option enabled during Conferences and Events.

To enable this feature for specific users, follow the below steps:

  1. From Setup, enter Users in the Quick Find box, then select Users
  2. Click Edit for the User whom you want to enable Point of Sale feature
  3. Check the Point of Sale checkbox. If the field is not available on the page layout, please update the layout and add the field.
  4. Click Save

Time-based Access for Users

If time based access is required for specific users to use the point of sale feature, we recommend customizing the business rule Allow logged in Point of Sale or creating a new business rule. This functionality can be really helpful if you want to provide Point Of Sale access to certain staff users only during a Conference or an Event. 

As an example, the business rule will take into account the start date and end date of the event and populate the checkbox for enabling or disabling point of sale access for the user. Hence, when the current date will lie within the event dates, the user will be able to use the point of sale feature. The additional step of deselecting the enable point of sale checkbox will be eliminated for the staff user.
