Chapter 51. Cash Reports

Cash reports are useful for quickly getting information about money that your library has collected from patrons. This can be helpful in a few different scenarios, such as:

  1. Reconciling a cash drawer at the end of the day.
  2. Seeing how popular a specific payment type is (perhaps when evaluating a food-for-fines program).

To use the cash reports,

  1. Under the Administration menu, choose Local Administration.
  2. Click Cash reports.
  3. Select the time period and library you are interested in. This interface defaults to showing payments accepted during the current day.
  4. Click Submit.

Tip

You can click on the names of columns to sort the reports.

Note

These payments are divided into two different types: Desk payments — in which a staff member simply accepted a credit card, check, or cash payment — and User payments — in which a staff member had to make a specific decision about whether to accept a payment of goods or work; or forgave or granted credit to a particular patron.
