X Reports and Z Reports show a summary of transactions. The difference between the two is that the X-Report can be generated from the POS, and shows the day’s activity for that register. The Z-Report shows activity for multiple days and/or multiple registers, depending on selection criteria.
To generate an X Report, simply click the X Report icon in the POS screen
A report will generate onscreen, looking like this
The report can be sent to the printer by clicking the Print button at the top. Note that by default, an X Report will generate when the day is closed for a given register.
To generate a Z Report, in the Back Office, click Reports at the top of the screen, and Z Report from the submenu.
The next screen offers you selection criteria for the report.
Note that leaving a field blank will disregard that criteria when generating the report. For example, if I generate the report as the settings are listed above, the report will show me all transactions from all registers in all locations between 10/1 and 10/31. From that point, clicking Z Report at the bottom of the screen with pop the report up onscreen.
