Making Deposits & Deposit Summary Report

What is the difference between a cash drawer and a cash drawer session?

Cash drawer - Cash drawers are created and maintained for each store. See Update Store for detailed information about setting up a cash drawer.

Cash drawer session - Cash drawers are generally opened at the beginning of the day, and closed at the end of the day. The time when a cash register is open is called the cash drawer session. This is important because the transactions that occur during a cash drawer session are grouped together when making deposits.

You cannot change/update a completed deposit

Once a deposit is complete, it cannot be edited. To make a change to a completed deposit, delete the deposit using the Delete Deposit button on the Search Deposits screen and then make a new deposit.
