Time Management on the Point of Sale

By Sujin | Updated

Note: this article refers to features in version 2.55, which you may not be using yet. Here's how software updates work with Revel:

  • Your Management Console will automatically upgrade to the newest version in mid-October. No action is required!
  • Your new Revel Point of Sale app will be available shortly after that. Once it's available, head here for update instructions.
  • For a complete overview of how releases work at Revel, head here.

There may be times you will need to adjust an employee’s hours. For example, if they forgot to clock out at the end of their shift or if they forgot to clock in, you want to be able to modify their hours worked.

You can do this directly on the Point of Sale, adjusting hours worked immediately without the need to access the Management Console later solely for this purpose.

Note that editing time worked from the Point of Sale requires an internet connection.
