Tip Outs

By Kelsey | 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:

With Version 2.55, you can use the Tip Outs feature to 'tip out' employees while retaining correct cash numbers.

A tip out is a type of Payout (money taken out of the till) which does not affect cash due house/employee numbers. Further, it records the employee name who receives the tip out (rather than recording a reason).

Now employers will be able to track money taken from tills to tip out employees while still having correct cash due lines.

Tip outs are primarily a cash management tool and are not connected to tip pooling or payroll.
