Manager Functions Troubleshooting

If you’ve run into a problem while signed in as a manager, follow along to find a solution that works for you.

I opened / closed my shift for the wrong amount. Can I do anything about that?

No, the opening or closing cash drawer amounts cannot be changed once entered. Be aware that the drawer may have an overage or shortage at the end of the shift, but sales will not be affected.

How do you end the day with credit card transactions?

All your credit card transactions will be reported on your Z Report and you do not need to close your credit transactions batch from the terminal or app because this is done automatically with ShopKeep. Simply close your shift to end your day for all transaction types.

When I tap 'No Sale', the cash drawer doesn’t open.

We’ve got you covered! Head over to the cash drawer troubleshooting guide to get everything sorted out.

When I press 'Get Updates', ShopKeep returns an error message.

‘Error Syncing with BackOffice’ is often the result of an internet connection issue. Follow the suggestions below to troubleshoot your connection:

  1. Load a website or perform another function that requires internet.
  2. Check that the iPad is connected to the right WiFi network. If not, reconnect it to your network.
  3. Ask someone familiar with your network setup to reboot the modem / router.
  4. Contact your internet service provider for further assistance.

On my Diagnostics Overview page, I see a number of items next to Pending Queue / Delayed Queue. What’s that?

Request queue errors occur when the internet connection is too slow for ShopKeep to sync with BackOffice.

  1. Make note of the number of items and tap 'Force Get Updates'.
  2. Wait 10 minutes and check the queue again.
  3. If the queue has decreased, wait until it eventually reaches 0.

    If the queue does not decrease, there is still an issue with the internet connection. After each step below, tap Force Get Updates.

    • Check that the iPad is connected to the right WiFi network. If not, reconnect it to your network.
    • Load a website or perform another function that requires internet.
    • Ask someone familiar with your network setup to reboot the modem / router.
    • Contact your internet service provider for further assistance.

I’m having problems with the Register List.

Don’t worry, we’ll help you fix it. Visit the Serverless Sync™ troubleshooting guide for help.

When I deactivate my register, I receive an error message indicating it failed.

This could have occurred if the iPad was not connected to the internet when attempting to deactivate. Check your internet connection and follow the on-screen troubleshooting solutions, then tap ‘Retry’.
