Access is the name of the software that runs on the register. In Access, your cashiers will be able to ring up orders, look up previous orders, adjust standsheets, and more. In this guide, we will discover some basics of the register to get you familiar with how Bypass works.
Logging into Bypass
When first turning on the register, or returning to it after it has been logged out, you will see the login screen.
For an employee to be able to log into Access, they will need to have an account created. You can find more information on creating an employee here.
After typing in the Username and Password tap the Login button.
If this is your first time logging (or you don't have a default location set), you will be asked what location you will be using for this register (Find out more about creating locations here). Then if you are hosting an event, you can set what event you are running (Find out more about events here).
Select your location then tap Next, and then choose your event, if applicable, and then tap Done.

After logging into the register, you will see the home screen. Here is a simple breakdown of what you will see.
