Action Needed Orders
Action Needed shows failed orders. Failed orders are orders that failed to collect payment. These orders will need to be written off, or the transaction will need to be re-run (possibly needing to contact the customer.) These orders are most often caused by failed payments captured while running in Offline Mode. For more information on Writing Off Orders, click here.
Open Orders displays orders that have been created and have not been closed out yet. Make a habit of checking this page as part of your closing procedures. If any Open orders exist, find that terminal and close it to avoid having to void the order. For more information about the Terminals Order Screen, click here.
Finalized orders consist of Closed, Refunded, and Voided Orders. Clicking on an order will allow you to: refunded closed orders, change the order taker, print a receipt, or email or text a receipt to a customer.
