Baggers are the members of staff who pack Customers' Items into bags or boxes after they have been scanned by the cashiers.

Listing Baggers in this setting will be useful if cashiers will be able to change Baggers while entering POS Invoices. This list of Baggers will provide a look-up list that the cashiers can use to find the correct Bagger quickly and easily. If you need cashiers to be able to change Baggers, add a "Bagger Search" button to the POS Invoice window. This button is described here.

If you need a default Bagger to be assigned to each new POS Invoice, specify the Bagger's Signature on the 'POS' card in the Local Machine setting and select the Default Bagger and Supervisor on POS Invoice option. If you would like the Bagger to be visible in the POS Invoice window, select the Show Bagger on POS Invoice option in the same setting. You will need to do this individually on each till and cash machine (or, for tills that have live-sync connections to the server, in the records for each till in the Local Settingssetting in the Technics module). If a cashier changes the Bagger in a POS Invoice using the "Bagger Search" button, the new Bagger will be copied back to the Local Machine setting, so the change will last until the cashier changes the Bagger again.

To list Baggers, ensure you are in the Point of Sales module using the [Switch Module] button in the Navigation Centre. Then, if you are using Windows or macOS, click the [Settings] button, also in the Navigation Centre. When the 'Settings' list opens, double-click 'Baggers'. If you are using iOS or Android, select 'Settings' from the Tools menu (with 'wrench' icon) and tap 'Baggers' in the 'Settings' list. The 'Baggers: Inspect' window opens: configure it as appropriate and as described below. When the record is complete, click the [Save] button (Windows/macOS) or tap √ (iOS/Android) to save.

Paste Special    Person register, System module and Global User register, Technics module
Enter the Signatures of the Baggers, or choose them from the Person or Global User registers using 'Paste Special'.

It is not necessary for a Bagger to have a record in the Person or Global User registers. If a Bagger does not have a Person or Global User record, simply enter their Signature and Name as appropriate. If cashiers will be able to change Baggers while entering POS Invoices, it is recommended that you use numeric codes as Signatures. The window that the cashiers will use to choose Baggers has a numeric keypad that can be used from a touch screen.

To make it easy for cashiers to find the Baggers that they need, it is recommended that you enter Baggers in numeric and/or alphabetical order, as shown in the illustration. If you need to insert a row to maintain this order, click on the row number where the insertion is to be made and press the Return key (Windows/Mac OS X) or long tap on a row number and select 'Insert Row' (iOS/Android). When cashiers come to choose a Bagger using the 'Paste Special' function, the Baggers will be shown in the selection list in the order that you have listed them here.

The Name of the Bagger will appear here after you have entered their Signature in the Bagger field on the left.
