The End of Day Checklist is a helpful reminder to ensure that all tasks have been completed at the end of day. The system will confirm that there are no open tickets, that all servers and drivers have performed a close shift, that all cash drawers and cash locations have been closed and reconciled, and that all employees except the person running end of day have clocked off. A confirmation of success can be printed. This is accessed by pressing the End of Day icon on the Manager's Home Page.
Keep in mind, one of the advantages of the Phoenix point-of-sale system is that no formal End-of-Day is required. Unlike older systems, which actually compressed and deleted data each day to save hard drive and database space, Phoenix is able to store all data on your system for immediate access at any time.
The End of Day Checklist is simply a reminder to help closing managers remember all system tasks that should be completed each night.
