In the Point of Sale application Odoo groups customer transactions into sessions. These sessions allow yout organize your sales batches by users and make it easier to manage the process. This fits in smoothly with the way other point of sale systems typically manage their applications. Out of the box, Odoo provides an easy to use configurration that lets you start a session, open a ticket and start running orders through the system immediately.

What is cash control and how do I configure it in Odoo 8?

By default Odoo just let's you start selling and at the end of the day posts the sales to your sales journal. It does not ask you to verify that the money you have received during the session matches what you have in your cash drawer. In this video we show you how to configure cash control so that you can properly reconcile the cash that was in the drawer in the start of the session with the transactions that were received throughout, with the money remaining in the cash drawer when the session is closed. The video covers both the setup of the session to manage cash control as well as the process that you go through to reconcile at the end of the session.

How does Odoo 8 Point of Sale tie in with accounting and the sales journal?

Like most of the Odoo applications, Odoo Point of Sale creates a set of default accounts for the application that make it very easy to get up and running fast. When sales are posted from the point of sale module they are posted to the sales journal specified to that cash register. For many small operations the default sales journal will be fine. At any time you can go in and look at the sales analysis. In the video we show you how to find that information quickly and see data by product as well as analyze by date. Still, most people will want to install Accounting & Finance so they can get more detail on the specific accounts an perform the tasks required for running their operations... such as maintaining income statement and balance sheets.
