Watch a video about Version 7.7.0 highlighted features:
Some have said Thr!ve's 2-step register close and reconcile process can be a bit confusing. We've simplified by giving you the option to close and reconcile in one easy step, just by counting your cash. Read More or Watch Video
Improved & Simplified Register Close & Reconcile Process
- Close and Reconcile in 1 step - just enter the total cash in the drawer.
- Use the "Count Later" button to keep the old process - where you reconcile from Manager Home
- We've added security to the "View Report" option, so you can enforce a blind close.
- We've made Thr!ve a lot smarter about maintaining your starting balance, so if you don't have enough cash in the drawer, you have the option to transfer some in or start short.
- Same smarts apply to paying tips - if you don't have enough cash in the drawer, Thr!ve will walk you through transferring it.
Improved & Simplified Driver Status Screen.We've simplified some of the functions on the Driver Status screen to make it less confusing and easier to use! Read Details
- Enter tips right from the screen using your keyboard or on screen keypad, just tab through the tickets for fast tip entry!
- We've removed the "Undo Settle / Settle tickets" from here, so just one consistent process is used. If you need to change a ticket's tender type, you can do so from Full Review.
View & Reprint Past Driver Shift ClosesLooking for an easy way to vew a prior driver's shift close? You can do so now from the 'Print' button on the Driver Status screen! Read More.
Improved E-Mail Receipts & ConfirmationsWe're excited to announce a revamped approach to e-mail receipts and dispatch confirmations! First, we've removed all the complex set up - so you no longer need to use your personal email credentials. Next, we've improved the format of the e-mails to include your logo, customer signature for credit cards, and to make them look better in general! Internal manager alert emails will also no longer require e-mail account set up, though their formatting hasn't changed - yet! Learn more about e-mail receipts and automatic email order confirmations.
Track Adds & Edits to Tickets on the Full Review ScreenThr!ve now gives you insight into any post-save adds or edits, right from the Full Review screen (Learn More)
Improved Register AssignUse the Register Assign feature to limit access to your cash drawers. Learn More.
Improved Tools for Internet Connectivity Problems
We've added active network monitoring for all the sites you might need to connect to - like Google maps, SalesBuilder, Thr!ve Online, Dr!ve, etc. If a site is unreachable, or if your internet is down, you'll be notified in the "Instant Messaging" section of your POS system.
- Whenever possible, actions & updates are queued so that they will still be sent when connectivity returns. For example, SalesBuilder loyalty enrollments, transactions and redemptions, Thr!ve Online or Let's Get menu updates, Dr!ve status updates, E-mail notifications are all sent as soon as have have a connection.
- Other actions that can't be saved for later - such as mapping or driving directions, will time out quickly so as not to interfere with your POS processes.
- Credit card processing will still attempt to connect, and give you an "authorize later" option if a connection is not available.
