What's New in CORE POS?
Review this topic for an overview of the functionality in this release of CORE POS, which includes both enhanced functionality/improvements and fixes.
Enhancements/Improvements (US and Canada)
CORE POS Updates to RIM
Improvements have been made to ensure RIM and patron status is accurately updated based on rental actions performed in CORE POS.
Campus Card Button
Ability has been added to enable/disable the campus card button and campus card functionality based on the store-specific configuration. If disabled for a store, CC Inquiry and Campus card tender buttons do not display.
Team Member Information Sent for A/R Transactions
The CORE POS ID and full name of cashier are sent in the A/R and FA webservice request per ePay requirements for all A/R and FA transactions. There are no changes to the user interface; information is transmitted on the back end.
Student ID Swipe Feature Enabled for A/R Transactions
For A/R related work flows, the student ID can be swiped at the PIN Pad. Student details are identified and all associated A/R accounts for that student display. A Swipe Confirm screen displays prompting the customer to swipe their student ID card or the cashier can manually enter the student ID/last name to access the account details.
The option to swipe the student ID card is available for A/R tender, Return to A/R, Payment on Account, or rental collateral/express registration where A/R is selected as the tender.
Select Yes to swipe the ID card. If No is selected, the usual flow of the student ID capture screen displays, where the Student ID/Last Name is entered to display the A/R Account Details screen.
If an issue occurs at the PIN Pad, the Swipe Confirm screen displays again and the cashier can prompt the customer to swipe again or manually search for the Student ID/Last Name.
If the account is not available on the A/R Account Details screen after the student ID is swiped, the cashier can select Undo and is redirected to manually enter the Student ID/Last Name to search for the A/R account.
13 Digit ISBN Details Sent to RIM
Rather than the 18 digital ISBN for rental SKUs or UPC, CORE POS will send the 13 digit ISBN to RIM when a SKU/ISBN is manually entered in CORE POS.
Payment on Account Disabled for Non-AR Financial Aid Type Stores
Going forward, the Payment on Account button will only display if a store is enabled for A/R financial aid.
Till ID Restrictions
0 or multiple zeros are not allowed as the Till ID from either CORE Back Office or POS during the Open Till process. Both Back Office and POS alerts the user that an invalid Till ID has been entered when attempting to enter 0 or multiple zeros.
An enhancement has been made in programing to minimize tax issues.
Token and expiration date information will be sent in the credit card settlement file for manually entered credit card transactions. Previously, this information was not sent for manual credit card transactions, resulting in additional processing fees for some card types.
Canadian Bilingual Receipts
Additional French translations of keywords have been added to printed bilingual receipts. These are in addition to the initial translated words setup for Canada in phase 1.
Credit Card Auto Refund
For return transactions where the original sale was tendered to a credit card tender, there will be an auto refund to the original credit card. The auto refund is initiated in the Select Tender screen for the return transaction.
Capture Method Displays as Wave for Tapped Credit Cards
For sale and return transactions performed by tapping a credit card, where TAP is enabled, the Capture Method displays as Wave on the receipt.
The following defects have been corrected in this release and the error should no longer occur.
