            Permission Logic

            1. Currently, in Linga application, if a role is given access to specific permission(s), then the respective user will be able to grant access to other roles within the specified permission(s). But the user is able to create users of any hierarchy.
            2. For example, when the Admin has given following permissions to the Manager - Create Item, Edit Item,Void Item and Pay Cash. Then the Manager can only have the access to provide the permission to other users within these options only. But now a Manager is able to create an Admin user. Hence this needs to be prevented.

            1. The Cash Reward will be displayed only once, even though the customer pays cash multiple times for a receipt.
            2. Cash reward is not applied for multi-currencies. It will be calculated based on the Store Currency.
            3. When the customer pays the total amount using other payments, only the service charge will be calculated. The Cash reward will not be applied.
            4. When the customer pays partial amount using other payment and remaining amount using cash, the cash reward will be applied only for the amount paid by cash.
              1. For example, When the Total amount that needs to be paid is $100.00 and the customer pays $70.00 using a credit card and $30.00 using cash, then the Cash Reward will be calculated for $30.00
            1. Applying discount
              1. When a menu item price is $10.00, the discount is set as $1.00 and the cash reward percentage as 5% in the back office, then the check total before applying discount will be $10.00. the check total after applying discount will be $9.00.
              2. Now when the customer pays via cash, the check total will be $8.55. The Cash Reward $0.45 will be given to the customer as change due.


            1. When the customer pays the amount via cash a_er reducing the cash rewarded amount, then the Change Due will not be displayed on the receipt.
              1. For example, When the Total amount is $10.00 and the cash rewarded amount is $1.00. If the customer pays $9.00, (i.e)$10.00 - $1.00, then the Change Due will not be displayed in the receipt.
            2. When the customer has made full payment through cash, then the cash reward will be calculated for the full amount. i.e, when the Total amount is $10.00 and the customer pays the full amount through cash, then the Cash Reward will be $1.00 and the Change due will be $1.00.
            3. When the customer has made partial payment through cash, then the cash reward will be calculated for the partial amount. i.e, when the Total amount is $10.00 and the customer pays partially through cash ($5.00), then the Cash Reward will be $0.50 , Check Total will be $9.50 and the Paid amount will be $4.50.


            1. When a check has a non-sale amount like recharge of Gift Card, House Account etc., then the cash reward will not be applied to the non-sale amount.
              1. For example: When the Sale Amount is $10.00, Recharge (Non-Sale revenue) is $5.00, then the cash reward will be applied only to the sale amount.
            2. When tax is added to the check amount, then the cash reward will be applied to the sub total first and stored internally and then to the Tax amount,
              1. For example: When the Sub Total is $10.00, 10% exclusive tax is $1.00, Total will be $11.00 and 10% cash reward ($1.10),
              2. Sub Total will be displayed as $10.00 (stored internally as $9.01)
              3. Tax will be displayed as $0.89. Finally, the Total will be displayed as $9.90
            3. When a check contains inclusive tax, the cash reward will not be applied to the inclusive tax separately. (i.e) the cash reward will be applied to the Total amount.
            4. When a check contains gratuity amount, then the cash reward will not be applied to the gratuity.
              1. For example: When the Sub total is $10.00, Gratuity (25%) is $2.50. When Cash reward (10%) is applied to the Sub Total, the
              2. Sub Total will be displayed as $10.00 (stored internally as $9.00).
              3. Now the Gratuity will be calculated for the Sub Total.




            1. When the check tax is applied to the check, for example, 10% tax for the check total $10.00, a_er applying the cash reward, the tax will become $0.00. Because the check total will be reduced after the cash reward is applied.
            2. Customer Display Screen: Cash Reward will be displayed on the Customer Display Screen to inform the customers in advance about the cash discount fees.
            3. Report:
