Receipt History

A copy of each payment and paid out receipt is stored in OPERA receipt history at the time the payment or pay out transaction takes place. From the Receipt History screen, receipts can be reviewed on-screen or printed.

Note: Receipts are stored in OPERA receipt history only if they are printed at the time of the payment of pay out transaction. If the Cashiering>Print Receipt application setting is set to Always, the receipt is always printed. If the parameter is set to Ask to Print, you are prompted if you want to print the receipt. If set to Never, a receipt is not printed and stored in the receipt history.

Note: Receipts remain in OPERA receipt history until they are archived to conserve space. (Your property determines how long receipts remain in receipt history before archiving.) If receipts need to be accessed after archiving, they can be retrieved from the storage tape or other archive medium by your system administrator.

Select Cashiering>Cashier Functions>Receipt History to display the Receipt History screen.
