Reason Codes (SalesPad Cloud)

Overview

Reason Codes are used in both SalesPad POS and SalesPad Cloud, but their functions are slightly different for both applications. In SalesPad Cloud, Adjustment Codes can be used for inventory transfers, adjustments in, and adjustments out, and Return Codes are used for returns.

Note: Adjustment and Return Codes are the only Reason Codes used in SalesPad Cloud. All other Reason Codes are used in SalesPad POS. 

To get started, select Reason Codes from the Settings menu.

Create a Reason Code

To create a Reason Code, open the tab for the type of Reason Code you wish to create, then click the New Reason Code button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.

For a brief explanation of each Reason Code type, click here:

Reason Codes

New Adjustment Code - Use this code to account for inventory adjustments in or out

New Pay Out Code - Use this code to account for money taken from a drawer (not for use with SalesPad Cloud)

New Return Code - Use this code to give a reason for inventory being returned


 

Depending on which type of Reason Code you select, a corresponding drawer will open. Fill out the information fields in the drawer and click Save

For a brief explanation of the different information fields in each drawer, click on the name of the drawer below:
