Step 4.4: Printing a z-Report

Written by Jens B.

Last published at: October 9th, 2023

You want to know how much turnover you made during a shift? That’s where the z-report comes in handy. Your orderbird register creates exactly one corresponding z-report for every closed shift. No more hassle!

In a nutshell

  • Go to "Reports" in the main menu.
  • Tap on shift in the center top tab
  • Tap on the z-report for your recently closed shift
  • Select "Print" in the bottom left corner, if you need a printed report

Step by step

  1. Go to "Reports"
    Go to "Reports" in the main menu of the orderbird app.
  2. Select the "shift" view
    On the right side you will find three small tabs - Shift, Day and Device. Check if "shift" is highlighted in blue. If not, tap on "shift".
  3. Check whether your shift data is completely synchronized
    If you just see an x report at the top of the list on the left, your data is still being synchronized with my.orderbird. At the top right there is an icon with a round arrow - tap it once to synchronize all data. As soon as the overview of your shift-reports is not showing an X anymore, but a Z at the beginning, the data is completely synchronized and your z-report has been created.
  4. The z-report contains the following information
    Tap on your first z-report to open it. You will find the time span of the shift, your turnover incl. expenses and tips, the users of this shift (who worked), the used payment types, the tax rates as well as possible cancellations, discounted invoices and a guest count.
  5. Print report
    To print the report, simply tap "Print" in the lower left corner and your printer will start printing.
