Hi.. I would also like to do something like this in our stores. I did
download a gift receipt from the reports end of customer source and it does
work fine. The problem is that if you do this your get a "gift" reciept for
every transaction which is not what I want. I was told that RMS could do this
but 2 receipts would be printed each time or I could assign one printed for
one type of reciept and another for the other receipt, I did try this and it
also works. The problem here is that you must assign the "ask which printer"
or something like that and this would cause so much delay in ringing
customers that I decided to forget about doing this.
Today I had a thought and wondered if this was possible. Could you somehow
create a condition that would allow a gift receipt to be printed
before/during or after the transaction? I have looked that the receipt xml's
and see all kinds of conditions that decide what is printed, like credit
slips, and wondered if this could work.
This is a crazy idea but maybe something like this: How about if I created a
"gift receipt" item that was a non inventory item. Then program this item on
my keyboard and when pressed it rang up that gift receipt item. Then a
condition that printed the lines for a gift receipt when that item was rung
up? I guess it would be in an "if", "then" or "else" statement of the
receipt's xml. I understand these conditions but can't actually get them
working too well myself.
Sorry this is so long and confusing.
