Server/Cashier Banking

We need to be able to do Cashier/Server Banking (every cashier has his/her own till and it "follows" them around till their shift is over at which
point the cashier AND NOT the register needs to be blind closed and the cash room needs to update their closing amounts for all the tender types and print a Z report for the cashier (not the register!) so we can hold them accountable for over/shorts and potentially other problems like to many returns etc.).
Is other words we need to be able to X, Blind Close, Z, and ZZ individual cashiers opposed to registers. How can we handle this and/or are there any add-ons available to accomplish this? We can't be the only ones that need this, are we?
The way RMS is setup any cashier can ring up anything on the register but at the end of the shift or day if there is an over or short there is no telling who "made the mistake(s).

I believe what you are looking for is called a "Floating Cashier". We also were looking for this feature. We ended up making a batch for each cashier, when they leave the register they perform a blind close. We then add up all of their batches. Other than being a pain, the only problem is the register performs an offline sync that holds up the register for a few minutes.

This is a feature we are adding and expect to have it as part of Store and HQ Utility by July.

Afshin, that's good to hear, but we need it a.s.a.p. escpecially for SO. Will the SO module be available sooner then that? Are there any other (alike) add-ons available right now?
What can we do right now to at least keep track of individual cashiers on a daily basis. In other words I need to be able to print a (daily) Z report for each cashier with the same information that the Register Z report currently prints except it needs to have ALL the cashier's Z information on it regardless which or how many registers they used that day. Of course I realize we wouldn't be able to do a blind close out or enter opening and closing amounts for each cashiers, but as long as we have the cashiers (daily) totals for refunds, returns, layaways all tender types quantities and amounts and sales and tax information etc. We want to have cashiers "keep" their own tills till they leave for the day at which point they should have everything that they rung up during the day (regardless which register they used) and be accountable for it.
Do you or anybody else have at least the Cashier Total/ Z reports till the module is released?
