One thing that I wish would happen on New POS would be for items that are Zeroed out in the system to be Auto-Salvaged instead of processed like normal. I know Classic POS used to do that, but it was removed from Classic before I started, so I've only worked with Classic and New not Auto-Salvaging $0.00 merchandise. I mean, it Auto-Defects food and select Health/Beauty items already, so it shouldn't be hard at all to program. It's so annoying going through the piles of returned items, scanning to see what's Missed Salvage or not and Defecting I mean "Item Removing" them out, and it is not practical to scan every item on the Zebra during a return and manually Salvaging items out through the "Anything Wrong?" prompt, espcecially when the Guest has a lot of items or when there's a huge line at the Service Desk, and you have to be as speedy as possible.

Also, still annoying that we can't scan multiple receipts in the same return anymore. It came in handy so many times. I know Receipt Lookup will pull them all but multi-receipt returns are still a MUST. This one isn't a must, but something that I found neat about Classic was that we could do a Receipt Lookup during a return. Like if a Guest had a receipt, and also something off of their card or a different card, one of the K-keys, I don't remember which one, would let us do a lookup in the same return as one in progress. I didn't use it all the time, but when I did, it came in clutch.

I feel like that MIGHT be? I know myDay used to read salvaged items as clearance. I don't know if the POS can or can't tell? But at the same time. Target makes billions lol.

As much as we shit on Target. We really do have the best POS in the industry (especially when they finalize a lot of the classic POS features. Especially Exchanges and Multiple Receipts.

Reqing stuff out was so oddly complex for no reason.
The UI / Graphics / Animation is so much better.

Now if you train someone in checkout they now know how to do SCO.

I really do like this new system.
Something so small I don't even think anyone really noticed its been gone is looking up receipts with a gift card. Rare but needed lol

Also if we're talking about the new POS and its functionality it's too separated.
Banking & Inquiry should be at instore checkout, GS, and SBUX. Not its own app.
POA doesn't need to be its own app but that is the one exception ill take.
Also, the signout button has never once worked in the Inquiry app.

I know the whole thing about the new POS was to kill speed scanning but god. I really miss spamming through the gift cards.

Idk wtf they did with TPay but back when they were first rolling it out it was AMAZING. Literally like the second, the reader made the little bloop sound for NFC payment the receipt would print instantly (not even exaggerating here). Idk what target did but shit is slower than before ( still better than classic handling NFC).

can you not scan one on the receipt lookup screen?
I tried a while ago but nope. Maybe they added it now?
speak for yourself, I miss the sleeping bullseye and the thumbs up one :)
I feel like they should bring it back one day.

Or a quick link to banking under the menu or somewhere in the app, and back to gs or sbux instead of just checkout.
They should bring back register themes like they had on SCO with the Vineyard Vines launch
Or sleepy bullseye. Or the new version of bullseye instead of a kind of blank sign in screen
