Amount Entry Items are items used in RTS used to specify a custom amount to charge. These items are often used to set up Theatre Rentals buttons, Petty Cash buttons, Donations, etc.


Here are the steps for creating an amount entry item that can be used to charge a custom amount:

  1. Go to: SETUP -> CONCESSIONS -> ITEMS, select ADD, then select YES to the warning
  2. Type the name of the item, e.g. Theatre Rental, and then select OK
  3. Set the Price to be 0.01. If you want this item to offset a fixed amount instead of a custom amount, set that amount here instead of 0.01, and skip the next step.
  4. Check the option Amount Entry Item

  5. Select the Subtotal Tab. Press Edit Subtotals, and choose Add, type the name you entered in Step 2
  6. Set the item as Revenue, select Save
  7. Highlight the subtotal you just created, select Save, then Close

  9. Select the station number that you will use this item on
  10. Move the item from the Main Item list to the Station Item list
  11. Set the type as Selling and the stock type as Create
  12. Select Save, then Close
  14. Select the station the item will be used on
  15. Highlight the item you created, in the Concession Items list, then click inside a free space on the selling screen. This will place a button with the name you chose in Step 2, on this screen.
  16. Select Save As, highlight the Station you chose in Step 14, select OK, then Close

You will now have a button on the selling screen that you can select, enter the amount you are wanting to charge, and RTS will keep track of it. If needed, you can make a button for each type of Amount Entry, or keep everything under the one item.

Password Protection

If you need to password protect this feature (limiting it to users with the ability to sell / deduct protected items), please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to: SETUP -> CONCESSIONS -> ITEMS, highlight the item and select Edit
  2. Check the option Password Protected, select Save and then Close
  3. Go to: SETUP -> PASSWORD, highlight a user that will have permission to use the Payout button, select the Selling tab, and check the Protected Concession Item Sale option.
  4. Select Save

If someone without the permission Protected Concession Item Sale tries to use the item, it will prompt for a password. If someone with the permission tries, it will allow the transaction to take place.
