Access and Run Reports
Users with management permissions can run reports in a few easy steps. All reports are based on orders that have been closed at the register.
In-app reports must be run directly from your Hub device. Not at the restaurant? Use Ambur Cloud to view reporting from anywhere you have access to the internet.
- On the Hub device, tap 'Management' and select 'Reports'.
Don’t see ‘Management’? Only users with management permissions can access this menu.
- Select a date and time range.
Use last few hours | Allows you to view information for the last few hours of the current date.
Detailed Report | Toggle this on to view a more detailed version of the selected report.
- Select a report.
- (optional) Tap 'Includes' to select specific employees to include on the report.
Otherwise, the report will be run for all employees.
- Tap 'Run Report'.
- After the report is generated, choose how to receive it.
For Non-Exportable Reports, select ‘Print’, ‘Email’, ‘Message’, or ‘View’.
Print | Print the report to a connected receipt printer.
Email | Send the report in an email from the email account set up on your device.
Message | Send the report via the Messages app from the iMessage account set up on your device.
View | Look at the report right on your device.
For exportable CSV Reports, share the report via AirDrop, email, or a 3rd-party app.
Restrict Employee Access
Perhaps you want managers to be able to run reports, but not servers. Follow the steps in this section to limit employee access so only certain users can run reports.
- Add specific employees to a User Group you'd like to restrict.
- Tap 'Management' and select 'Permissions'.
- Choose a User Group to restrict.
- Select 'Actions & Ordering'.
- Toggle off 'Access to Management'.
The selected User Group will no longer be able to access any options on the Management menu.
