☝ If you want your revenue to be put to additional accounts after you close the cash shift, remember to tie them to a location.
To do that open Access → Locations, click on Edit next to the needed location, and in the Finance section match your bank account, cash account and your account for safe drops to the accounts you have created.
💡 If you’re working with your suppliers in debt, use additional account for this. Create account, give it supplier’s name and use it as bookkeeping account to withdraw funds for supplies. To pay the debt go to Finances → Transactions and transfer money to supplier’s account from one of your main accounts.
☝️ If you’ve deleted an account, all transactions of this account will be deleted as well.
