Summary

On Dec. 8th. 2021 we released a new version of our rPosIO Cloud POS software, version 0.6.2. All customer rPosIO Cloud POS workstations were upgraded to the new version. 

In this release, many of the bug fixes involve how the POS functions when it is unable to communicate with the cloud application and what happens when communications are re-established between the POS and the Cloud application.  

The rPosIO Cloud POS workstation can now run offline, without any issues, as long as the rPosIO Cloud POS workstation has been synced with the customer database at least once.  Once communication between the rPosIO Cloud POS workstation and the Cloud application are restored, all transactions will be updated in the cloud along with all the totals in the various reports.  The operator will receive a message that offline syncing is occurring if they try to log out of the POS or exit from Sale Mode. The operator is able to ring up transactions normally during the syncing process.
