Remove PINs from POS Accounts

This functionality is only available to customers who have purchased Campus Point of Sale as add-on functionality.

PATH: Point of Sale > Account Maintenance > Account Management Wizard

This option removes the PIN from patrons who have an inactive account in Campus. For example, an account where the Active checkbox on the patron's Account Info tab has been cleared. When a PIN is removed the Location School field is set to "Default" on the Account Info tab.

Family Accounts
If a family account is inactive and you select Student in the Type field, the PIN is only removed from the student on the family account. To remove staff PINs from family accounts, select Staff or Staff and Student in the Type field. If there are any patrons on a family account with no enrollment or employment record, you must manually remove the PIN or use an Ad Hoc filter.

Food Service Cashier and Food Service Manager
The Account Management Wizard only removes personal PINs from an account. If an inactive staff account includes Cashier and Manager PINs, these PINs will no longer work on the Point of Sale Terminal; however, these PINs will not be removed from the account. Cashier and Manager PINs must be manually removed.
