I need a report that shows cash and check transactions only over a period of time based on two different categories that were setup in the inventory app. In other words we take checks and cash to the bank. We need to know out of this amount, what amount came from category A and what amount came from category B.
Our reporting apps show break downs by tender in the Payments report. So as long as you are using a "cash" and "check" tender, it's already there.
You can also associate items with categories from the Inventory app. If you do that you can see the result in the Items report.
Sounds like you might be a merchant. This is technically a developer forum for folks writing applications that run on Clover devices. You might get better information if you work with Clover customer support in that case.
