Commissary Auto Post Setup

Overview:Commissary Auto Posting will automatically Post all Off Site, and On Site Orders that are in the Pre-Order Queue of Lockdown at a specified date(s) and time.Additionally, if the Facility is set up for Online Commissary / Web Pack (New style), the Web Orders will also post at the same time.If the Facility wants to Post the On Site Items at a different time/date, a Posting Group Restriction must be set up to allow for the Manual Posting of the On Site items (See Instruction “Establish Item Posting Group”).

Options.The following Options must be set in the “Commissary” Tab.

  • Automatic Order Post: Select “Automatic Post”
  • Scheduled Posting:Checked
  • Order Post Time:Select the time that Orders should be Posted (Local time where Lockdown Server is located).

Restriction.A Restriction titled “Scheduled Posting” must be created to establish the requirements for the Auto Post. Normally, there is one Scheduled Posting Restriction for a Facility, however, Multiple Scheduled Posting Restrictions can be created if required by the Facility (Example:Each day of the Week, a separate Housing Unit’s Orders are Posted).In this case, name the Restrictions “Scheduled Posting – Housing Unit” (Example: Scheduled Posting – Pod A)
