The Ticket Meddler panel is used to fix-up the kegs, cases, costs, etc. for tickets and Orders. It will scan all orders within the date range then automatically corrects any issues with them. The SuperScreen can also be used to Validate the Reckeys or Warehouse Adjustments.
In order to access the SuperScreen, the correct access code must be provided. The access code is given by a Rutherford employee. This generator provides time-sensitive codes that contains inclusive dates. This access code is to prevent accidental changes to the SuperScreen which could cause potential problems in the database.
In October 2009, the ability to move multiple tickets back in the queue was added.
There are levels of access available for each individual employee or a specific employee department. The Permissions Panel limits or expands the field of access towards certain functions of eoStar and also creates a level of security.
