Family Checkout
We've just finished a wonderful upgrade to the Family Checkout process and I wanted to take some time to explain the changes and the feature in general. Before anyone panics, there's nothing to relearn after the upgrade. We've kept the steps the same as they've always been but added some helpful messages to the checkout screen as well as made it possible to see the Previous Customer Total and the Balance Due at the same time.

You'll start by going to Maintenance -> Loyalty -> Loyalty Program Settings. On this screen ...
