CounterPoint SQL V8.3.5 Release Notes
Fingerprint reader support
If you have enabled the Use passwords option for your company, you can now use a Radiant POS terminal’s fingerprint reader to log in to CounterPoint, Ticket Entry, or any function that requires a password.
To use this feature, each user must scan his or her fingerprint to associate it with the corresponding User ID and Password. Once a user’s fingerprint has been captured, the user can simply place his or her finger on the fingerprint reader whenever a password is requested, instead of entering a password.
Fingerprint readers are local devices and are not compatible with Windows Terminal Services or Citrix.
On Radiant POS terminals that are equipped with fingerprint readers, the Scan Finger button automatically appears on the Change Password dialog in CounterPoint.
A password must still be defined for each user, even if you intend to use the fingerprint reader as the primary method of identifying users.
To associate your fingerprint with your User ID and Password, click the Scan Finger button to display the Biometric Enrollment dialog, and then place your finger on the sensor that is built in to the Radiant POS terminal to scan your fingerprint.
This dialog prompts you to remove your finger from the scanner and replace it several times. When the scanning process is complete, the dialog closes automatically.
When you log in to CounterPoint or any function that requires a password, clock in or out,
or perform a security override, the
icon appears next to the Password field to indicate
that you can place your finger on the fingerprint reader to identify yourself.
