Unlike the preceding two summary levels the Session entity's time interval is bounded by a SessionStartDateTimeStamp and a SessionEndDateTimeStamp. A Session summarizes all activity performed by a specific Operator at a specific Workstation. Session is intended to support point of sale auditing and control; and
•Workstation Level Reporting Period Summary (blue) includes WorkstationHistory. This entity rolls up transaction data by Workstation. This entity supports retailers that choose to implement tender control and sales/return accountability to individual workstations.
