This article covers safe counts, an R365 feature that allows organizations to log and track cash counts. 

When enabled, users can create a safe count entry and enter the petty cash currently in the safe, the entering manager, and the receiving manager. When the cash totals are entered, the safe count form will calculate any over/short amounts. 

The over/short amount is calculated by comparing the actual total in the safe and the expected total in the safe. The over/short amount is  the dollar amount over or short the actual total is compared to the expected amount, which can be set by editing the safe count settings. 

This safe count tracking allows users to keep monitor over/short amounts and the Managers associated with them. Safe Counts is not dependent on any other Cash Management features.
