_____General Use__________________________

The Tip All Tip Jar allows your guests to pay one object and have the tip distributed equally between all of the staff working. This allows guests to pay everyone at once!

The owner adds avatar keys to a notecard for all the staff that can be paid. Owner sets whether staff needs to be present or not, the max range in meters they can be, and whether to limit range to within the parcel or not.

When a tip is paid the script will split it between everyone eligible (within set area) at the time. If there is not enough money to split between everyone, staff will be paid in the order they are listed in the notecard.

The owner can take a percentage off the top, before the amount is split. And three additional owners can be added to the settings. The three extra owners will get an equal share, same as the other staff, but will not be required to be present.

_____Setup Instructions_____________________

Rez a copy of the Tip All Tip Jar somewhere.

Open the object in EDIT/BUILD menu. Go to the "Content" tab.

Add staff keys to Keys List notecard, one per line. Avatars will be paid in order they are listed in notecard, so place more important keys towards the top.

Edit the Configuration Notecard inside the object to set your settings, and save notecard. (See next section for details.)

You should see a pop-up dialog menu asking if you should "Reset" or "Cancel." Choose "Reset" if ready for your new settings to take effect. (You can also Touch and choose "Reset" from owner menu.)

You will be asked for permission to "Take Lindens from you? Click yes. This allows the script to pay employees and extra owners when tipped.

Touch the object for more options by Menu. See below sections for more details.
