Tracking user ID at POS when there are multiple operators

My POS like many stores will be a single cash draw, which is shared between several operators in the same open session.

Example: We have User1 who opens the store and creates a new POS session. They work 8am-1pm and go home User2 comes in at 11am-5pm and works at the same time as User1, on the same cash draw.

Ideally each user scans their ID barcode before starting a POS sale.

How can I track who entered which sales and can both users be logged in at the same time?

We've been using OpenERP v7 for some time, but also recently added an Odoo v9 installation and I can confirm that this feature is present in the new POS module -- simply tap the logged-in user's name at the top of the POS screen to switch the salesperson that the current sale is assigned to. In our instance, we open and close the session with a generic store user, but the floor staff switch to their name whenever they put a sale through. This allows us to track the effectiveness of each salesperson in retail clothing store.

Technically this should also be possible by scanning a barcode (follow the barcode nomenclature then add the barcode as the EAN in the salesperson's user card) but I could never get it to work under v7 and I have not yet tried it under v9.
