Brand New to Quickbooks – How do I log our first deposit?

Question:

Brand New to Quickbooks – How do I log our first deposit?  We are a small food place and I’m not certain how I should code everything.  I saw a post that said I needed to create a daily summary account?  I do not know how to do this?  We do get a Z report from the register each day and do accept credit cards which automatically deposit in account.

Please help I will need step by step instructions as I’m new and this is so confusing.  Thanks
