Login Shortcuts

The Login Shortcuts register allows you to specify the window that will be opened when a user logs in to your Standard ERP system. In some environments (e.g. POS, Production), users usually won't need access the majority of your Standard ERP database, but instead should be taken immediately to the window that they need when they log in.

You can configure the Login Shortcuts register in two ways:

  1. On client machines and tills that have live connections to the server, you must configure this register separately on each client machine. This method is described immediately below.

  2. For tills that have live-sync connections to the server, you should create a separate record for each till in the Local Shortcuts setting in the Technics module. When the till logs in for the first time, the relevant record from the Local Shortcuts setting will be sent to the till automatically, updating the Local Shortcuts register on that till. If you change the record in the Local Shortcuts setting on the main server, the change will be sent to the till as soon as possible. As well as allowing you to configure and maintain all tills in one place, this method also has the advantage of removing the need to back up the databases on each till separately. On updating a till to a new version of Standard ERP and starting that version without a database for the first time, the relevant record will again be sent to the till automatically.
To edit the Login Shortcuts register, ensure you are in the User Settings module and open the list of registers from the Navigation Centre. Then double-click (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap (iOS/Android) 'Login Shortcuts' in the resulting list. The 'Login Shortcuts: Inspect' window opens:

Add a separate line for each user that will use the client machine or till, as follows:
