POS Button Groups

When configuring the buttons that will appear in the POS Invoice and/or Bar Tab windows, you may need different sets of Buttons to be used, depending on how a particular till or cash machine will be used. For example in a restaurant you might need different sets of buttons to appear on the tills in the food area compared to the tills in the bar. You can implement this using POS Button Groups.

To work with POS Button Groups, follow these steps:

  1. Working in the POS Button Groups setting in the Point of Sales or Restaurant modules, create a separate record for each area where you need different buttons to be used. Continuing the example, you will need two records, one for the food area and one for the bar. Specify a Code and a Comment for each one:

  2. Create the POS Button records that you need, assigning each one to the relevant Button Group (i.e. assign each POS Button record to the food area or to the bar).

  3. The next step is to assign each till to a Button Group. Working separately on each till, specify a Button Group on the 'POS’ card in the Local Machine setting in the User Settings module.

    If a till will have a live-sync connection with the server, specify the Button Group in the record for the till in the Local Settings setting in the Technics module before connecting the till to the server. The Button Group will then be sent to the till as part of the synchronisation process.

    You must ensure that for each Button Group you create a POS Button record in which the Page is "1" (described as a "Page 1" record in this documentation). The "Page 1" record will contain the buttons that will be displayed in new POS Invoices or Bar Tabs. Continuing the example, the "Page 1" record for the food area will contain the buttons that will be displayed in new POS Invoices or Bar Tabs created on tills in the food area, while the "Page 1" record for the bar will contain the buttons that will be displayed in new POS Invoices or Bar Tabs created in the bar. If you are using both POS Invoices and Bar Tabs with the same Button Groups, you will need four "Page 1" records, for POS Invoices/food area, Bar Tabs/food area, POS Invoices/bar and Bar Tabs/bar.

  4. When you create a new POS Invoice or Bar Tab, the buttons shown in the window will depend on the Button Group of the till you are using:

    Buttons designed for the food area will not be used on tills in the bar and vice versa.
