Category Setup




The Category Setup configuration is where you organize your products and services as they will be displayed in your POS System.

Categories are selected during Item and Bundle setup and display in the left panel of your POS user interface.

Configuring Categories

The form to add a Category and Subcategory in the right section of the user interface is the same. There is a slight difference however, on how to activate the form when you add a Subcategory (see Adding a Subcategory Below).

Adding a Category

To Add a Category:

  1. From the Launch Pad, click the System Configuration icon in the left navigation panel.
  2. In the Inventory, Activities & Related Settings section, select Category Setup.
  3. In the Categories section (left), click Add.
  4. Select New Category from the pop-up list. This activates the Create Category section (right).
  5. Enter the Category Name.
  6. If you would like to inactivate the Category, select the Inactive check box. If not, leave it cleared.
  7. Click the Color Selector icon to the right of the Display Color field and select a color. The HTML color code, with the font in the actual color, will display in the Display Color field. This color code displays for that Category in POS (See above Screen Shot).
  8. Enter a description of the Category in the Description text box.
  9. Within the Staff Work Role Restrictions box, select whether the work role has the ability to sell and/or return items in that category. Select the checkbox next to 'Ability to Sell' to enable selling for all work roles and click the checkbox next to 'Ability to Return' to enable returns for all work roles. Note that if a user attempts to return an item that they do not have permission to return, an error displays and they are prompted to enter a PIN for another user with permission.
  10. Click the Save button.
