Quick articles

The quick articles are articles that can be selected using the direct image buttons. In the article master, you create an article characteristic in the characteristic tree and assign the articles there. You can then determine which characteristic of the article characteristic tree is to be used.

All articles that correspond to this characteristic are then placed on the speed dial keys. If images are assigned to the articles in the article master, these are automatically provided with image keys in the POS module.

Tip: Note that you should use a characteristic with less than 100 articles as a quick article. When the POS module is started, all articles for the characteristic are read. The article numbers and article images are then assigned to the speed-dial keys.

If you now have many articles in the trunk and all articles are selected using the quick feature, it can take several minutes to call up the POS module unnecessarily.

entrepotWhen using the multi-warehouse module, you can use this selection list to determine from which storage location this POS system is to be used.

Number range details

You can copy an existing POS number range. The number range"cash document" serves as a"copy template". Click on it and press the "Copy" button. The name of the document area must then be overwritten and have a new unique name. It is also necessary that the name begins with "CashDocument" in the name.

You can then enter a description for this document number range in the next dialog box.

Details on quick articles

The cash register module has article shortcut keys. You decide which articles you want to place on these speed-dial keys using a characteristic of the article. To do this, select the cash register to which you would like to add quick articles and click on "Change" (1).

By pressing button (2), all article characteristics are displayed in the characteristic tree.

When you reinstall, only the main feature is displayed. You can copy this or create your own characteristics in the article master.

Index card - Cashier General

In this dialog you save the cash rates for foreign currencies and the means of payment to be accepted.

Illustration: General settings

Currencies


The cash register allows you to use independent rates for the individual currencies in the cash register area. In this way, you can calculate the effort involved in changing exchange rates.


To add new currencies, press the "Cursor down" key in the last line. A new line is added and can contain the new data. It is saved automatically when the line is left.


Currencies that are not required should be deleted. The currencies stored here refer only to the cash registers and are therefore independent of the exchange rates of the invoice writing.

Index card - Payment methods


Payment methods that you wish to accept can be entered here. You insert a new payment method by pressing the "Cursor down" key in the last line. A new line is added and can contain the new data. It is saved automatically when the line is left. You should only define the necessary payment methods, since the buttons for payment selection are changed proportionally in the display. The buttons become narrower with increasing payment methods.

Unused payment methods should be deleted.

Index card - Cash register display

In this dialog you can define a cash register display for each cash register for customer display. The interfaces COM1-COM4 are supported.

Illustration: POS display settings

Cash

Select the POS for which you would like to set up a POS display in the selection box.

COM port

If no display is connected to the selected POS, the option "No COM port" must be selected
The customer display integrated in TouchPos 8100 is installed on COM4 by default. All other displays are external devices.

The COM interface is initialized with 9600 baud, no parity, 8 data bits and one stop bit.

Display driver


Select one of the supported devices. If your device is not available, you can contact the support of EULANDA® under the telephone number 06126-9373-600 and ask whether the device is now supported or whether you would like a quotation for the creation of a special driver.

Ansi characters


All newer displays support the ANSI character set. If the umlauts cannot be displayed on your cash register display, deselect this option. In this case, the older IBM character set is used. Use the"Test output" button to output a two-line text with umlauts. This allows you to check whether your POS display is set correctly.


Light


Most cash register displays allow the adjustment of brightness and contrast, respectively the adjustment of the backlight. The settings are not stored in the EEPROM of the POS display, but in EULANDA®.

Test edition


By pressing the "Test output" button, a two-line text is displayed on the POS display to test the COM port and the selected driver. The second line of the test output also contains umlauts to test the character set of the display. If the umlauts are not displayed, change the ANSI setting under "Driver".

Please note that when using several tills, the till display must be set separately for each till.

Teller
