Adding a Category

Categories are a way of splitting up products, when products are placed into a category they are grouped under that heading in the Point of Sale screen.


  1. Navigate to the “Admin” section and log in.
  2. Select the “Items” menu in the top left, and then select the “POS Screen Categories” tab at the top of the screen.
  3. To add a new category press the “Add” button at the top of the window.
  4. Name the category using the “Description” box, and give the category an ID:
    1. For the ID we recommend starting at “001” and increasing it by 1 for each new category, so the first category will have the ID “001”, the second will have “002”, the third “003” and so on.
  5. You can further customise a category when or after creating it; the description of each option is as follows:
    1. POS Screen Details:
      1. Display order – This controls the order of the categories shown in the Quick Service menu, with 1 being the first category in the top left.
      2. Max. No. of Items – This allows you to limit the number of products in the category. Once the limit is reached no more can be added.
    2. Style – Allows you to adjust how the category and items in it are displayed.
    3. Product Parameters are settings that affect all items in the category. For example if “Print Label” is ticked then all products in the category will have that setting enabled.
  6. When you are finished, press the “SAVE” button to add the category to this list.
