Custom POS Button for SKU items number use most


E

Ed

Hello,

I have 4 SKU Item numbers that our cashier is having to press F2 to lookup a
lot. Retail have asked if we can place these 4 items on the custom button to
the right of the screen. Does anyone know how to get the custom button to
work on the right side of the screen.

if this is RMS you are using, you could create macros to replay the sku with
Ctl-F3 then replay them using the Alt-F1 - Alt-F4 keys during the transaction.

You will need to know the Item ID of each items you want to create a button
for.
Query to find Item ID = SELECT ID FROM Item WHERE ItemLookupCode = 'xxx'

In Manager click on Database --> Registers --> Custom POS Button.
Settings:
Number: next available number
Style: Internal Command
Caption: Anything you want
Command: PerformAddItem x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7 (notice the spaces after
each comma)
x1 = Item ID
x2= Item Lookup Code
x3 = Quantity
x4 = Override Price (0 = No, 1 = Yes)
x5 = Price
x5 = Override Description (0 = No, 1 = Yes)
x7 = Description
Example:
PerformAddItem 1, 1000001, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0

At the POS you will need to make sure "Display custom buttons on the right
side" selected under Ctrl + F6 Screen --> Transaction Screen tab.

Why not just print the 4 barcode labels to plain paper and tape it to the
monitor for the cashier to scan. Or create an alias for each of the 4
items - 1, 2, 3 and 4 that the cashier can just key in.

I would recommand just settig up 4 alias codes ( tye can be any combination
of letter and numbers) way easier and faster to setup and use.

Rob,

Can this be preformed with the RMS HQ Item ID vs. the Item ID in Store
database. I have been able to get it to work with the store Item ID in the
Lab, but I have not been successful in getting it to work with the HQ Item
ID, which is the same for all stores as the store Item ID is different for
all stores.

I am looking to see if there is a way to standardize this process.

Unfortunately as you have found out that is not possible. PerformAddItem is an internal function of the software and was not designed to work in that fashion.
