Parent categories in the POS module (e.g. All, Starters, Main Courses, Desserts) are used to group categories which contain items, optimising search and transaction times.
Parent category buttons are located in the POS module, as highlighted below.
This page will guide you on customising the parent categories to meet your needs.
Get to the page below via Homepage > Settings > POS > POS Buttons
Tap on the highlighted drop-down box, just beneath the title.
A pop-up window will appear, enabling you to edit the parent categories.
The four categories, by default, will appear identical to the highlighted image below. Each of them may be customised, except the All category, which cannot be changed.
After selecting the category you wish to customise, which will be apparent as it will become highlighted in blue, tap the Type field, followed by tapping Custom Category.
The window will expand, enabling you to set the parameters for your custom parent category.
Tap the highlighted field and, using the keypad, enter a name for the parent category (e.g. Desserts). This caption will be displayed underneath the icon.
Tap the highlighted button and choose, from the preset list, an icon for your parent category.
Choose which categories appear in the category bar when the parent category is selected.
The Red Cross indicates the category will not be shown when tapping this parent category, whereas the Green Check Mark indicates that it will be shown.
