POS Keyboards - Basic

Each POS Keyboard is made up of a collection of fast key panels, state panels, modifiers and set meals. This tab allows you to name the keyboard definition and to define the fast key panels available on the POS. Before you add new fast key panels it is a good idea to set up the options on the Default Values tab.

Note: Fast Key Panels with the same level number can be created as long as the ‘Effective Date’ is different.

Effective Date

The Effective Date is a setting which allows Fast Key Panels to be created prior to the date in which they are to become ‘Active’ on POS.

Note: In order for a Fast Key Panel to become active, POS requires a ‘Configuration Reload’.
