Tills - Location

This tab allows you to define details that apply to all the POS in the same location such as receipt headers and footers and customer display messages. If you change the details here for one POS at a location and then retrieve the details for another POS at the same location, the changed details will be visible.

Figure: Example Tills Screen

Customer Display Message

Message that appears on the customer display.

Recall Location

To allow sales to be recalled from a location other than it’s own so that the user can see held transactions from any location within the group.

Allow Back Office Support

The Back Office Till Control function will attempt to communicate with the tills in its area. In order for this to work, this option must be checked on. However, sometimes this functionality may not work due to networks issues. You can check the option off to prevent problems with tills that want to try to use this functionality and can't.


This grid allows you to specify the Shifts that are available for all POS at the same location.

Day Of Week

The day of the week this shift can be used. You can select 'Any Day' to indicate the shift can be used any day of the week. You can define an overall set of shifts for 'Any Day' and another set for a specific day of the week. The POS will always use the specific day, if any exist. If not exist then it will use the 'Any Day' shifts.


The shift that is available for the Location/ Day Of Week. These are defined using the Shifts function.


The code of the keyboard to be used. If no keyboard is defined, the POS will use the code set on the Keyboard option on the Basic tab. This allows you to have one keyboard set up for breakfast and another for lunch and to display the appropriate keyboard depending on the shift selected.

Default Fast Key Level

The default fastkey panel on the keyboard to be displayed at the start of each transaction. If no value is set, it will try to use the Default Fast Level option on the Profile - Settings 1 tab.  

Default Fast Level (Takeaway)

This is similar to the Default Fast Level but is the level that will be displayed for takeaway sales. This allows you to have one keyboard defined for a till but to allow a different level to be shown for eat in or takeaway sales. If no value is set, it will try to use the Default Fast Level (Takeaway) option on the Profile - Settings 1 tab.  

Item Menu

The default Item Menu that should be used for this shift. This allows you to link a Breakfast menu to a breakfast shift. If an Item Menu is not entered, the user will simply manually select their item menu as they have always done.



The languages that the POS is able to use.

Note: This is a location wide setting so all POS in the same location will use the same language settings.

There will only be records in this grid if Available Languages have been set up, which is only required if you want to support multi-language POS. One of these languages will be marked as the primary language. POS will download the data required for those languages.

Use This Language

This option should be checked on to indicate whether the language should be used at the POS, that is the information displayed on the POS is shown in that language for the operator to read. Only check on the languages you really need. Each language does add to the reload time so you don't want to download languages that are not required. Receipts are not printed in this language.

Primary Language

This option indicates whether this language is the primary language for the POS. The default primary language will be the primary language specified in Available Languages but you can change this as required. So English might be the primary language for most POS but at some locations German is the primary language.

If you are using the multi-language feature, you must have at least one record which has the Use This Language and the Primary Language options checked on.

Headers And Footers

This area contains the header and footer lines that are printed at the top/bottom of various receipts. These are the different messages available.

Receipt Hdr

This will print at the start of a normal sales receipt. It would normally include details such as transaction number, date, and so on.

Receipt Ftr

This will print at the end of a normal sales receipt. It would normally be a message like 'Thank you for shopping with us!'

Gift Cert Hdr

This will print at the top of gift certificates (only when you have the system print gift certificates automatically).

Credit Note Hdr

This will print at the top of credit notes (only when you have the system print gift certificates automatically).

MPOS Receipt Hdr

To allow the header for the mobile receipt to be edited.

MPOS Receipt Ftr

To allow the footer for the mobile receipt to be edited.

Kitchen Hdr

This will print at the top of kitchen printer receipts. This is similar to Receipt Hdr but does not need all the details as its only visible to the chefs in the kitchen.

Voucher Hdr

This will print at the top of discount vouchers.


This will print at the end of a normal receipt, if you ask for an entertainment receipt. To print entertainment receipts you will need the Ask Entertainment On Reprint option on the Printing tab to be checked on. Then when you do a reprint of a receipt, you will be asked if you want an entertainment receipt.

You can define your own format for the transaction header that would appear at the top of a receipt. You can use various keywords to indicate values that the system will automatically fill in when the receipt is printed. When a receipt is printed, the system checks for the existence of any keywords in the receipt header. If any are found then it prints only your defined receipt header. It will not print the standard transaction header.

If no keywords are found, the system uses the following transaction header:



Receipt :


Transaction :


Time :


Operator :


Till :   


Table :


Covers :


Customer :






Reference :


Stock Adj :


Transfer To :


If the keyword was to be replaced by an empty value (for example, if you aren't doing a transfer then <TFRTOCODE> would be empty), the entire line that the keyword is on will not be printed. This means that you can put in all the possible transaction details and know that it will only print the available information.

See list of available receipt keywords.
