Management Area

This is the management area that a user is assigned to. Management areas are used to control what locations, departments and classifications the user has access to. If a user is not assigned to a management area, they will be able to see all locations, departments and classifications if the Management Area is Mandatory setting in System Settings is not checked on (default setting). If this option is checked on, all users must be assigned a management area.

Load Costs In POS

If you make cost information available to salespeople at the POS, you may find the salespeople sell the product at a price just above cost, minimising the profit of the sale. You can increase or 'load' the cost visible to the salespeople so the cost appears higher than it really is. If this option is checked on, this user will see these loaded costs. If the option is checked off, the user will see the normal cost details.

See Loading Costs for more information.
