Point of Sale Settings
When you select POS Settings (left-hand vertical menu under "Settings"), you see the “POS Settings” landing page. This is where you (Franchisors) apply your “Permission Settings” pertaining to products sold by Franchisees. Additionally, you will see a number of "Configuration Settings" pertaining to the POS (outlined in the sections below).
Updating Permission Settings
Franchisors may choose to toggle these settings on and off according to a Franchisee's level of permissions within the POS. Once the Franchisees can create their own items? option is toggled on (image below), two more options appear. With each option toggled on Franchisees will have more functionality unlocked for creating and managing POS items.
Permission Settings Breakdown
Each toggle switch within the “POS Settings” page affects a Franchisee's ability to manage, create, and/or customize products within the Point of Sale. Here is a breakdown of each switch:
|Franchisees can create their own items?||If disabled, the "Create Item" menu is not visible to Franchisee|
|Franchisees can create subscribable items?||If disabled, Franchisee is not able to create a product with the "Subscribable" property (The "Franchisees can create their own items?" switch must be toggled on for this to be active)|
|Approval for Item Creation and Changes?||If disabled, Franchisee will NOT require approval for new items created or changed (The "Franchisees can create their own items?" switch must be toggled on for this to be active)|
|Can change item name?||Enables/Disables a franchisee's ability to edit the Name field, within "Manage Items"|
Configuration Settings for POS
There are a number of Configuration Settings available to Franchisors from the POS Settings page. Each setting applies to the various aspects of the Point of Sale and need to be customized to ensure Franchisees and Facilities are prepared to manage and sell products and services.
FCOS Look/Feel Updates
The Configuration Settings section may look different from the image above but the settings available in this section are the same. This image will be updated as FCOS is updated.
Configuration Settings Breakdown
Although most of the setting' names are straightforward with naming what each corresponds to, let's breakdown what each setting covers in a little more detail:
|Email Settings||Configure a unique footer for your email invoices|
|Item Categories||Setup your item category hierarchy and/or create new categories for your POS items|
|Item Rejection||Configure your reasons for denying an item submitted by a Franchisee (this setting is valid only if the "Franchisees can create their own items?" POS Setting is toggled ON)|
|Item Image Designation||Configure names and acceptable sizes for image to accompany POS items (e.g. Icon 64x64)|
