Advance POS Settings

On the Management Console, navigate to Settings and search for Advance POS Settings.

Setting Description
Auto Logout on Done Non-managers will automatically be logged out of the POS after tapping Done on an order, requiring a user to log in again to create a new order. This is useful for tracking employee’s sales for accountability purposes or for security purposes.
Admin Swipe Login Allows specific users to login by swiping an admin card as oppose to entering the four-digit pin. To purchase these cards please contact your sales representative.
Auto Done If enabled, the order will automatically close when payments equal sales. This is especially useful for QSR establishments that have high volume as it eliminates a click on the iPad to get to a new order.
Barcode Standard Retailers scanning barcodes will need to set up the system to read barcodes. The system is programmed to understand 3 barcode standards. Select from the list the barcode standard that applies to your business so items can scan properly.

UPC-A ---This the most common barcode for retail items in the USA and Canada. This is a fixed length, numeric only symbol that must contain 12 digits.

EAN-13-- This is a fixed length, numeric only symbol that is similar to UPC-A but encodes 13 characters instead of 12. The first digit indicates the country code for the product.

Code128-- This is a variable length and is an alphanumeric symbol capable of encoding digits 0-9, upper and lower case letters A-Z.

To do so, go to Settings (Gear Icon)->Manager->POS Settings->Clock In/Clock out options.
