Management Console Tour

By Kelsey | Updated


Your Management Console ([yoursubdomain] is where you'll input, configure, and edit all data that will show on your Point of Sale. This will include products, employees, and customers, to name a few. The Management Console also allows you to manage your inventory quantities, view detailed reports, and customize your settings.

Upon joining Revel, you received an emailed titled Joining the REVELution. This email contains your Revel URL, username, and password for the Management Console. If you did not receive this email, and you are the main Point of Contact, check your spam folder first. If you are not able to locate the email, contact Revel Support for your login information.


Accessing the Management Console

The first step to access your Management Console is to log into your Revel URL. To log in:

  1. Enter your Revel URL in your internet browser. The browsers that support the Revel URL are Chrome (this is the one we recommend), Safari, and Firefox.
  2. After entering your Revel URL, you'll see a field for your username and password. Enter the username and password found in your welcome email. Please note, both the username and password are case sensitive, so enter them exactly as they appear in your email.
  3. Once you are logged in, a video will appear that contains an overview of the latest updates to your Management Console. Allow the video to play through in order to close it from the screen.
  4. After the video, a window will appear that contains your Establishment information. Fill out your information accordingly and then click Save.
  5. At the top of the site, you'll see your username displayed. Directly under that, you'll see the current Establishment you're logged into. If you have multiple establishments with Revel, click the establishment line to open the menu for all your establishments.
  6. In the top corner of your Management Console, you can change the language, find the version information for the Management Console and POS, find helpful articles from the Revel Support site, change your login password, and logout of the Management Console.
