Main Screen Keys Setup

The AccuPOS Main Screen Keys setup interface is a fast and convenient way to lay out the look and flow of your POS screens.

This page is a step-by-step guide that applies whether you just installed AccuPOS for the first time, or you are editing menus and button that already exist on you system.

Opening the Main Screen Keys Interface

In Management, open the Manage Tab and select Main Screen Keys from the dropdown, or click the Set POS Keys icon in the Front End section.

The Main Screen Keys Sections

Below is a diagram of the Keys, which is split up into four general sections:

  1. Your Item List – Where you will find the inventory items that you’ll be making buttons out of.
    Here you can list all your items or only search for certain keywords, as well as search only in the items’ description, type and code.

  2. Key Set & Menu Pages- Where you add/edit your key sets (if you use them), and add and choose which menu page is currently displayed.

  3. Button Layout Area – This shows a preview of what the current menu’s buttons will look like, and allows you to move and create new buttons.
    The top two rows are dedicated to your menu pages, and the remaining buttons below are item buttons.

  4. Button Editing Area – Where you set each button’s particular look and function: text, size, button color, text color, type, item or page that it is attached to, and more.
