Number of items in a sale

  In the ROBOTILL Point of Sale system you can print the number of items in a sale on the receipt. The number of items in a sale is not printed on the receipt by default but it can be added in the print design . How the number of items is calculated might not be as straight forward as you think.  The number of items on the receipt will not be the number of line items in the sale. If for example you purchased 3 bottles of water and one can of coke, there will only be 2 line items in the sale, but in the shopping bag there will be 4 items. With other words, the quantity for each line item is used - but not always ... If the item in the sale is a measured item (measured by weight, length or any other measurement), then the quantity for that line item will be ignored and the line item will be counted as one. The reason for this is that the quantity for a measured item will be the weight (length or other measurement) but in a shopping bag it will still be seen as one item.  Loose tomatoes

It resulted in a huge increase in our support team workload as each computer using the one month licence needs to be re-registered on a monthly basis. Customers purchasing the one month licences do not understand that using the one month licence would require then to re-register the PC every month - resulting in a couple of unhappy customers.  We realized that some users only purchase a one month licence to use the label printing feature of ROBOTILL.  We will still make the one month licences available at an i
