Sort items in ROBOTILL

Do you have popular items or categories that you want to place in the beginning of the list so that they can easily and quickly be selected? Stock Items (products/menu items) and categories are sorted alphabetically in ROBOTILL. It is however possible to allow specific items to appear in the beginning of the list. This is useful when you want to place the popular items first. This feature is available in the Retail Software module as well as the Restaurant Software module. It is especially useful in the Restaurant module as items are selected and usually not scanned. Importance Weighting For both stock items (menu items) and categories you can now add a importance weight in the setup screen for stock items and categories. The higher the weight the higher items will appear in the list. You can choose a number from 0 - 100 but you don't need to allocate sequential numbers. For example, the items you want on the first page you can add a weight of 2 and then the items on

Allow your tills to work off-line

You can now continue with sales even if the network goes down or if there is a problem with the server. ROBOTILL Version 3.81 has an off-line mode for the retail modules. The new off-line mode is only available for retail modules and not the restaurant modules. Working off-line is only an emergency measure. The system will allow you to continue with sales but a lot of the features will be disabled in off-line mode. For more information about the off-line mode see the help file of ROBOTILL (the off-line mode help is in the retail section of the help). Note: You should only set up the off-line system if you have multiple tills and really need to be able to work if the network goes down. The off-line system requires additional resources so it is not recommended for customers who do not need it. The FREE edition of the Point of Sale Software can be downloaded from the ROBOTILL Website .
