Quick Launch Button Options

Quick Launch Button Options

You can create quick launch buttons to automate many different functions in AmberPOS (see: Creating Quick Launch Buttons). The following options are some commonly used functions. Note that all commands are entered into the "Action" field during quick launch button setup.

All Numbers(0-9) and capital letters (A-Z) are accepted, rest codes can be found here:

eg:

{OemOpenBrackets}{Divide}{C, Shift}ASE{OemCloseBrackets}      will return:       [/Case]

{Oemcomma, Shift}{OemPeriod, Shift}       will return:          <>

 

Insert SKU / Code into Sale

Type in a SKU or code, and the button will enter that information into the "Enter SKU/CODE" field of the sale window. Put "{Enter}" (without quotation marks) after your SKU and the button will automatically add the item to the sale. For example 1024{Enter} will add SKU 1024 into the transaction.  If there are letters in sku codes they should be capitalized in the action field.

 

Change Customer

To change the currently active customer during a sale, use the action: <member ID>{Enter} and the current customer will be changed to the one corresponding to the member ID you entered. Example:

C1465{Enter} will change the current customer to the customer with member ID "C1465".

 

Auto Discount Buttons

To automatically discount the current transaction by a set percentage, you would use the following syntax: {F2}<discount amount>{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Enter}, with the discount amount being the percentage discount. For example:

{F2}5{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Enter}  = 5% Discount

{F2}10{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Enter} = 10% Discount

{F2}20{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Enter} = 20% Discount

 

Auto Select Payment / Transaction Type

You can automatically select a specific type of payment, or a special transaction type by using: {Payment}PaymentTypeOrTransactionType. For example:

{Payment}Visa = Visa Payment

{Payment}Cash = Cash Payment

{Payment}Park = Park Transaction

{Payment}Quotation = Quotation Transaction Type

 

Change Tab

If you have multiple tabs set up for quick launch buttons, you can create a button to automatically select a specific tab by using the option: {TabPage}TabPageName where "TabPageName" is the name of the tab you want to access. For example: {TabPage}Propane will switch to the "Propane" tab.

If you name a tab "MAIN" then it will appear to be selected always by default when you open the AmberPOS software.

Report

Create a shortcut for a report.

{Report}ReportName{Query}PreSavedQueryName

Eg:

{Report}Sales By Clerk{Query}Till Name = [TillName]{BackDays}30

{Report}Inventory By Department

 

Recall transaction

{Recall}TransactionType

Eg:

{Recall}Quotation

 

Change clerk

{Clerk}ClerkUserName

Eg:

{Clerk}Adrian

 

Local pick-up button

{ShipToCustomerID}1-1

This will change the shipping address to the customer ID 1-1 shipping address. This is usually the thank you customer.
