How To Setup Hot Keys


Hot Keys are located below the shopping cart and are designed for you to be able to quickly add items to the shopping cart rather than searching for them or scanning a barcode or UPC. You can toggle whether to show or hide the Hot Keys with the arrow on the lower left side of the shopping cart. You are limited to eight (8) Menus with twenty one (21) buttons on each menu, for a total of 168 buttons.

    Note: the font color always stays black so stick to lighter colored buttons to make sure you can still read them.
  9. If you need to move a button once it’s placed, you can hold down the shift key on the key board then click and drag the button to the new location. If you drop it on top of an existing button the two will swap places.
