Would really like to use POS in our warehouse. Most of our customers work on credit. Can we add a Pay Later button? So pressing the pay later button would mean- sales invoice or delivery note is created and accounts receivable entry added against the customer. This along with default mode being user definable should be great!
Another function that we could use is prioritizing customers/ orders.
An email or update being sent automatically to customer email/phone should be a great feature!
Is it possible to hide prices from certain users in POS?
I see too many buttons, colors, tabs and fields, especially if it’s gonna work for touch…!
I believe any UI intended for use on the shop-floor or in a store-environment should be self explanatory. Rather few and huge buttons with ultra-snappy response to navigate hierarchies than one UI does it all (and requires a manual + glasses to use it)
Hey backers @rmehta want to claim the bounty based on POS Redesign For me I think there are few features in the bounty left out:
1- customer queue, where we can have more than one cart active and switch between them
2- easy fast way to edit customer details
3- Numeric keypad to enter value in quantity and rate field
4- Email option to send print of the invoice
I assumed issue (1) is solved because you can open as many invoices as possible and switch between them by clicking the list button (the one beside the new invoice button directly by the select or add new customer field)
(2) is very necessary
(4) is also very necessary
(3) is ideal to enhance the touch screen experience
Can we add text field(Notes) in the POS and you can add the table information in that field. This field will be display in the toggle list view, or you can create the customer based on table no and make invoice against them
I also would love to see Restaurant module in POS. Would open a whole new segment for ERPNEXT. But I feel one step at a time is the need. Once the new POS passes UAT then Restaurant POS can be taken up. Whilst doing restaurant it would be appropriate to work on Hotel management module (bookings, rooms, occupancy, Telephone billing etc).
A big thank you to all the folks who are contributing with development, time, money and feedback.
