Accessing Help in CoPOS

You are here:

CoPOS includes an extensive Help system to help you get the most from this easy-to-use, but powerful, point of sale system.

There is information explaining every menu option, keystroke shortcut, system constant, as well as most choice bars. Information can be found by searching and by pressing [F10] almost anywhere.

Help is available at most menu options, but [F10] from the Main Menu provides the most assistance in finding information, as well as providing an expedient way to find your way around CoPOS when you’re unsure of where you want to go. Pressing ESC while viewing Help about an option, you are offered the choice “Run this Option”. Selecting [Yes] opens that option.

By selecting [CTRL-P], or pressing CTRL+P, Help can be sent to a printer or PDF, making it convenient to provide a reference at another location, for example, a printed list of shortcuts at the register.
