Revel POS: Use Alternate Lookup for Products with the same Barcode

This Article reviews setting up the Alternate Lookup so the POS will propmt with a choice of Products.  We have noted the Field Labels with a description and how they are used.

Reminder: Use the window on the left to set only the fields you want to display on the right.  Use Set as Default so you do not have to set each time.

Alternate Lookup is defined within the Product Details on the Management Console.

Management Console / Products / Products / Select Product / Basic Product Details / Alternate Lookup. 


Note: On the POS, the value must either be scanned or entered in the Barcode Window as seen in the picture above.
