I agree it would be great to have more control over the design of the pos screen. I know there was a discussion a while back where it was suggested having a custom entity type screen for the post screen so we could design it how we wanted etc
I’d also like to be able to make product buttons different sizes, I use custom product buttons for all my “main screen” buttons and it would be good to have some in different sizes, however this is not possible at the moment.
The only control over the size of the product buttons currently is to select the number of columns and the height, you will always only get a grid of same size buttons
Except for the fact, the POS screen is not cutomizable, at on of my places that Ive gone to look at POS sysstems is XChangeSuite. the example they showed had aout 10 categories with each category having over 40 different buttons of varying sizes in each.
I was pointing out, one of the reasons people tend to go towards the big brans POS solutions is for the customisation. And I was really interested in the ability to draw out my own keypad and Im sure many people as well are.
I disagree honestly most go for them for the support and ease of setup. Support being the biggest draw. Sambapos is infinitely more configurable. But Bigger companies especially NCR who power the worlds largest retailers and chains have infinitely more resources so it really is bad to compare the two systems this way. Sambapos will eventually have every feature we want.
NCR powers Walmarts system. So infinite resources may even be underestimating it.
He would have to completely redesign it as it is now. It’s not about difficulty it’s more of is it useful enough to rewrite that completely and then work through issues with that. I think we should wait for v6 for a change like that.
