this should work well @emre, good idea!!
im obviously still setting this all up (and waiting for next update so the custom buttons dont create tickets )
heres a sample of the flow, below is the main screen (by no means finished still trying things out) press nappy cake custom button and you are taken to the nappy cake products (set up as a menu so we can use the change menu action to move between categories)
nappy cake category (menu) ive added boys moses basket to ticket
press the back button to go back to the main pos screen
now i could split this up further and create menus for boys nappy cakes, girls nappy cakes, neutral nappy cakes to create my own categories but using menus. Then each sub category would have a back button to go back from boys nappy cakes menu (only displays boy products) into nappy cake menu (displays buttons for girls, boys, neutral) and a "home" button so if we are 3 menus in instead of pressing back to go back through all the menus to the beginning we can press "home" and be taken straight back to the main pos screen
This is ideal for retail setup where no categories are needed as everything has a barcode, but if barcode is missing or doesnt scan we have the option to go into categories (set up as menus) to manually add a product!!
Great work Emre this is working really well and opens up a completely different way of setting up menus/categories and as you suggested earlier today it could work well for a bar setup so i might even re-design my bar menu and categories using this setup.......... very interesting
