Your Casio VR terminal utilizes Departments for two general purposes.
Like groups, they are also used for reporting to categorise products, however sit below groups in the hierarchy. Taking the group “food” as an example, appropriate departments may be “Entrees” and “Starters” etc.
Departments may also be used to generate your menu pages. For example, all PLU’s linked to starters can be used to generate a page of starters.
To program a department firstly start by selecting the group that will be associated (linked) to it by dropping down the list of groups and choosing the appropriate one.
Now type in your new department name and select “Add Department”
Like the Group file previously, a list of your departments will be presented on the right side of the screen, and an edit link is provided to make changes to the description and group link if required.
