Activate and use the MPOS editor

The MPOS editor gives users the option to set POS actions and buttons directly from within the MPOS UI, without having to work in Business Central back office in parallel. However, to make sure it’s operational, you first need to activate it by following the provided steps:

  1. Click the Lightbulb button, enter POS Layouts and open the related link.

  2. Create a New layout.

  3. Provide a unique Code which will help differentiate the layout from the others in the list.

  4. (Optional) Add the Template Name.
    You can view all available templates and choose the one that suits your business needs best once you open the POS.

  5. Open the POS Unit List, and choose the POS unit you wish to apply the MPOS layout to (or create a new one).
    The POS Unit Card is displayed.

  6. In the Profiles tab of the POS Unit Card select the layout you’ve previously created from the POS Layout Code dropdown.

  7. Open the POS.
    If you’re opening it for the first time, you can choose the one you’ve edited from the pop-up window that is displayed. Otherwise, you can choose your POS unit in the User Setup.

  8. Click the icon, to open the POS Editor.

  9. If the MPOS-friendly layout isn’t applied, click New Layout, and then New Layout again.

  10. Make sure the toggle switch points to the Mobile Layout option, and add the Layout Name.


    The screen shrinks in size to match the mobile device screen as the result.


  11. Save the layout, and log in.
    Once you’re logged into the MPOS in the browser, you can use the POS Editor to edit buttons, upload a logo, and choose which options will be available to MPOS users.
