POS info card

POS info is used for capturing additional information on sales, items or customers on the POS. This information on sales can be used for statistics or further analysis on sales. You need to define a POS menu button that the salesperson can press to assign additional information to the sale. Furthermore, you can predefine static information regarding items and customers.
