Default iPad Home Screen

Use the Default Home Screen feature to control which screen appears when employees sign into the register and return to after each transaction. Choose from the New Sale screen, where cashiers ring up sales, the Saved Sales screen, where they view and manage sales currently saved on the register, or the Tables screen, where they can view the restaurant floor plan, see available and in-use tables and create saved sales associated with those tables.

Note: This feature is only available on the ShopKeep Register for iOS.
