Departments are used primarily for grouping of the stock items, departments

 are beneficial to link the stock items to sales categories and print groups as well as other settings such as sales prompts and stock item points factors. Having correct department links will allow for much more detailed reports. Departments link your stock items to sales categories so for example every item in the lunch department could be linked to the food sales category.

The Department screen looks like the below and can be found under “File > Sales > Departments”

To add or modify a Department you press either the add or modify button down the bottom right hand corner, the next screen looks as below and you can easily input the Description, Sales Category and and Print Group if needed
