Consider the situation when there is one management office with computer and several stories/outlets or restaurant running Abacre Point of Sale.
1. One big database is located in the management office's computer. Then all stories/outlets connect to this single database. The major problem of using this case is that the Internet connection may slow between the outlets and the management office computer.
2. Each outlet has own database. In this case the management may want to see consolidated sales data for all outlets. To support this case we implemented Sync Store window.
Below we explain how to setup the second case (when each outlet has own database).
On each outlet you need to go to menu Configuration - Stock Locations.
Then go to menu Configuration - Workstations. Verify that for each workstation you have Store1 as sales location.
What is workstation name? it's computer name as defined in Windows for your computer. You may change it into any name via Windows Control Panel - search for computer name and change it into something like: Store1 (or use any unique name).
The setup of the outlet is ready. Repeat it for all outlets. You need to do these actions only once.
Then setup the management office computer. On this computer you need to use a clean database. For example, you may take artpos.fdb and create a copy of it, for example, you may call it all.fdb. Then open the program and on Login window press More button. Then path to database: all.fdb
For example, Outlet 1 has store1.fdb database. Each day (or several times a day) you need to transfer this file into the management computer.
The working procedure is the following:
Press Sync button.
It will start synchronization process. After completion of the synchronization process you will see Done1 message.
Thus, you may consider that all.fdb file is used only for reporting purposes. Don't create new orders, clients, items on it. You need to create it directly on individual outlet's fiels: store1.fdb, store2.fdb.
What is cannot be synced yet in the latest version:
Note: Store Sync is available in Standard and Professional licenses of software.
