EPOS Stock Type Lookup

The EPOS system allows the user drill down through stock types to get to a specific group of items. The EPOS till will display the level 1 and 2 stock types. Setting up Stock Types for EPOS is a recommended prerequisite, for more information see Prerequisites Stock Type EPOS Descriptions.

Stock Items can be prevented from appearing in the stock lists by unticking the Publish to EPOS option in the [ Stock | Detail | Options ] screen.

Stock Type Level 1

All EPOS screens by default will display Level 1 Stock Types. EPOS Stock Type descriptions must be previously setup in [ System Data | Stock Types ].


Stock Type Level 2

If you click on a Level 1 Stock Type the system will drill down to the Level 2 Stock Type. EPOS Stock Type descriptions must be previously setup in [ System Data | Stock Types ].


  • Start button: resets the screen back to the Stock Type Level 1 view.
  • Back button: returns to the previous Stock Type Level.

EPOS Stock Lookup

Once a Stock Type Level 2 is selected then an EPOS Stock Lookup will appear. This is a simplified version of the regular sales order Stock Item Lookup and contains the Refresh and Add buttons.

  • Stock Code: filter by stock code or part of the stock code.
