  1. The options in this section allow you to map fields/values from vinSUITE to their respective counterpart field in DesktopPOS.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: You should reference your item properties in DesktopPOS and ensure you are mapping to the right fields before you do your first item import.

  2. Ignore Item Category On Import: Ticking this box will Ignore the default category coming down from vinSUITE. 

    Department and Category defaults for products:
    First party Wine = Department: WINE | Category: Varietal
    First party Products = Department: Non-Wine | Category: Report Group

  3. Default Item Tax Code: This setting allows you to set a default tax for all imported items that are set to Taxable in vinSUITE

  4. Import SKU as Alias: This feature will combine the user-defined prefix and SKU, and input that for the Alias of the item.
    NOTE: Alias' in our DesktopPOS system are for use with barcode scanners. This field allows you to set a code for your barcode scanner to match to the item record.
