This section explains how to add and edit concession items. Whenever adding items, cloning items is better than adding items from the concession list. When cloning, the item will then copy settings such as station items and the subtotal. Once you've added an item via cloning, you must still add it to touch screen.



Concession Item List

The Concession Item List greatly improves the clarity and speed of creating new concession items.

In RTS, navigate to: Setup –> Concessions –> Items. This will display all your items currently in your database.

Note: If an item was deleted and you would like to add it back into the system, navigate to Setup –> Concessions –> Restore and restore the item.

  1. Select ADD to create a new blank item or CLONE to create a copy of an existing item with a new name.

  2. Enter a name for the item.
  3. Enter a price and assign a subtotal from the drop-down.

  4. Either load an image or set the color styling for the text.

  5. Select SETTINGS tab and fill out accordingly.

  6. Select SALES TAX tab if the item is taxed.
    (If your sales tax is not available, please contact technical support at support@rts-solutions.com and we will add your tax rate to the software. Please include a tax table from your State's Department of Revenue, with the exact tax amount for prices from $0.01 up to $100.00.)

  7. Select FEES tab if you have any additional fees to add to this item.
  8. Repeat steps 1-7 for each item you wish to create then select "SAVE when done.

Station Items

  1. Navigate to: Setup -> Concessions -> Station Items.

    SU Concessions StationItems.PNG

  2. Set "Current Station" to be one of your selling station numbers.
  3. Highlight the item in the "Main Item" list, select the "<-" button to move the item to the "Station Items" list.
  4. For "Type" choose "Selling", for "Stock From" choose "Stockroom1".
  5. Select "Save".
  6. Select "Close".

This will add the new item, and set the station it will be sold from. It will also set the properties of how it is treated for Inventory purposes. The item will be treated as a "Selling" item, and the item will be pulled from the "Stockroom1" location when sold.

Touch Screen Layout

Once all the items are added to the system, and in the appropriate stations, a touch screen layout will need to be built:

  1. In RTS, navigate to: Setup -> Concessions -> Touch Screen Layout -> Employee Station.

    SU Concessions TouchScreenLayout EmployeeStation.PNG

  2. Set the "Current Station" to be your first concession station number.
  3. For each item you wish to sell, highlight the item and click inside the space on the selling screen where you wish that items button to be.
  4. When the selling screens are set up, you can select: "Save" to save this station, and then use "Save As" to copy this setup to a different station number.


NOTES: If you have more items than spaces on the screen, you can spread the items over multiple screens by using either the screen number items or the "Next" and "Previous" items on each screen. If you wish the concession station to be able to sell tickets also, add the "Tickets" item to the layout. These buttons can be found at the bottom of the item list on the left-hand side of the window.

Creating a New Station Based Off of an Existing One

If you wish to add a station at a later date, you can copy the current station config to the new number as follows:

In RTS, go to: Setup -> Concessions -> Station Items.

  1. Change the "Current Station" to be the existing station you want to copy.
  2. Select "Save As".
  3. Highlight the station you wish to copy the config to.
  4. Select "OK".
  5. Select "Close".


In RTS, go to: Setup -> Concessions -> Touchscreen Layout -> Employee Station.

  5. Select "Close".
