Show Toolbar

CostGuard has a handy toolbar displayed across the top of the program.  You can turn this toolbar on and off by clicking Configuration, Show Toolbar.

These Icons are in color and available for use.


  Inventory Manger – brings up the Inventory Manager Screen.


  Counts – Brings up the Counts –Select Location Screen.


  Shopping Cart – brings up the Shopping Cart


  Recipe Manager – brings up the Recipe Manager Screen


  Sales Mix – brings up the Sales Mix Screen


  Printer – sends the information on the page to a printer.


  Login – You will see a prompt asking you to close all of the windows, then another user can log on or you can change units.  You can also use this to switch units.

  Calculator – when you click this, an onscreen calculator will appear.


  Help – click on this, and it will bring up the tutorial and help screens.

Normally, the following fields are grey unless you are in a transaction. 


  Suspend Transaction – suspends the current transaction.  This shortcut will only be available while you are working with a transaction such as receipts, or sales mix.


  Save Transaction – saves the current transaction. 


 Cancel Transaction – cancel the current transaction.


 Fill in Transaction Records – fills in the detail records with past information, or other details related to this area.  You can save time with this feature.  CostGuard will fill in different information, depending on the transaction. 


 Clear Transaction Records – clears out the detail lines on the current transaction. 


 Zero Transaction Values – sets the values in the detail records for a transaction to “0.”  This feature is handy for updating pricing without having to receive data.  Further details on this command are in the tutorials.


 Blank Transaction Values – blanks out values in the number fields of the detail records for a transaction.  This is different from Zero Transaction Values as nothing is in the field, and you can now enter in other information.  What becomes blank vary from transaction to transaction. 


 Set Filter – displays a filter selection appropriate for the current window.  Filters allow you to sort the data, or search for certain conditions.  For example, if you are in Recipe Manager then CostGuard will display the Recipe Filter.  If you are in Inventory Manager, then it will display the Inventory Filter.


 Clear Filter & Show All – clears any filter for the active window and displays all available items.
