Default checkbox on Size and Color grid in Candela

Jun 15, 2017 | Ask Our Techie | 0 comments

Dear Techie,

I have been using Candela point of sale for quite a while now- in fact last month completed my five years as Candela Point of Sale user. There is one thing that I haven’t understood. It’s minor and it’s not an impediment either. But it bothers me because I don’t know what purpose it serves.

When I am defining size and color inventory a size a color grid appears on the product definition screen. Along with the defined colors and sizes, the grid also shows (999) Default checkbox. What purpose does this checkbox serve?

Happy fifth Candela-user Anniversary.

This innocent looking checkbox serves an important purpose. If you are defining your inventory (products) under size and color line item but you don’t want to define sizes or colors for a particular product, mark the check-box ‘Default Color and Default Size for it.’ It is important because the system will not let you save a product that’s being defined under a size and color line item unless you select sizes and colors for it.

If you want to define colors for some product but not the sizes, you can select the check box ‘Default Size’ for such products. While preparing GRN matrix for such products the quantity of the product will be entered in the Default size or 999 column. All this is part of retail management! Hope this clears the confusion. Stay Happy.


Yours in retail,

Candela Techie
