Before you begin

 

Users will need Admin level permissions for this function to work

Rearrange products or categories & add color

 

1. From your Kounta Point of Sale, select the menu icon on the left-hand side

Note - If you are going to rearrange products, you would first need to open the category where they are

 

2. Select Preferences

1. From the Add-ons Page in Kounta Back Office, find Dark Mode.
