Using the dashboard
After launching Bar Cop, you will always land at the dashboard first. From the dashboard, you can manage software updates, get quick insights to your current inventory data, and quickly access every section of Bar Cop. On the left side, you will see the main program menu.
The top left Bar Cop logo can be clicked from any location in the program to return to the dashboard.
Directly to the right of the blue logo there is a question mark icon. This icon is located on every page of the program and can clicked to take you to the online help doc for that section. You must be connected to internet to use this feature. *Note: If you click the help doc icon and your web browser does not open, you need to set your web browser of choice as the default browser in Windows settings.At the top of the main menu are the quick click feature icons. These include: Help doc menu, support contact, print, save, resize screen, copy, and paste.
