Control Panel

Each time you launch Bar Cop, you land here at the control panel.

Bar Cop Control Panel

From the control panel you can quickly access each section of Bar Cop. On the left hand side you can customize Bar Cop, by clicking "Program Settings" or click support if you need help.

Bar Cop Control Panel 2

This is where you will enter in the dates for the current inventory period file you are working on. We recommend saving each inventory period file name as the inventory period dates (see saving inventory files). You can also keep track of how many days you have remaining in your 30 day trial or current subscription plan. Before your plan expires, click the "Renew Your Subscription" button to continue using Bar Cop. If your plan expires and you lose access to Bar Cop, you can go here to renew.

Bar Cop Control Panel 3

When you enter your inventory start and end dates for the current inventory file, those dates will show up in the top left corner of the program next to the Bar Cop icon and undo arrow. If you are working in a section of the software, you can click the Bar Cop icon to quickly jump back to the control panel. You can click the blue arrow next to the Bar Cop icon to undo the very last data entry action.

IMPORTANT - The undo function will only undo the last data entered into Bar Cop, it does not undo core functions that take place when clicking a function button: added rows, deleted rows, creating a new inventory, cleared data, etc.

If you are scrolling down while working in a section of the program with a large product list, just click "Top" to quickly go back up. To learn how to use the magnification, save, and print functions, check out these help docs.

Things to know:

1) When the days left is "0" on your subscription expiration countdown, you will lose access to Bar Cop at the end of that day. To continue using Bar Cop, you must get or renew a subscription period to receive a new activation key.
