Instructions

1. Adding/Removing New PLU’s on the Scale

Adding: no special attention is required.

Removing: Just as long as a user has not read back from a scale which has been setup in
more than one department and merged the batch into E-Plum's master no special attention
is required. If that has occurred item data from an incorrect department will have been
saved to the master and if removed from the correct department, it will be sent back to the
scale if a reload is initiated from E-Plum. To remove an item from an incorrect department:
Clear the store data and initiate a master export from PLUM Host.

2. Adding/Removing New Department(s) on the scale. For Example – the Scale is


loaded with Hot Foods PLU’s and I want to load the Meat Department PLU’s on it
