PLU: Advanced Tab

This page will detail the advanced tab on PLUs settings.

This tab has many of the PLU settings. It has a variety of different functions from making server notes visible on customer receipts, to deciding sort order, or making it a refund button. This tab can be thought of as a miscellaneous settings tab, if it doesn’t have an obvious connection to one of the other tabs chances are you will find the setting here.
