The Home window is where you input and manage information related to your business. There are five different sets of tools on this window.

1. Alerts

On the top, is the set of Alerts. They communicate system status information. You may click on the alert to get more information, or to initiate a relevant action.

2. Reminders

On the bottom is a list of Reminders. These are analogous to yellow sticky-notes. They allow you to make a comment, specify a date due and a date finished. By default, they are visible to your employee account, but not to other employees in your business. However, it is possible to create a reminder and share it with every employee.

3. Barcode Search

Just under the tool ribbon is the Barcode Search tool. If you have a barcode scanner, this is a good starting point for looking up many things.
