Preferences enable you to configure the Prism interface and workflow to best suit the needs of your business. You can configure preferences so that they are applied at the Global, Subsidiary, Store, or Workstation level. Preferences are organized into areas and sub areas. Select a node on the left-side menu to display the available preferences for that area.
Preferences are grouped into Global and Node. Global preferences apply to all subsidiaries in the enterprise. Node preferences can be applied to a specific node (level). For example, by drilling down to a specific subsidiary in the Node Selection area and then configuring preferences, the settings will apply only to that subsidiary. When configuring preferences at the node level, care must be taken to set the preferences for the correct level so as not to overwrite settings for other locations.
