Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/pos Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot


In Point Of Sale module, the front-end works offline, so all datas are loaded at the beginning. At the end of the session, if user doesn't close the window, it will be possible to create new PoS order on a closed session, generating errors.


This module prevent the possility to create a PoS order via the front end PoS UI, when session is closed.

The session state is checked every minute by default. If the state of the session is not opened, a blocking pop up is displayed, and user has to open a new session.


Table of contents


  • Go to Point of Sale / Configuration / Point of Sales
  • Open a PoS Config and set a frequency for the check
  • Alternatively, if you let the value to 0, a lazy check will be done when trying to save the order. This setting can be interesting, if you have a poor connexion, because the check done regularly could generate a bad UX experience in that case.
