You can have as many templates as you like in your account, but only a certain number of active/published templates to use within Epos Now depending on your subscription plan.
- My Templates
Shows a list of all the templates in your account.
- Template Title
The name of your template. This is the name that the template is referred to as in Epos Now, so choose the name carefully so that it is easily identified. Clicking on the title will open this template for editing.
- Template Status
This shows whether the template is in draft of published status

- Duplicate Template
You can create a duplicate of an existing template by clicking this icon.

- Default Action Button Setting
When the action button is pressed on the till, this setting defines what happens. There are three options:
a. Show order list
This will show a list of the 5 most recent orders on the till
b. Select template with last order
Automatically select the last order on this till and allow the user to select one of the active templates to print. This is useful when you have multiple active templates.
