Shopify POS app tiles: how to duplicate layout for new Locations?

157 1 145

Is it possible to duplicate a Shopify POS tile configuration for use in other Locations? 


I just realized that the best way to set up the POS app for temporary events is to create a new "Location" for each event, and then activate/deactivate as needed. 


However, after setting up the new Locations, I discovered that you need to configure the POS tiles for each location. I can't seem to find a way to either sync them, or to duplicate one layout to the other Locations. 


I have to do like 20 of these, so would prefer not to have to do each one manually.

Hi there, @George_C! Thank you for taking the time to reach out to the Shopify Community Forums with your question around POS tile layouts!


I took the time to connect with our Retail Team about this functionality. They've let me know that, at this time, it's not possible to copy a tile layout from one location, and apply it to another. With that being said, they thought this was a really fantastic idea, and have opted to pass it along to our developers for their consideration! I can't promise what the outcome may be from this passing along of feedback, but you can trust that the appropriate folks here at Shopify are aware of your request!

OK thank you. Yes this would be a really helpful thing for sellers who do multiple pop-up events.

Perhaps even a "tile template" that can be saved and applied, or even better layouts that can be saved and then each location can choose which saved layout to use. That way if something changes, it doesn't have to be edited for every location.

Just update the saved tile layout, and each location that uses it will get the updated layout.

I would like to see this feature as well - I have 3 locations.
