Note  This article is intended for Minfos Pilot stores only. It contains either new or updated functionality that is not generally available at this time. Please look out for these new features in an upcoming Minfos software release.

Head Offices can set a default Master Store for all accounts created at Head Office. This can be useful if Head Offices routinely create Centralised Customer Accounts for a particular store. Head Offices can also set this field manually, either to change it from the default Master Store, or if they have chosen not to set a default.

Note Head Office users can create Centralised Customer Accounts, but must set a store as the Master Store. Head Offices cannot be Master Stores.
