I seem to remember there was discussion that an off-line mode for point of sale disappeared in V7. Can anyone confirm this is the case. If so, any thoughts on how to handle retail when openerp back-end is not available (other than having a failover for network outage)

POS on V7 still handles Off-Line mode.

Thierry, Thanks for clarifying that. Have you used POS in off-line mode? Is there anything evident to the user, and different aspects I need to be aware of?

I do not use POS in off-line anymore since I have drastically customized it

See here : http://thierry-godin.developpez.com/openerp/openerp-module-pos-enhanced-fr/

About the off-line mode : Be aware that POS orders are only sent to OpenERP when you are on-line. During off-line period, you'll see the led (top-right) turning to red, with the number of orders that are waiting for connection. As the connection is alive, orders are sent to OpenERP and led turns green.
