Starting Swim

Swim Setup

Swim Global Login

 When first opening Swim you will be asked for your email and password. This is your registration email and password and needs to be entered once on each of the computers or devices that you are using Swim on. After your global login is entered, it will then go to the standard user login (see below)

Swim Users

 When the user access is turned on, each individual user has their own password. When they click an option on the main menu, they will be prompted to type in their user password. Simply type in the user password to access the rest of Swim. 

Important Note 

The default administration user password is 'admin' in all lower case. All passwords are also case sensitive, so just be aware when setting up passwords for new users. You can edit the default admin user in 'manage users' under the administration group and either change the password or make it inactive.

End of Day

When you go live and start using Swim for sales, it is extremely important that at the end of each day you perform the post end of day process. If you do not perform this task, there will be no data on the sales reports. To perform the end of day you go to sales menu, post end of day.
