This section provides the new features and enhancements introduced in this release.
Consolidate Items for Receipt Printer
A new setting is added to the custom receipt configuration called Order By. This setting will support the value as Item or Category. If the value is set to Item, all the items are rearranged into ascending alphabetical order. If the value is set to the category, all the items are rearranged into a group according to categories in ascending order. This setting is followed only in case if the items are not rearranged on the order pad before printing.
This setting is used to print the receipt in a sorted manner.
Key Item Summary to the Line Item on KDS
KDS now has the ability to display a summary (cell or bar) of key ingredients within a KDS cell or in another visual location. The key item summary feature allows viewing a summary of key ingredients of an item on KDS devices.
Accept Priority Order on KDS
KDS now has the ability to accept priority or rush orders in the kitchen. Priority Order is now displayed first based on the flag set to orders that are sent to KDS. If there are two priority orders sent to KDS, the latest priority order displays after the previous priority order.
A long press on the PAY button on the POS will pop up a message asking the staff to confirm the priority firing. If the staff gives their confirmation, the particular order will blink on the KDS in a different color as a priority until the order is accepted by the kitchen chef.
Combine Split Orders in Orders Chit on KDS
The KDS now prints only the menu items as part of an order for which it is configured to work . Orders are split to correct KDS devices as per the categories configurations at HQ. Order is split to both KDS and order chit is printed from both KDS, when KDS-1 is configured with category-A and KDS-2 is configured with Category-B and order is placed with both Category items in a single check.
