Have your customers started piling in, wreaking havoc in your daily flow of operations? StoreHub has the solution for you! Read on for our Additional Checkout Options - a feature added to the F&B/Multiple Kitchen Printers to facilitate the flow of your orders from the minute an order has been made, to the kitchen, back to the customers.
In the BackOffice > Settings > Account, scroll down to the F&B section.
There are two options available, as shown in the screenshot below.
Option 1 - Assign table number at checkout
Option 2 - Auto-generate queue number
Let’s talk about the first option. 'Assign table number at checkout' is literally that. When selecting items on the iPad Register, the POS will then prompt you to enter a table number which will be printed on the order ticket.
This is where the table number will show up.
The second option comes into play to ease the flow of operations, especially at quick-serve cafes and retail stores. Customers make their purchase, and a queue number will be printed on the receipt. The food or coffee station will receive their order with the queue printed on the order ticket as well. No more confusing orders and unhappy customers!
Tip 1. Queue numbers are based on the Register's ID. For example, if your Register ID starts with the number 2, the queue numbers would be from 200 to 299.
Queue numbers cannot be reset manually and are reset after the 99th queue number. If you would like to reset the queue numbers manually, you would need to deactivate and reactivate the register for now.
