ORDER TYPES IN LOGIN SCREEN

The view of the Login screen has been changed totally.
  • Now you can login to different modes such as Home Delivery, Take Out, Dine In, Retails etc.
  • By pressing the designated button you can directly login and be able to see categories loaded with items not seeing the other order types any more.
Most important part here is you can give different price for different order types from the back office.
Previously you had to create an item with a different name although that item already exists in the menu item to give different price for different Order Type.
However, You can still use the Switchboard option as a managerial perspective.

PRICE & TAX BY ORDER TYPE

Now its much easier, just select the menu item and edit for different pricing using the ‘Price by Order Type’ tab.
Suppose a restaurant accepts different Order Types where
  • Home Delivery has to given higher price than Take Out options.
  • Same way Dine In has to be given a price in between.
Notice that besides
  • Giving different price for different order types you can also
  • Choose to just change the tax% which eventually changes the item price.
For example, although take Out and Drive Thru price for Cheese Burger are same
You will be charging different price from your customer as you have set up different tax%.

This color pattern will help the cooks to see which order needs to be cooked first and which to be followed.
