With table management, cashiers and waiting staff can save orders onto tables. If you have a kitchen printer, the table name is printed onto the kitchen ticket. This is especially useful for restaurants and cafés. This is a feature that is not included per standard. Here is how you configure the table management:
Start by logging into Backoffice. Choose Configuration -> Table Management.
The screen should be as below. If it does not, make sure you have at least one location configured.
We have two buttons to the right to use. Create Table and Create Series of Tables.
Create Table lets you enter the name of a table and save it right away. The VIP Table, as an example.
Create Series of Tables is useful if you want to create tables in a series, e.g. Table 1 to Table 20. Enter a prefix and how many tables you need and these are created for you.
Now that we have tables ready let's enter Table Layouts.
Click Create Table Layout to the right and give it a name, e.g. Restaurant, or Patio.
We have an empty map in front of us and can start adding tables to it. Choose the size you want for your tables and click Insert Table.
You can manually check the tables or click Select All. Finish with Insert.
The tables have been inserted into the map and can be moved around at will. You can adjust the size of the tables by clicking and dragging the bottom right corner.
You can even change the shape of the table by clicking it.
When you are happy with the look of your map, click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
Log out and in to the cash register and it will download these new settings. The cash register can reach the table map by pressing Save or Retrieve in the top of the tab.
