Add Print Button to print selected Tickets

@emre

Is there a way to add a Print button between Merge Tickets and Close. I am not sure if it is possible with current setup.

Usage:

After splitting a large Ticket, we can use Print button to print Tickets that are selected above. This will speed up printing multiple small tickets.

Best Regards,

Interesting idea. We don’t have access to that screen to place our own commands.

I was wrong. This is how to do it…

This method should work too, in a similar fashion…

To Print multiple Tickets, you could try to use a Ticket Lister Widget and an Automation Command to fire the Execute Print Job Action.

We do have access to put buttons there, on your button mapping select “Ticket List” on the visibility option

Button wrapping doesnt work here thought so using /r doesnt wrap the text, it just displays /r on the button like normal text

This is my mapping for open drawer button, ive added mapping for “Ticket List”

And it appears here

Nice @RickH… wasn’t aware of that!

I assume that we can fire actions against all selected Tickets there too…

Ive not tried it, ill map my abort transaction button later and see if i can select multiple orders and abort them all in one go :slight_smile:

I am learning something every day about SambaPOS and that’s the reason I asked if it is possible with current setup. It seems SambaPOS can do almost anything as long as you know what you are doing. :smile: LOL.

@RickH, can you try a Print button to see if it will print selected tickets.

Thank you,

Need to find a way to load Ticket IDs …

just tried my cancel transaction button and that doesnt work either, the ticket has to actually be open on screen for it to cancel, you cant select one order or multiple orders

@QMcKay With your print bill can you select one order and then press the button, or does that not work either?

Doesn’t work either.

It is probably a fairly simple setup - just missing something.

I think we need to use Load Ticket Action, then Print, then cycle to next Ticket (Loop Values Action?). I’m almost certain there is a way to do this without too much trouble; but I need to do some research.

Look here …

@emre,

Is there a way to implement a Print button as per above request? I think, it will enhance printing when we split tickets.

Best Regards,

Read the linked threads. Look at this, the Message is showing Ticket Ids, comma-separated. And they do print.

Here is the setup - minimal, easy, seems to work well…

Automation Command

Action - Execute Print Job

Action - Loop Values

Rule - Automation Command Executed - fire Loop Value Action

Rule - Value Looped - fire Execute Print Job Action

thank you @QMcKay. It worked flawlessly. Is there any reason we should be setting map values for Rules: PM Load Looper or PM Print Tickets?

All rules need mapping with no mapping rules will not work. We often do not mention mapping for rules because well its been said so many times it should be common knowledge.

You will be happy to know when v5 comes out rules will include default mapping.

Makes sense, but for people new to SambaPOS (i.e. me) it can be confusing. I did map those rules from default, but wanted to clarify. Thanks.

Yes it can be confusing we agree that’s why we pushed to get default mapping when creating rules in v5.

I’ve followed this and it works great… Only thing is I tried to get it to lock the tickets and change the states… But its not working and I know its because samba doesn’t know what ticket to do it to… Just not exactly sure how to tell it… Any pointers?
