Hi there, I have SambaPos up and running since March and it works great!!
I would like to change 1 thing on my setup but I cannot figure out how to do it exactly.
We run a small family restaurant and I would like to make it easier for the kitchen to understand the kitchen dockets. So I need to find a way for the kitchen printer to automatically sort the order into “Entrée”, “Mains” and “Desserts”.
However, for the purpose of this example let us assume that there are only 3 “Menu Categories” “Entrée”, “Mains” and “Desserts”. Let’s say “Meze” is an “Entrée” item but the customer wants it served with their main course. Because I do not want to clutter up the small screen by duplicating additional menu items and adding them to different “Menu Categories” I have added under “Portion Prices”: “Normal”, “Mains” and “Desserts”. So if a customer orders a dish but wants it served anything other than “Normal” I click on the item again and choose a different “Portion”. In this case “Mains”. The kitchen printer will promptly print out: “Meze.Mains”. What I would like to do now is get SambaPos to automatically group the “Meze.Mains” with the other main course items. How do I do this? Or do I have to change the way the menu is setup? Simply put I want “Meze” to be by default sorted into “Entree” section of the kitchen docket and only if the customer requests it, it to be placed under “Mains”.
