Hmm… I’m interested. But shouldn’t it be 3xPepsi?

rice looks like a siding. how can we differ these…

or we’ll have

3 pepsi
2 chips
2 mild
1 rice
1 medium

They are all listed like tags in a combo type setup.

  • spice level presumeably no value
  • side of rice/chips
  • drink choice

Guess rice and chips would be in same tag type/group so perhaps a list tag group count expression although that would then be a fixed format unless there was a new section type.

Both are possible. Expressions generally returns a single summary value. So having a new section might be a better idea. But implementing an expression / tag type might be useful to summarize items more easily. I’ll think about that.

Maybe more like a report expression where you set fields order if it was a one liner.
Section like other obviously allows full flexability of other sections. Specifying tag types after header like states on orders in default template for voids on kitchen print and gift etc.


edit: however this is not really an expression. how should we name this? Maybe just {ORDER TAG DETAILS:x} will be better. I’ll check if that name used somewhere else or not.

I’m testing it on @QMcKay’s sample. I think we invented something new :slight_smile:

Yes it would be lol applogies

They are all sidings, i was trying to reaserch weather a order tag could actually select a product from another category of products, so example chips order tag would select the chips product so when printing i could just print all order products without order tags,

This would help greating in bump screens, becuase in a takeaway chain the screen for the fryer section would have all the chips on one tab on his screen. (but this would be a diffrent topic)

My laptop charge is dying, I’ll add few expressions to filter by tag group name easier. It will be ready for next update.


I tested it on ticket template but you can implement it for kitchen order template too.

Fantastic great stuff thanks :slight_smile:

Nice one :wink: sure that will be used allot. Probably allot of people that might not have asked or known they wanted but see it and think actually that’s handy.

I completed required expressions however it missed the 5.2.12 release. It will be available on 5.2.13 beta.

By using OTNC (Order Tag Name Contains) expression you can supply a comma delimited list of order tag names to filter order tags.


Been testing this all good and well except when you use product quantity so 2x burger meal and you have chips. the order tag would only show 1 on the recipt, unless you put each item in individually it should be 15 chips 15 7up

Other than that actually works really well

Show your printer template?
