NEW FEATURE - Improvements to Menu Switching
I think we forgot to add this to the release notes with all the new features
Now you can limit the number of Menus you need to physically create and instead use the GROUP TAG column in the Edit Product Properties settings of your menu. I use a lot of different menus and could potentially with some work reduce my menus to just 1 using this feature
One reason Emre implemented this was so that you could set certain products or custom product buttons that act as auto command to only show for the specific USER ROLE logged in.
Ill quickly show you screen shots of how ive used this menu switching to show different buttons depending on who is logged in, along with a manager menu option that temporarily overrides those options to display all manager functions with the need to log out and log in as a manager/admin to make any changes then log back on as the cashier to continue
The bottom half of the screen are all auto commands that fire various rules, you can see that when a cashier is logged in they only see a few buttons
You will see they have many more options appear
Temporary enable Manager functions when logged in as a Cashier User Role
For Example, ive added an item and need to change the price but the cashier user role does not have access to the price override button
So they ask a manager who can authorise a price change, theres no need to log out as a cashier and log back in as a manager, just press the Manager Menu button to switch the menu to a manager menu to show the manager user roles additional buttons, this is Admin PIN protected
So you can now see the manager menu options and if you look in the botton right you can see the cashier user role still logged in
We can now perform a price override and when complete the menu automatically switches back to only display the current logged in user roles options, in this case the cashier
Price override to £5 and menu switches back
I use this heavily for custom product buttons set as auto commands but you could use this to only show specific menu items/products depending on the user logged in.
You could also use this setup to have just 1 menu with ALL your products in, then use the GROUP TAG column to set the specific menu you want to associate that product to, comma separated for multiple menu options, then use the updated change menu action to call the menu based on this group tag.
Below are screen shots of the setting used to create the buttons to filter based on USER ROLE
Updated Change Screen Menu Action with GROUP FILTER
Set the Group Filter Options in Products>Menu List>Select Your Menu>Edit Product Properties
On login the POS navigates straight to ticket so displays the menu options available to the USER ROLE logged in
To display the Manager/Admin options as defined in the GROUP FILTER the action would become
So only buttons/products with Manager in the group filter for that product will be shown
