Noticed today that after installing this update my servers can no long print their own read from a button I put on my tables entity screen as they don’t have management permissions. It works if I’m logged in as Administrator so I tried checking every box under the “server” role and still didnt work so I clicked the “Admin box” under the General Settings and it worked. I don’t want to have to give them Admin permissions but I’m stumped on what to next!

They don’t need admin they need reports permission.

They’ve always had it. I checked every box under Permissions and it still prints with an Asterisk where it should have the servers name.

If it’s putting an astriks that means they are not logged in. Do you have some autologout automation ?

Apologies for the picture but I’m not there anymore. Shouldn’t it print read before it logs out though?


Check what it shows fir user name in bottom right. Does it show an asterisk there?

No, @Jesse is right. If I remove the Logout User action everything is fine. I just don’t understand what changed and wht the print read action doesn’t fire first. …and whats with the Async check box?

It probably doesn’t have time to finish before logout.

@emre thanks for the fix!

What you’ll need to do is:

  1. remove the logout action from that rule
  2. Add an auto command action with delay action instead
  3. In the auto command action put “Logout With Delay” as the auto command and enter a delay of 1 (for 1 second)
  4. Create a new auto command executed rule with auto command name equals “Logout With Delay”
  5. Add your logout action to the rule just created

This happens sometimes with auto logout as the system doesn’t have time to process other things whilst logging out so we need to delay the logout slightly

By doing the above it will delay the system logging out by 1 second, giving the system time to process other background functions and print your reads before logging out

If it still doesn’t work change the delay from 1 to 2 seconds and try it again


Execute print job starts working after all rules executes. Enable “High Priority” setting to make it work at the moment it called.


You can also capture the “last user” to a ticket tag each time ticket is opened / created, then use the ticket tag in your receipt instead of user. This is the way we get around it. I’m surprised you only experience this * now, we have experienced it for as long as I can remember when using auto logout.


whats up with the new async check boxes for actions in rules? I am already seeing it help me with development for implementing order tag note setup but not fully understanding how it works. Can someone explain it please?

EDIT: Checked all menu products have a “Name”. Only thing odd is I noticed some categories, “Sort Order” is set to 0 on all products, not sure how that happened since I haven’t touched the sort order.

EDIT: I’ve went through and selected then saved “Sort Category Products” on all those categories with 0 sort order so they all had “correct” values in place. Tried to clone menu again, same error and crash.

UPDATE: Ok, this is not only my setup - I get the same error and crash on a fresh sample database if I try to clone the Menu. I can reproduce it on 2 different systems.


On 5.2.14 “if no header defined” changing Product name will change Menu button caption automatically. I think that issue relates with that feature. That works fine for me as I’ve recently changed “Caption Wrapping” feature so I couldn’t reproduce it but it will work fine on next update.


I created a new topic for 5.1.15 Beta Release and uploaded a fresh build. Thanks.
