Now the guest is seated at the table, you can hand over the menu and start the order taking starting by clicking the table (in overview or in list).
Read here the consecutive steps how to take the dining order:
- Step 1: Select the first guest to register his/her order. Therefore click the user name to start adding the desired dining items for this guest or use the [ + Item] link at the right. The dining item detail screen opens. Staff can start taking orders in the seating flow (after action button ‘seat’) or can add orders at all times for people that are already seated (action button ‘order’).
- Step 2: From the dining item detail screen, you can select the dining items from today’s menu (all daily specials in one overview) or from 'à la carte' for every course separately. All items are shown per course.
- Step 3: Take the order for each guest at the table. Click the ‘next’ button (in the bottom) with guest name to quickly navigate to the next person seated at this table without having to return to the order detail overview. The app will guide you step by step to take all orders for all guests seated at a table together.
The dining items are listed per course ( Appetizers, Main courses, Sides, Desserts). Just tick the box next to the chosen dining item. Per guest, you'll get an overview of the dining items selected.
End this process with [Send order] , so the table color changes (orange) and the ticket is sent to the kitchen for food preparation.
