How to group items on Loyverse KDS

Recommended Posts

for restaurant business we have starters  ,  main courss desserts etc. 

when ordering a table loyverse kitchen display shows all orders as touched in . 

often we take order from one customer ( starter, main course etc). and the next customer. 

loyverse shows these order on KDS   ass   touched in .  so the kitchen display shows   starter, main course person 1 ,  starter , main course , person 2 , etc. 

it would be great if items could be grouped so an item automaticly shows as starter, and another item shows as main course on kitchen display. 

will it be able to add this feature.??

Hi @oasis, Would you be able to get another couple of tablets? I'm assuming you have just the one KDS but was thinking you could have a starter, mains and dessert KDS device (using the categories in the printer setup) and use the Warning times in the settings to stagger the courses (ie cook when it goes to warning)? So starters go to Warning after 10mins, Mains after 35mins and Desserts after 85mins (times to suit your business). Could cause an issue if someone orders dessert as they finish their main but nothing that couldn't be worked round?

Hello, just discovered loyverse and I'm really happy with it. But for the moment I can't use it for this reason. But I will save it for the future.

This function it is necessary for restaurants.

I saw how it works in other software and they have always an option after every items is selected.

For example some people would like to have a main as a starter, so you would press chicken and then it will give you the option to choose it as starter or main. So when it arrives to the kitchen the order will be separated in starters | mains | drinks | .. . . . . . .  Also this gives you the chance of adding more starters or mains even if lets say you have finished your order but someone said ohh sorry I want also that carpaccio for starter... It will get in the starters section.

 

If you can add something similar will be very useful for anyone looking for a restaurant POS. Maybe you can put an option to be activated in the back office just for the restaurants, because for other type of business is not that useful but for restaurants it's a must.

Hope it helps,

Kind regards

Hi again,

I was looking at the modifiers and if you activate them I saw you can choose a modifier after item selected...

It would be kind of adding there a new option "order of display" and then select for example first course and then the order will be ordered by your "order of display". Creating categories for order of display in the back office and assigning the order there.

I mean you can write comments there like (first course) but it won't group and order it and is a very slow method, hehe.

Just leaving ideas for this impressive software.

Kind regards and have a good day
