Open function menu in cash register 

Once you are in the Sales section, the cash register will be displayed on the right side of the screen. The cash register displays the sales items that are in the basket and can be checked out.

The function menu can vary in the characteristics of the functions. This depends on whether there are already sales items in the basket or whether, for example, a collective invoice has been created, etc.

  1. Swipe from right to left with your finger (or with the mouse button pressed).
    ⮕ The function menu opens.Bildschirmfoto_2022-08-12_um_15.05.54.pngBildschirmfoto_2022-08-12_um_13.25.55.png
  2. Tap one of the icons if you want to open a new order, view the invoice history, view a partial or collective invoice and print or cancel the order. You can learn more about the payment process here.
  3. Tap outside the area to hide the function menu again.

You can also open the function menu on individual sales items in the cash register.

  2. Tap one of the icons if you want to, for example, note special requests for the order, assign the order to a staff member, set the sales type for the item, or delete / cancel an item directly.Bildschirmfoto_2022-08-12_um_13.39.07.png
