Adding new kitchen station
In order to enter a new station, go to the "Kitchen" section and press the "Add new kitchen station" button.
Name* - enter the name of your kitchen.
Print a docket per dish - if you activate this option, when an order is in the kitchen, on the receipt will be printed only one dish.
For example, if one kitchen received an order for 5 dishes, then each dish will be printed on a separate receipt.
If you do not enable this option, then the dishes that come to the kitchen, provided they are connected to one kitchen, will be printed on one receipt.
For example, if the kitchen received an order for 5 dishes, they will be printed on one receipt, and not on five separate ones.
Product checklist - downloaded data shows the number of products (and modifiers in the product) that are currently in the kitchen, they can be loaded in one file and sent to print.
