Release Notes 12/2020

Preprinted Gift cards

Preprinted gift card could be: Plastic card with magnetic stripe, QR-code, Barcode or even NFC-chip holding the ID of cards. To create preprinted gift cards for card manufacturer please create gift card template that is sellable from POS and use new feature "Pre-create" on BackOffice. Note that old features for Create and Import have been also split to different actions.

There are only three fields required: the first is Template, the second is how many gift cards are to be manufactured and then you can add free reference for the created patch on field Customer.

After creation system automatically downloads excel that can be send for manufacturer. Please note that ID needs to be exactly on that format on printed media. No LUHN calculations are yet supported.

To finally charge new gift card make sure template prefix is created on BackOffice as Input Mask rule:

Then read on POS (in sales mode) the Preprinted gift card and charge action shall be triggered automatically and user can choose between template rules the amount to load on gift card. And there is no option to choose delivery type. New status can be found on BackOffice.

Maximum discount percentage on category

This new feature is needed to prevent any discounts from certain categories like Alcohol products. It can also be used to control that for example more than 50 % discount is never applied to certain products on POS.

This will not prevent changing the price of a product on POS as that action is not considered as discount.

Last modified timestamp and user on all data

This is added on all data cards on BackOffice to have audit log, who has changed the document.

Improvements on Stock Handling

Purchase price on SKU page is given in Display Unit. For example, a bottle. Then basic unit price is calculated automatically from it.

In Purchase Order we show Display Unit purchase price.

Fixed multiple places to use Display Unit for SKU.

Creating Stock Out (Loss/Waste) on POS

This new action on POS can be used to add loss/waste transactions on Stock Products and Ingredients and for Recipes.
To activate this new action, user needs to create new POS UI layout for adding loss/waste. Easiest way to create such layout is to copy your current selling layout and do modifications there as needed for example removing unnecessary actions and products.

Stock mode can be activated from Menu on POS. After activating the mode user can perform only few actions: Find Stock Products (that do have SKU), Complete and possibility to go back on Sales Mode.
To add waste user can do it in 3 different ways:

  • Reading barcode of SKU product

  • Using Find Stock Products – action

  • Using POS Layout buttons.


While adding loss to SKU user can choose different Measurement unit for transaction:

After Stock Transaction is completed on POS, we return to Sales Mode. POS Loss can be found and checked on BackOffice. Recipe is split into ingredients properly. Also, customizations are considered on recipe.

Please note that product / ingredient should have SKU and some stock quantity, before it can be deducted from the stock:

Waste percentage and other improvements on recipes

Waste can be added to ingredients in recipe. This shall change how ingredient is calculated back to stock. Used calculation in upper example is that on recipe we have product 20g but waste is 50% so stock is deducted with 20g/(1 – 0,5) = 40g

Cooking instruction on Recipes

You can add new Cooking Instruction to recipes which can be later printout or checked on Cook application.

Note: Cook Application need to be reinstalled to apply new update on SDK.

Instructions are not printed on Kitchen tablet by default, but they can be viewed from Overview tab. If on settings "Print cooking instructions" is selected, then on each kitchen printout also cooking instructions are printed. This is useful when you have new cook learning recipes.

Submenu action on POS

There is new action type that can be used to open "submenu" quickly from POS action grid.

To create a submenu, select "Action" as a button type in POS layout configuration tool. Then select the action, which would be "Open tab" in this case. Then choose the tab, which you want the button to point to. Save the layout.

By clicking the button on POS UI you can now move to the tab the button points to.

New type on Send to Kitchen: Choose

With this new option, kitchen can prepare recipes beforehand and place them on shelf. When selling product POS clerk can choose "Shelf" and product is not send to kitchen but rather sold directly from shelf.
