The table layout has a huge amount of information about the status of not only the table's booking but also the status of their dining and the progress of their meals. Using these effectively will save time and present clear communication between floor and kitchen staff.
The table layout will present your tables as square or rectangular boxes with the name or number in the middle of the box.
The tables colour will reflect its status at all times.
Green – Table is open and available
Yellow – Table is selected. Tap once to select the table.
Red – Table is being used. The table has order attached to it that has not been paid yet.
Light Blue – Table has cover assigned to it already but has no order yet. This is a good way of telling staff that a table is booked or reserved.
Dark Blue – Table is merged to another table. The only way a table can be un-merged is to pay the table off completely.
Orange – Table has bill printed already. The bill can be printed at any time by pressing 'Pre-Print' located in the function grid.
Grey – Table is locked. Another user is accessing the table.
Purple - Table is being held. To remove the hold, open the table and hit the 'holding...' button in the terminal status bar.
Meal Status is represented by way of a small bubble at the top of each table. These can be configured in Back Office. The function of these status is to communicate to Front Office Staff as to the progress of a diners meal.
It's important to remember that these are NOT related to course grouping even though these status may have the same names.
To change the meal status of a table, select the table by tapping it once and then tapping on the pre-set meal status at the bottom of the table layout.
Printing Meal Status
Impos has the ability to print to a selected printer a message once the meal status has been engaged.
