Order sections

Order sections lets you organise your orders across different groups and sections. A restaurant might want to group order sections per floor, so that each order section group represents a floor and each order section represents a table. An order section can hold an unlimited number of orders.

Order section group

Create new a order section group by pressing "+ New order section group"

  • Name the order section group depending on how it's going to be used. The name will appear as a quick link on the main screen and as a grouping option for an order.
  • Columns and row. Define a grid that will hold the number of order sections you want to show. For example a 4 x 4 grid will fit up to 16 order sections.
tip

Consider grouping your order sections in smaller order section groups to make sure the amount of information on each screen doesn't get too overwhelming. This is especially important on smaller devices like mobile phones.
