A Kitchen in Clock POS refers to the place Orders will be sent to and where specific meals are being prepared (kitchen station). Furthermore, Printers in Clock POS are directly linked to Kitchens. So when an Order is placed, all Menu Items in that Order will be sent to their corresponding Kitchen and printed on the Kitchen Printers (if any).
To create a Kitchen in Clock POS, you should go to Management -> Kitchens.
- Click the "New" button to open a new screen where you can input the "Name" of the Kitchen, e.g. Bar. Additionally, if you have any Printers connected to Clock POS, they will be shown as checkboxes next to the "Printers" label. Select the printer that is corresponding to this 'Kitchen'.
- Clicking the "Create" button will create your Kitchen and return you to the previous screen. Now you can see all your Kitchens and the Printers connected to them (if any).
- Menu items should have a Kitchen selected. This way, when an order is sent, the printer for the corresponding kitchen will print the order for the menu items prepared there.
- Each kitchen (station) can have the Kitchen monitor just for its station and see the orders/menu items only referring to it.
