About Kitchen Routing Categories

Assign kitchen routing categories to products to filter the products on the kitchen displays and chits.

  • Define kitchen routing categories using the Kitchen Routing Categories editor (Kitchen Settings).

  • Assign kitchen routing categories to products using the Product List editor (Ordering Settings>Products). If a product does not have any assigned categories, it is only printed from a printer with no assigned categories.

  • Assign kitchen routing categories to kitchen displays using the Kitchen Screen Settings editor (Kitchen Settings). Products are routed to the kitchen display with the same assigned categories.

  • Assign kitchen routing categories to printers using the Peripherals editor (Ordering Settings>Hardware). Products are routed to the printer with the same assigned categories. If a printer does not have any assigned categories, it prints chits for all products.

  • When routing combo meals, the defined child item routing takes precedence over its parent item. If routing is not defined a product, then the product is routed to the kitchen printer connected to the terminal. If a kitchen printer is not connected to the terminal, then the product is routed to the default kitchen printer.
