How to fulfill an order

Tap the banner of the order card to fulfill an order. Green cards to the left of the dotted line are fulfilled orders. Orders to the right are unfulfilled


Card Colors: How the long has been sitting unfulfilled

Gray = 0 - 5 minutes
Orange = 5 - 7 minutes 
Red = 7+ minutes
Blue = Scheduled Order


Expo card items: tap the item to apply prep cycle

Fork & Knife: This item is being prepared

Paper Airplane: This item has been sent to the table


MULTI-ITEMS: The number of the same items that are unfulfilled

This is meant to save time for the staff. For example, let's say there are 9 Fog IPAs ordered by 5 different tables, the bartender can quickly look at the multi-items and know that they need to pour 9 Fog IPAs.
