About all day view

When you enable all day view for your restaurant, a Show All Day View option appears in the KDS device title bar. Employees can use this feature to see totals for identical menu items, with or without information about modifiers, by temporarily switching from the ticket screen to all day view. All day view gives your kitchen employees a way to verify how many of each item they need to be working on at any given time.

An example of the KDS device for a sports bar that specializes in chicken wings and chicken tenders served with different kinds of sauces follows.

To see the current total for each unique menu item with a fired item, you tap Show All Day View. In the following illustration, all day view is configured to show the item names and totals only.

Kitchen employees might prefer this configuration of all day view if a server or packer is responsible for adding the selected sauces to each dish before service.

Another configuration option for all day view adds the course (if any) and the totals for modifiers under each menu item.

Kitchen employees might prefer this configuration of all day view if the wings and tenders need to be coated with the selected sauces at the prep station.
