Restaurants have specific needs that shops don’t have. That’s why Odoo gives restaurant owners several unique features to help them manage their business in the best possible way.
Floor and table management, bill splitting, or even the possibility to print orders from the kitchen, everything is there to help your business shine and your employees to work efficiently.
To activate the bar/restaurant features, go to `Point of Sale --> Configuration --> Point of Sale` and open your PoS. Now, select Is a Bar/Restaurant.
New features are shown with a fork and a knife next to it, indicating that they are restaurant-specific.
Add a floor
Once your Point of Sale has been configured, select Table Management under `Point of Sale --> Configuration --> Point of Sale`. Then, click on Floors to create and name your floor and tables.
Don’t forget to link your floor to your point of sale.
To add tables, you can also open your PoS interface to see your floor(s).
Then, click on Edit Mode (pencil icon on the upper right corner) to be allowed to create, move, modify tables, etc.
To make your table easier to be found, you can rename them, change their shape, size or even color. It is also possible to add the maximum number of sits the table can have.
Register your table(s) orders
To register an order, click on the respective table. By doing so, you are taken to your main interface.
If your customers want to move to another table after they already ordered, use the transfer button. This way, the order is also moved to the new table.
To do so, select the table your customer is currently on.
Now, click on the transfer button and select the table to which you are transferring your customer.
Register an additional order
When registering an order, use the + button to simultaneously proceed to another one.
Then, you can shift between your orders and process the payment when needed.
The - button allows you to remove the order you are currently on.
