  2. Toggle On for Order Tracker.

  3. Fresh KDS will scan for your Order Tracker. Once detected, the number of Order Trackers Connected will increase.

  4. Toggle On to display orders that are ‘Being Prepared.’

    • Select which Order Types to display on your customer-facing screen.
      When the indicated order type is received on the KDS, it will also appear under the Being Prepared Column.

      When the indicated order type is bumped (cleared) from the KDS, it will appear under the Ready Column.
