This document explains about the functionalities of the feature Alternate Printer.
Changes in the Back Office
Kitchen Printers & Label Printers
A new field Alternate Printer will be displayed in the Kitchen Printer pop-up.
It is a drop-down field.
It displays all the kitchen Printer/KDS names configured in the store.
The user will be allowed to select any one of the options.
When the Type is chosen as Printer, then the options in the Alternate printer will display only the type Printer. ie, KDS names will not be displayed.
When the Type is chosen as KDS, then the options in the Alternate printer will display only the type KDS. ie, Printer names will not be displayed.
When the user is configuring the Printer/KDS for the first _me, then disable the op_on Alternate Printer. Because the dropdown does not have any values to select.
The user will not be allowed to select the same Printer name for the Alternate Printer. For example,
When the Printer name is P1, then the user will not be allowed to select the same in the Alternate Printer. This op_on might be displayed in the edit mode.
The above-mentioned changes will also be applicable to the Label Printers.
Changes in the iPad
When the printer reroute is configured in the Back Office, then in the iPad during failure of printing, the system will search for the alternate printer and get printed.
When the printer reroute is not configured in the Back Office, then in the iPad during failure of printing, the system will search for the alternate printer and get printed.
When the first printer is failed, an alert message saying, “Unable to connect <P1>. Hence the printing will be continued in <P2>.” will be displayed and then will be redirected to the second printer.
