If you want to print double order dockets or if you want to print two different dockets (1 docket for food and 1 for bev) on the same printer, it's a nice and simple process.
All you need to do is set up second printer in your printers list in the posBoss iPad app, and point it to the same "physical" printer.
On the posBoss iPad Till App - Go to Settings > Printers.
What we’re going to do here is set up an extra printer and point it to the same IP address or MAC address (for Epson) as the printer you are trying to copy. Then you can pop in and assign the same menu sections - and you're done.
Please note: If you have multiple tills taking orders, this process will need to happen on each till.
Let's go through the process step by step:
This assumes you have already set up a printer in your posBoss settings. If not, please scroll to the bottom of this page and watch the Printer Settings Video
Select the printer you want to copy and note down the Network address.
Create a new printer by pressing Create Printer and name it something that makes sense to you - eg: Coffee Orders or Food Orders.
Switch on the Active button.
Select the brand of Printer from the list.
Press Search for Printers and select the same printer as the one you want to copy (The one you noted down earlier)
Ensure Print’s Receipts? is turned off.
Press Prints Orders From Sections and tick on the sections you want printed on this order docket.
Test your printing - you're done here!
