in posBoss iPad app version 4.7.2 we made a change to how the multiplier works, so now it adds individual items to an order/tab rather than one bulk item. This allows you to add up to 50 of the same item to the order/tab and still be able to split the payments by item at payment.
If you are on an older version of posBoss the multiplier functionality doesn't allow splitting.
However, here's a couple of things that might help that we've designed to be quicker than using the multiplier.
Swipe - Try swiping an item button towards the order. Swiping adds the base item to the order quickly, plus any default required mods. This is far quicker than using the multiplier.
Two finger tap - For more complex items with mods added. After the item is added to the order, tap the order item with 2 fingers. This will clone the item.
