Can I get Paperless to make a sound when orders come in?

Paperless can certainly DING! Here's how to set it up.

We've set up the Paperless DING to happen on the iPad and not affect any music you may be streaming through bluetooth or wi-fi to your speakers.

Firstly let's chat about what goes Ding and what doesn’t?

Things that Ding are:

  • New Orders

  • Split Tabs

  • Split Tables

  • Hospo Orders

  • Wastage (the ding will happen but no order will appear on screen)

The No Dingers:

  • Voids

  • Moving orders to new stages

  • Renaming tabs 

  • Moving tabs to tables

  • Moving a table to another table

Now let's get Dinging!

There's three areas to check to make sure you're happily dinging away. 

1 - Silent Mode on your iPad set to OFF

Make sure this little bell looks like it does below in your iPad Control Centre.

2 - Turn up "ringer and alerts"

Head to Settings > Sounds on your iPad and make sure your RINGER AND ALERTS setting is pumping out the volume!

3 - Your Paperless Settings

Head to Settings in Paperless and select Configure Device and make sure it's ticked on.. Make sure the Enable New Order Alert is switched ON.

And that's it. You'll be dinging away in no time!
