Courses allow you to sort individual products according to their character – starters, main courses, soups. You can use the courses created in the cash register, or you can create your own and assign product or categories to them. When charging courses and parking orders, orders will be printed out on the printer for orders automatically.
If you open a have parked order with courses, you can use buttons to send specifications for the preparation of individual courses to the kitchen. These specifications will be also printed out on the printer for orders. So the kitchen will receive the notice to prepare the course. By default the courses are not activated in the touch cash register, so you have to enable them first.
Curses are inactive by default in Dotypos, so they must be enabled first. You can also use courses if you are using Mobile Waiter for billing.

How do you work with courses?
Modify or delete the default courses, or create new ones. Do not forget to set up their proper sequence. For individual courses you can assign tags and define e.g. the printer for printing receipts or orders related to this course.
Furthermore, you can specify in the settings whether the buttons to send demands to the kitchen should be displayed in open orders (option Enable preparation requests), or if you do not want to inform the kitchen until the second or next course is being prepared. This is useful e.g. when the starter (first course in settings) is prepared by the crew, not in the kitchen.
Standardly charge products that belong to the courses and park the order to the table – the overall order will be automatically printed out. Once you open the parked order again, you will see the button for preparing requests for the kitchen. Each tap on the button sends the next preparation request for a specific course (from the first to the last one) to the printer for orders.
Usually after preparing the last course and servicing the guests, the order can be closed and settled up.
You can also select the course by long tapping on the product tile or directly in the window with charged items using the pencil icon (charged product properties):
