Tags can assist you in labeling products, tables and other items in the cash register and with printing. You can sort products by tags in different Dotypos functions, such as in the sales overview. You can also use tags and printing task settings to specify the items to be printed out on the selected printer/printers. Printing orders from a specific table or cash register can be routed directly to the printer specified by tags.

In addition to standard tags (your own created tags), there are also special tags that provide some functionality and must be entered in the exact sequence. These tags always begin with a dash, which is the character "-". Standard (user) tags are in blue color. And the correctly entered special tags are in red (see the figure below).

If the created tags relate to customers, you will see the tag name at the moment when the customer in the cash register is being selected. You can use tags to distinguish between customers or products, merge them into groups and filter them. Tags can therefore be related to products or customers.

You can create a new tag by clicking inside the field New tag 01 in properties of a product, table, course or customer in the cash register or Dotypos Cloud and by writing the text specifying the tag. Save the tag by clicking on the button DONE on the keyboard. A tag created in this way will be automatically assigned to the product or customer and added to other tags already created. If you need to remove the tag, click on the cross 02 next to the selected tag.




Tag names are case sensitive. Tags with names like “Kitchen” and “kitchen” will be considered two different tags.


Special tags

Special tag for the specific VAT rate

When offering Takeaway sales you can use a special tag to specify which VAT rate will be applied to the product. The applied VAT rate is defined by the tag name: -ta-10 = VAT 10%, -ta-15 = VAT rate 15%, etc.


Special tags for subsequent drawing

For selling coupons (vouchers), Dotypos supports the special tag -voucher. If you add this tag to a product with a 0% VAT rate, the recorded sale will be marked with this information. To claim this voucher retrospectively, use the payment method Credit/Voucher.

When selling used goods, to recognize that the product has the correct VAT rate use the tag -used. The recorded payment will be labeled with the mark representing used goods. If for the payment method you use the issuance of invoices, you can insert into the invoice note some text about the special sale mode.


Specific procedures for selling and receiving coupons (vouchers) and advances, or for selling used goods, can be found in the knowledge database.


Special tag for joint sale

Behavior of a joint salethat is used e.g. to add returnable containers to an order, changes the tag -js-simple. At a joint sale the number of pieces follows the charged item relating to the joint sale by default. So for example, if you charge 5x bottled beer, 5 pcs of returnable bottles will be added to the order as well.

However, if you mark the main product, i.e. beer in this case, with the tag -js-simple, the billed quantity of bottled beer will not be followed and the preset quantity of the added item, i.e. returnable bottle, will be used. This is useful e.g. for products being sold without containers and the customer takes them away in one purchased bag or jar. In that case you bill e.g. 2x pour rice and only 1x special bag is added to the order.


Special tag for account assignment

For product assignment use the tag with the prefix -ac- (so e.g. -ac-P0001).
