Select Maintenance > Hardware > Labels to access this function.
Use the Labels function to print an item or guest check label based on your business needs.
Group Bar: Settings
Name — Identifies the label.
Type — Indicates the type of label to print.
- Item — Prints a label that contains information about the item in the intended container. If you select ‘Print barcode’ under the ‘Print options’ group bar, the label prints with a barcode that, when scanned, returns information about the item. If the container includes more than one item, a label prints for each item in the order. The Aloha POS system then uses the item information on the label to ring up the item.
Note: The label conveys no guest check information.
- Guest check — Prints a label that contains guest check information about the item or items in the intended container. If you select ‘Print barcode’ under the ‘Print options’ group bar, the label prints with a barcode that, when scanned, returns information that is used with the Get Check function to pull up the customer check. You can then close the check if the guest is in the store, or you can transfer it to a driver for delivery. If you select ‘Guest check’ as the label type, you cannot assign the label to a menu item. If you subsequently change the selected label to ‘Guest check,’ prior label assignments to menu items involving the label become invalid.
Printer group — Determines the locations where the label prints.
Text Size — Specifies the default text size to use on the label. Choose from Large, Medium, and Small.
Group Bar: Print options
