Before creating a new order make sure that you have at least one table and one item configurated.

Second and fastest way of adding an item to order is by using a code.

If you want to add specified count of items: press 1..9 key in Available items or in items of the bill. Use - or Delete key in order to remove item. or enter count*item code in Item Code field. For example if you want to add 3 items with 106 code: type 3*106 in Item Code field and press Enter. If you want to remove an item: -3*106

In the bottom side of the Order window you will see Sub total and Total values changed. Sub total is a price of all items without taxes, total is a price with taxes values.

You can add as many items to the order as you need, note that in order list you can see the name of the item, its price (price of each menu item) and quanity. You can remove an item from the orber by choosing it from the order list and clicking Remove item button. When you finish adding items set number of Persons.

Also you should know two order's parameters Start time and Serv time. Start time is a time when the order started, in hh:mm format.
