Section 4.3.2: Advanced Location Settings - General Interface Settings

Advanced Location Settings is home to numerous important and vital settings. It is absolutely necessary for you to become familiar with these settings and how they effect the functionality of the Lavu POS App.

In General Interface Settings, the following settings can be defined:

  • Default service type and Frontend appearance.

  • Orders/Tabs access.

  • Guest Count settings.

  • PIN settings.

  • Management area access level.

DEFAULT SERVICE TYPE AND FRONTEND APPEARANCE:

1. The Default service type drop-down menu presents three options:

  • Tables - this option will set the location’s default view for servers as the Table Layout. This is typically used by standard restaurants, cafes, and dine-in establishments.

  • Tabs - this option will set the location’s default view for servers as the Tab Layout. This is typically used by bars and establishments that run tabs regularly.

  • Quick Serve - this option will set the location’s default view for servers as Quick Serve. This is typically used by establishments that take orders and make sales at a fixed register.

3. Enable or Disable Restrict order access by server if servers do not need to ACCESS other server’s orders.

This setting will prevent servers from opening the same order on two devices at the same, a situation that can cause issues within the Lavu POS system.
