SECTION 7.2.1: PRINTERS / KDS - Direct Printing

The ability to print is a necessity for nearly any restaurant; whether it is an order printing in the kitchen or a customer's receipt, printing is essential. The Printer / KDS settings are where you will set-up each of your printers and / or KDS's.

Lavu recommends that you use Epson Printers; learn more about which models are compatible and how to set them up.

Don't forget that you need to assign Kitchen printers to Menu Categories and Menu Items.

1. Log in to your Control Panel (cp.poslavu.com) then navigate to Settings > Printers / Technical > Printers / KDS.
