The Bump Bar is where you accept/view/decline orders. The bump bar can be accessed from any device, but it is recommended that you do so on an iPad.
The bump bar can be accessed directly from the Dashboard by clicking 'Bump Bar.'
Breaking Down The Bump Bar
When the Bump Bar is opened, additional options are displayed and viewed. The most important option is to ensure that the 'Activate Incoming Order Sound Alears' option is turned on.
When you click on this button, it becomes active and then disappears. If you see this button appear (Off), make sure to click it again. It should be noted that the button will reappear when additional options are selected. So, if the button becomes visible, make sure to click on it.
Additional Options (buttons) from Left to right are
|**New||When selected, will show all new orders that get placed. Note it is recommended that this option is always selected.|
|Active||Once an order is accepted, the order changes status from 'New' to 'Active'. If this option is selected, all active orders will remain in view.|
|Completed||Once an order is picked up, the order status changes from 'Active' to 'Completed'. Should you wish and once selected all orders that have been completed for that day will remain here.|
|(Icon)||If using the WOWAPPS booking system and using 'Tables'. This icon is a shortcut to take you directly to the table list view.|
|Exit Bump Bar Mode||Will take you out of the bump bar and back to the Dashboard.|
|**Orders||Next to the 'New' button, having the 'Order' button selected will allow orders to appear in the Bump Bar. If left unselected, you WILL NOT see any orders.|
|Bookings||If using the WOWAPPS booking system. When active and a new booking comes through, you will be able to see that booking in the bump bar.|
WOWAPPS recommends the buttons with the ** next to them to always remain on.
A button is on if it's highlighted blue.
In the option above, 'New', 'Active' and 'Orders' are all on, whereas 'Completed' and 'Bookings' have been unselected.
