New Features

  • Floor View Enhancements ✨

    We have enhanced the floor view with added visual cues to improve your Eat App experience.

    • Colors: The colors assigned to table statuses have been enhanced to improve visibility.
    • Labels: To help provide more information at a glimpse, each table will now have the table name label attached to the bottom at all times. A new "guest name" label also displays the diner's name on each table.

  • Gaze into the future 🔮

    Users can now see their floor view for any future time to gain a better understanding of their upcoming reservations, confirmed/not confirmed tables, assigned tables, and more.

    This feature will help restaurant managers better prepare for and manage upcoming shifts.

    To look at your floor view for a future time, simply click on the clock icon on the top right of the floor view and choose a suitable time.

  • Reservation Status Groups 🍽

    Reservations can now be filtered according to a new group - lifecycle, that filters them on the basis of their lifecycle categories: Upcoming, Waitlist, Pre-service, In-service, Finished, and Removed.

    The reservation lifecycle status also reflects while making a reservation, selecting the reservation status, in the reservation details, and on the reservation cell.

  • Payment Enhancements 💳

    Our payment solutions have become more flexible than ever with 3 new payment types:

    • Lump: The user has to pay a lump pre-booking amount for the entire booking
    • Per Cover: The user has to pay a pre-booking amount for each cover
    • Package: The user has to pay the amount attached to the selected package

    In addition to that, when refunding a captured payment , you can now choose to refund a partial amount or the full amount.
