Par Level Forecasting Tool

Revel now features a par level forecasting tool for its users. Particularly relevant for Quick Servicer users who have items that need to be prepared throughout the day, this feature allows users to know how many of those items to have prepared and ready before the customer orders, rather than having to produce items as a customer orders.

The Product Forecasting settings have been Settings > Reports page. Clicking the “Enable Item Tracking” check box will expose the “Number of Weeks” and “Time Last Item Can Be Produced” settings in the classic view for settings, as shown in Figure 1. Use the “Number of Weeks” setting to choose the number of previous weeks to use when calculating the forecasted sales of a product. For example: if the user configured four weeks, the system will calculate the average sales over the past four Mondays and show that data in the new Item Tracking Report for the upcoming Monday.

product_tracking_settings.jpg

Figure 1. Product Forecasting Settings

The “Enable Item Tracking” setting also enables the Item Tracking Report, which will appear in the Reports section of the Management Console. The report produces sales data per configured time period live throughout the day. Users can filter the data shown on this report for specific days, using the “Custom Day” field. Figure 2 shows a populated Item Tracking Report, but it’s important to note that the report will not show any forecasting data until the user configures their product tracking sets.

item_tracking_report.jpg

Figure 2. Item Tracking Report.

Clicking the “Edit Tacking Sets” button in the top right corner of the report (highlighted in Figure 2) takes the user to the “Item Tracking | Tracking Sets” page, where they can configure the items they wish to track for forecasting data. Users will need to enter a name for the tracking set, the sort number for the set (which order the sets will appear on the report), and set how often the system will gather and display forecasting data. Users can set the system to gather data hourly, every half hour, every 15 minutes, or once daily.

Users will then select which products to include in the tracking set. For each product they will need to enter a conversion rate, meaning, how many individual units to track. For example, if the product is a six pack of cookies, and the user wants to track individual cookie sales, they should enter “6” in the conversion box for that product.

item_tracking_sets.jpg

Figure 3. Item Tracking Sets Configuration Page

The Item Tracking Report allows users to save data from a specific day as a template, for use in future forecasting. For example, an establishment could save their sales data from Black Friday as a specific day, and use that day as their forecasted sales for the following year.

Clicking the “Save Actual as Template” button (highlighted in Figure 2) will save the data currently being displayed as a template, which will be viewable any time. Saved templates can be accessed in the “Use to forecast” drop down menu. Users will always have the option to view the “Real data from last n weeks”, with the n equaling the number they configured in the “Number of Weeks” field for their Product Tracking settings.

Table Reservations

In order to accommodate the many needs of our table service users, Revel has now released the Table Reservation feature. This new option allows users to create reservations for new or existing customers. In order to configure this setting in the Management Console, the “Enable table reservations” (staff only) option needs to be enabled. Once enabled, the “Reservations” tab will then appear on the POS menu, as shown in Figure 5 below.

Table_Reservation_Tabs.png

Figure 5. Reservations Tab

Tapping the “Reservations” tab will bring up the Reservations calendar, allowing the user to create a reservation by selecting a specified date and time. Tapping the date range arrows “<” “>” allows the user to adjust the date, accordingly, as shown in Figure 6 below.

Reservation_Date.png

Figure 6. Reservations Date Range

Tapping the “+” icon on a desired date and time brings up the “Add Reservation” screen, allowing the user to create a reservation for the specified date and time. Users can create a reservation for either a new or existing customer. The user can do this by entering the name, contact number, details (notes), party size, and table preference(s) in the corresponding fields, as shown in Figure 7 below. Tapping the inset_0.jpg icon allows the user to assign an available table to the reservation.

Add_Reservation.png

Figure 7. Add Reservation

Tapping “Add” located near the upper right corner of the screen will then create the reservation and take the user back to the Reservations calendar, allowing the user to track and edit the reservation, as desired. Tapping the pencil icon will bring up a popup window, allowing the user to make specific changes to the reservation, as shown in Figure 8 below.

Edit_Reservation.png

Figure 8. Edit Reservation

Waitlist

In addition to the Reservations feature, Revel has now also released the Waitlist feature. This new option allows users to waitlist new or existing customers. In order to configure this setting in the Management Console, the “Enable table reservations” (staff only) option needs to be enabled. Once enabled, the “Waitlist” tab will then appear on the POS menu.

Tapping the “Waitlist” tab on the left hand side of the “Reservations” tab will bring up the waitlist. Tapping “View” will allow the user to view the waitlist by “Present” or “History”, as shown in Figure 9 below.

Waitlist_Tab.png

Figure 9. Waitlist Tab

NOTE: If a reservation is set for a future date, the reservation will not appear on the waitlist until the date of reservation. “History” view will display customers that were once removed from the waitlist.

Tapping the +New Party tab near the upper right corner will bring up the “Waitlist | Add New Party” screen, allowing the user to add a customer to the waitlist. Much like creating a new reservation, users can add a new party to the waitlist by selecting a new or an existing customer. The user can do this by entering the customer’s name, contact number, order details (table notes), party size, and table preference(s), in the corresponding fields. Additionally, by check marking the “Auto notify by text” option, which is off by default, a user can automatically text a customer, alerting them of their reservation. Also, the user can select a “Type (Walk in, Call in)”, “Party Size”, “Quoted Wait (time)”, as shown in Figure 10 below.

Waitlist_walkin.png

Figure 10. Add New Party to Waitlist

NOTE: If a customer requires a special need, such as a booth, wheelchair, outside, highchair, bar, etc., a user can assign the table with a “Table Tag”. Table Tags is a staff only setting, which is enabled in the Management Console.

Tapping “Add”, located near the upper right corner of the window will then add the party to the waitlist and bring the user back to the “Waitlist” window, allowing the user to edit an entry, assign a table, and or check in and seat a party.

Waitlist_action_tabs.png

Figure 11. Waitlist Action Tabs

The iconography below “Type” indicates the type of reservation. The Walk_in_Icon.png icon indicates a “Walk in”, while the Reservation_Icon.png icon indicates a “Reservation”. The iconography below “Seat Party” allows the user to check in or seat a party. The Check_in_Customer.png icon checks in the party, while the Seat_Customer.png icon seats the customer.

“Time Targeted” is based on the “Quoted Wait” time selected. The “Est. Time Until Ready” is based on available tables and estimated turn times for occupied tables. Estimated turn times are set up in the Management Console.

Once a party has been added to the “Waitlist”, tapping the “Check in” icon will allow the user to check in a customer prior to seating them. Once a user has checked in a customer, tapping the seat icon will bring up the “All Tables” screen, allowing the user to check the status of all the tables at the establishment. Using the table tabs near the top of the screen, the user can filter by the tables “In Use” and tables “Available”, as shown in Figure 12 below.

Assign_Table_Waitlist.png

Figure 12. Tables Tabs

Users can then assign a table to the customer by checking the box on the left hand side of any available table. Tapping “Done” will then assign that table to the customer. Tapping the “Tables” tab will then display the POS table layout screen with the assigned table.

Table_Display.png

Figure 13. Table Display

When a party has been seated and has ordered any item, they are not eligible to be put back on the waitlist from the “History View,” screen. However, the party will still be listed on this screen, with the arrow icon INACTIVE.

When a party has been seated, but not ordered an item, they will be allowed to be put back on the waitlist from the waitlist history screen. However, in this case, they are removed from the table and are no longer “seated” at any table. Their targeted table is still there, but they are not “seated” anymore. The user can then change the targeted table manually.

When a party is seated, the record of their reservation on the calendar will be updated and indicated they were seated, with the word “Seated” (to the right of notes). Also, the Edit icon will be deactivated. This ensures that the user has a record of the reservation in the calendar, but that reservation can no longer be edited from the calendar.

If a party is moved back to the waitlist from the Waitlist History screen, the “edit” icon in the calendar becomes active again, and the “seated” text is removed.

Messaging

Revel has added functionality for users to send SMS messaging to their customers that are on the waitlist or the reservations calendar. In order to configure this feature on the Management Console, the “Enable table reservations” (staff only) option needs to be enabled. Once enabled, users will see the new Messaging settings page nested under Table Reservations on the Settings page. These pages are only visible under “Advanced” settings. Once enabled, users can send SMS messages to either wait-listed customers or customers with table reservations.

To send SMS messages, users must provide their Account SID, Auth Token, and the phone number associated to their Twilio account. Twilio settings can be found on the Settings > Social Networks/Marketing > Twilio page of the Management Console. These settings can also be fully permissioned, as shown in Figure 14.

messaging_admin_permissions.png

Figure 14. Administrator Permissions, Messaging

On the Messaging settings page, users can enter preset messages, and determine how and when those messages are sent to their customers, as shown in Figure 15. Messages can be sent to customers automatically, at a defined time either after the customer has been added to the waitlist, or before the “Quoted Wait Time”. Additionally, messages can be sent manually only if the “Automatic” box for the corresponding message preset is unchecked.

messaging_settings_mgmt.png

Figure 15. Messaging Settings

Users can send preset or customized messages to either wait-listed customers or customers with table reservations by tapping the pencil icon next to a customers name, followed by “Send Message”, as shown in Figure 16 below.

Send_Message.png

Figure 16. Send Message

Tapping “Send Message” will bring up the “Send SMS message…” window, allowing the user to send manual preset message(s) or a personalized message to a customer. Additionally, the user can see automatic or manual message history below “Send Message(s):”

Taxes by Dining / Order Option

In order to accommodate customers from parts of the world where tax rates are assessed based on whether the order is to go or eat in, Revel has introduced the ability to set different tax rates depending on the dining / order option.

The “Tax by Dining/Order Option” setting has been added to the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page. Once this setting is enabled, the “Default Dining/Order Option” setting and the “Recalculate Price of tax Included Products if Dining/Order option is not default” setting appear.

The “Default Dining/Order Option” sets the default dining option for the establishment for the purpose of calculating prevailing tax. Generally, the default option for Table Service and QSR establishments is “Eat In”, and “To Go” for Retail establishments. The “Recalculate Price of tax Included Products if Dining/Order option is not default” may be used by tax included businesses and products. If enabled, Revel will use the prevailing tax rate to calculate a base price for the product. The price that is charged to the client will vary by the tax rate. If this setting is not enabled, the price charged to the client will always be the same and the base price will vary according to the tax rate.

taxes_per_dining_option_settings.png

Figure 18. Taxes by Dining/Order Option Settings

taxes_per_dining_options.png

Figure 19. Default Dining/Ordering Options

Once the “Tax by Dining/Order Option” setting has been enabled, the “Dining Options” field is added to the Individual Taxes section of the Products > Taxes page, as shown in Figure 20 and 21 below. Each tax will have a list of dining/order options. The user will add the dining options they want to the list. If none are included, then all are presumed to be included.

taxes_per_dining_option_individual_taxes.png

Barcode and Price Tag Label Printing

Users can now print labels from the Management Console. Labels are generated in PDF form, which can then be sent to a peripheral label printer.

Barcode settings are listed as the “Barcode standard” option on the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page. UPC-a, EAN-13, and code128 barcode formats are supported.

The Price Tag Print settings page has been added to the Settings section of the Management Console (Settings > Price Tag Print). On this page, users can configure options for pricing labels, stock labels, and jewelry labels, as shown in Figure 22. Users can set the label height and width, font size, and select whether the name and price of the product are printed on the label.

Campaigns

For merchants that offer the White Label App to their customers, or merchants participating in Revel’s ordering pilot app (limited set of merchants for now), Revel has introduced the campaigns feature, allowing them to provide promotions (time boxed, linked to discounts) to store locations listed on the apps. To enable campaigns, clients need to contact Revel support to activate the functionality on their Management Console. Once done, they will see that the Campaigns page has been added to the CRM section of their Management Console.

Customizable Payment Types

In order to give more flexibility to our users around the world, Revel has implemented the ability for users to build their own payment types. Users can define different payment types on the Management Console, and corresponding payment buttons will be created on the POS. The Settings > Customizable Payments Types page has been created, shown in Figure 33 below. These are global settings and will be applied to all other establishments within a brand.

custom_payment_types_settings.png

Figure 33. Customizable Payment Types Settings Page

When configuring a new payment type the user will need to define the following:

  • Payment Name – The name of the payment type as it appears on the POS and in reports.
  • Type – Sets whether the payment is a cash or credit type for the printing of receipts and tracking purposes. Cash type payments will open the cash drawer.
  • Capture ID – If enabled, the user will be prompted to input a transaction ID when this payment is applied.
  • ID Label – Sets the label for the transaction ID on the POS and receipts.
  • Change Label – Sets the label used for the change on the receipts if the payment amount exceeds the balance due.

Any configured custom payment options will need to be enabled on the Establishment > Stations page for each station that can support those payments. Custom payments appear at the bottom of the order of payment options, and will need to be moved up in the order to be displayed on the POS, as shown in Figure 34. Any custom payment data will appear of the Sales Summary Report, the Payment Summary Report, and the All Establishment Payments Report.

custom_payment_types_establushment.png

Figure 34. Custom Payment Options, Establishment Stations

Once custom payments have been configured and enabled on the POS stations, the “Custom” payment button appears on the payment screen of the POS, shown in Figure 35. Tapping that button when taking a payment for an order will bring up a window that allows users to select from their configured custom payments, shown in Figure 36.

Enforce Email Uniqueness

The “Enforce email uniqueness” and “Enable Filtering by Establishment” settings on the Settings > Customer Info page have been enhanced. Revel will now consolidates customer email address information so that if a user creates a duplicate customer email address, the records are consolidated into one. The user is must enable “Enforce email uniqueness” prior to enabling “Customer Filtering by Establishment”. “Enable Filtering by Establishment” is now a staff only setting.

Establishment Hierarchy Tree

Brands and establishments are now displayed in a hierarchical structure in the Management Console. The establishment_hierarchy_tab.png icon has been added to the left side of all Management Console screens. Clicking on the tab displays the Establishment Tree, shown below in Figure 38. Users can also click the Establishment(s) field in the upper blue bar.

establishment_hierarchy_tree.png

Figure 38. Establishment Tree

Clicking on the establishment_hierarchy_expand_icon.png icon will expose all establishments under that division or group. Clicking on an establishment will select that establishment. Clicking a division or a company enables EMS mode for all establishments under that division.

Clicking the “expand all” button at the top right hand corner of the window will open all division and group folders to show all establishments within them. Clicking the “collapse all button” will close all folders down to the main divisional folder and the Groups folder.

Users with the appropriate administrative permissions will be able to perform actions like, move establishments in the tree to different nested positions, both within groups and divisions, change the name of establishments, etc. They will also be able to right click (tapping/clicking the track pad with two fingers on a Mac laptop) on a division, displaying a menu that allows them to rename the division, add a new division, or delete the division. Right clicking an establishment gives users the option to rename that establishment, duplicate it, set that establishment as the base establishment when in EMS mode, or deactivate that establishment.

Clicking the “Save” button will save any of these types of changes that were made.

Any pre-existing establishment groups have been migrated to the Groups section of the tree. Users may also create other groups to help them manage their enterprise. Groups have only two layers, meaning that groups cannot be nested under other groups, only establishments can. Right clicking the “Groups” folder allows users with the appropriate permissions to create a new group. Clicking a group enables EMS mode for all establishments under that group.

Once in EMS mode, hovering the cursor over the selected division in the Establishment(s) field will display a list of all the establishments under that division, shown in Figure 39 below. This functionality is also support for the single establishment view.

ems_establishments_popup.png

Financials Page Redesign

The Settings > Manager > Financials screen on the POS has been enhanced for usability. Now, the Daily Cash Log, Daily Payment Summary, Payment Log, and Sales Report are listed clearly with their own corresponding actions buttons. Revel has worked to improved the ease of use and functionality for the four major reports on this screen, adding more explicit names for the reports and adding a short description of what they are. Figure 40 shows the new screen.

NOTE: Revel has discontinued support for old icon functionality.

Tapping the “Include” bar will bring up the “Employees” and “POS Stations” tabs. Using these tabs, users can filter the data generated in the Sales Report by specific employees and/or specific POS Stations. They can also choose to include data from all employees and all POS Stations. Figure 43 shows the “Employees” and “POS Stations” tabs. Figure 44 displays a generated sales report.

2.16_Release_Notes_External00006.jpg

Figure 43. Sales Report, Employees and POS Station Filtering Tabs

Depending on settings configured on the management console, users can include data about open orders, product data, hourly sales, labor and types of transactions. They may also choose to run the report based on local data. This is data stored on the POS, rather than on the server. This data may be incomplete, so Revel recommends this option only for off-line mode.

When printing reports, if users select employee X, POS 1, and POS 2, two reports will be printed: one for the employee X on both stations. If the user selects employee X and employee Y, POS 1 and POS 2, four reports will be generated.

Punchh Loyalty

Revel has integrated with Punchh loyalty. The “Punchh Loyalty” setting has been added to the Settings > Gift, Rewards and Admin Cards page.

Redesigned Settings Page

To improve usability, Revel has enhanced the Settings page on the Management Console. Now, the Settings page uses a navigational tree-structure and features a search bar. Using the new style, the user can easily navigate for settings by clicking the expand (“+”) or collapse (“-”) tabs, as needed, or search for a specific setting using the newly added search bar, located above the settings tree. Additionally, the user can now save changes and push them directly to the POS by clicking “Save & Push to POS”, causing all POS stations of the establishment to refresh immediately or after a current order is closed. Lastly, the user can revert back to the original Settings display by clicking the “Classic view” icon. The new Settings page looks like Figure 45 below.

The user can edit the status of the RMA by selecting from four status options, as shown in Figure 50:

  • Save (New) saves any changes made to the RMA.
  • Approved indicates that the vendor has agreed to accept the returned merchandise.
  • Sent indicates that the return merchandise has been sent. Once the RMA is in the sent status, the items are taken out of product inventory.
  • Close (Paid) indicates that the return has been received by the vendor and vendor has issued a refund. Revel reduces inventory depending on “Closed” RMAs.

Safe Drops

Revel now gives users the ability to make and manage safe deposits from tills. Users can now go to the new Cash Office report to see all “Safe” related activities, including all safe drops from tills, all bank drops from a safe to a bank, and all safe counts (audits without bank drops).

The Cash Office report has been added to the Reports section of the Management Console (Reports > Other Reports > Cash Office) as shown in Figure 51 below.

Reports_OtherReports_CashOffice.jpg

Figure 51. Cash Office Report

Clicking the grey (i.e., unconfirmed) check mark inset_1.jpg will let the user count the safe drop and complete the deposit into the safe, as shown in Figure 52.

inset_2.jpg

Figure 52. Safe Deposit

The green check mark inset_000007.jpg confirms that there is no variance from the expected count.

The red check mark inset_3.jpg indicates that a safe deposit was confirmed, but was either over or under.

Clicking the Safe icon inset_4.jpg will let the user count the safe and also deposit the money to a bank, which may be optional.

All rows will be expandable to show details of each transaction, as shown in Figure 53.

inset_5.jpg

Figure 53. Expandable Transaction Details

Users can filter data by selecting any combination of:

  • “Type” (Safe Deposit, Safe Count, Bank Deposit)
  • “Status” (Confirmed, Unconfirmed, Error)
  • “Date” (Today, Yesterday, This Week, Last Week, This Month, Last Month, Custom)

Users will be able to export data to Excel, save as a PDF document, and or Print using the print icon inset_6.jpg.

Store to Store Transfer Status

Revel has enhanced its product inventory transfer functionality. Inventory transfers now display status information, such “Sent” and “Fully Received”, about the product transfer. Users can also see acknowledgment from the receiving establishment, indicating that the inventory has arrived and has been added to active inventory.

The Inventory > Transfer page has been updated, and now shows the Transfer List table. This table displays all inventory transfers, and labels the transfer ID, the sending and receiving establishments, the receipt number (if applicable), the number of items in the transfer, the date and time the transfer was created, and the status of that transfer.

The information displayed on this page can be filtered by Transfer Type (incoming or outgoing), or by status (new, finalized, sent, partially received, fully received). Users can also filter by the barcode, SKU, products, or ingredients in the transfer, or by a custom date range. Figure 54 shows the Transfer List of an establishment who has performed an outgoing inventory transfer.

transfer_list_product_inventory_outgoing.jpg

Figure 54. Transfer List Screen

Outgoing transfers will display the transfer_inventory_edit_icon.jpg edit icon in the Actions column, allowing users to edit saved transfers, and view the details of finalized transfers. Incoming transfers will display the transfer_inventory_receive_icon.jpg receive icon in the Actions column, allowing users to view and receive incoming transfers.

Saved transfers can be reopened and edited or deleted. Items in saved transfers are still considered “in stock” in the sending establishment’s inventory. Finalized transfers can no longer be edited or deleted. Items are still considered “in stock” but are no longer seen as “active” and cannot be sold from the sending establishment’s inventory.

Clicking the “New Transfer” button at the top right of the table will bring up the New Outgoing Store Transfer page, allows users to perform an inventory transfer and import/exports as they would in previous versions.

When receiving inventory transfers, clicking the receive icon (shown above) will bring up the Inbound Store Transfer page for the selected transfer. Figure 56 shows an example of that page.

new_incoming_transfer.jpg

Figure 56. Inbound Store Transfer Page

On this screen users can view detailed information about the sending and receiving establishments, as well has item information, such as SKUs and barcodes. If a user were to view the details of an outgoing transfer, they would see an identical Outgoing Store Transfer screen, with the only difference being the absence of the “Receive Items” button.

On incoming transfers, clicking the “Receive Items” button will bring up a Receive Items From Store Transfer window for that inventory transfer. This window provides details about the items contained in the transfer, and allows the user to finalize, or partially finalize the inventory transfer.

Management Console Enhancements

Restaurant Establishments

Catering

The “Require manager approval for same day catering orders” option has been added to the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page. If enabled, a user with manager access will need to approve any catering order for delivery on the current day.

Kitchen View/Print

The “Use Prep Time to display items on KDS” setting has been added to the Settings > Kitchen View/Kitchen Print page. Enabling this setting displays items on the KDS so that they will all be ready at the same time, based on the longest cook time. This only works if the entire order is sent to the kitchen at once, or by course. This will not work for Cook on Demand orders. This is a global setting, so if users have different items being sent to different KDSs, they will appear at different times on those KDSs. For example, if an order includes a salad that takes three minutes, and a steak that takes six minutes, the salad will appear on the KDS three minutes after the steak.

The “Send to Kitchen on Done” option has been added to the Settings > Kitchen View/Kitchen Print page. When enabled, then an order will be sent to the kitchen display or printer only after the order is closed (after the “Done” button is tapped on the POS payment screen).

Inventory

The “Turn on Delivery for Serial Numbers” setting has been added to the Settings > Inventory Settings page. This option allows users to add items with serial numbers to orders without being prompted to enter a serial number until that item is ready for delivery.

Products

Users can now filter modifiers to display on specific kitchen display stations (KDS) and kitchen printers. For example: a burger establishment can have their cheese modifier appear on the grill KDS where they add it to the burger, but not their tomato modifier, which would appear on the assembly KDS. The “Filter modifier printing” setting has been added to the Settings > Kitchen View/Kitchen Print page. Once this setting is enabled, the “Printer” field appears at the bottom of the Modifiers > Details page allowing the user to select the kitchen printers/KDS that the modifier prints on. Multi-selection is supported.

Receipts and Printing

So, inventory tracking by Product will not be an option). There will also be a Default Product Item created in QuickBooks Online.

During item creation from Revel to QuickBooks Online, if the item is already available in QuickBooks, the system will map with that Item. However, if that item in QuickBooks is already mapped with some other product in Revel, then the integration will create a new item appearing as “#revel_product_id”. Matching is done based on the Quickbooks product name equaling that of the Revel product name. If a product name changes on either side, the system will not match and will either look for another matching product or create a new item.

During Regular Invoice, Refund and Credit Memo integration, items will be passed inside the invoice, credit memo, refunds along with quantities and amounts. For example, if there are five types of Products sold on the Revel POS in ten different orders, each product is sold in five unit quantities. Then in the QuickBooks Online invoice, there will be five line items each representing the respective products in Revel showing the five units for each product and their total amount.

Mobile numbers for vendors can now be imported and exported between Quickbooks Online and Revel.

Revel has introduced new object mappings for QuickBooks Online Payout accounts for new connections. Payin Debit will be mapped to Cash on Hand/Drawer and Payin Credit will be mapped to Cash Drawer Payins; while, Payout Debit will be mapped to Cash Drawer Payout and Credit will be mapped to Cash on Hand/Drawer.

To enhance our integration with Intuit, all manual balance adjustments on gift cards are now accurately done using either the Management Console or iPad POS. Manual adjustments can be made using the Management Console, on the Reports > More Reports > Gift Cards page or on the POS Settings window under Gift Cards.

To enhance our integration with Intuit, Revel has now created a few separate liability accounts in QuickBooks Online. The “Customer Deposit” liability account has been changed to “Other Current Liabilities”. The “Gift Cards Outstanding” liability account has been changed to “Other Current Liabilities”. The “Employee Tips” liability account has changed to “Other Current Liabilities”. The “Gift Cards Adjustment” liability account has changed to “Gift Cards Adjustment”.

Manual gift card changes performed in the Gift Cards report are now transitioned into QuickBooks Online. Changes to “Remaining Balances” fields on the report will create a Journal Entry in QuickBooks Online for the affected gift cards. Adding amounts to gift cards will “Debit” Gift Card Adjustment Accounts and “Credit” Gift Cards Outstanding Accounts in QuickBooks Online. Manually decreasing gift card amounts will have the opposite effect.

Receipts and Printers

The “Display station of payment on receipt” option has been added to the Settings > Receipts page. When enabled, the station that processed the final payment for an order will be indicated on the receipt. If disabled, the station name will default to where the order was initially taken. This is useful for establishments that wish to take tips out of the till immediately after a payment was made. It allows users to keep track of which tills they are deducting from.

The “Add call number on pay” option has been added to the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page. Selecting this option will add a call number to the transaction, so as to provide sequentially numbered receipts.

The “Print all void receipts” check box has been replaced with a drop down combo box. From the drop down combo box, the user can now select the “Prompt” option; if selected, a prompt message will appear on the POS allowing the user to print all void receipts, as needed. This enhancement has been added to the Settings > Receipts > Print all void receipts page, as shown in Figure 99 below.

Print_All_Void_Receipts_Dropdown.png

Figure 99. Print all void receipts check box

Reports

The “Include tips in totals” check box has been added to the Operations Report. If enabled, the “Net To Account For” section and the “Payments” section (both the totals for each payment line, and the sum of all totals) will reflect tips.

The “Percentage” column has been added to the Payment Summary Report. This column displays what percentage of the total payments a method of payment amounts to.

percentage_payment_summary_report.png

Figure 100. Payment Summary, Percentage Column

The Discounts and Voids Report is now available through the API.

The Discounts and Voids / Returns Report has been enhanced to improve usability. The Voids/Returns, Comps, Item Discounts, Order Discounts, Exchange Discounts, and Coupons sections have all been given their own tabs and pages in order to better display the data in each section. An example of the new view can be seen in Figure 101 below.

The “Group By Item” checkbox has been added to the “Voids/Returns”, “Comps”, and “Item Discount” sections of the Discount and Voids/Returns Report. Selecting this option groups the displayed data by item, as shown in Figure 102. Clicking the + icon next to an item expands the section to display each individual order.

Figure 102. Group By Item View

The “Id” column has been added the export files of both the Ingredient Inventory Log report and the Product Inventory Log report. This column displays the internal identification number of each stock movement (transaction) for tracking purposes.

Bank drops are now correctly reflected in the Operations Report when tills are closed from the Management Console.

Revel has enhanced the Customer Insight graph on the Overview page by adding the Customer Insight adjustment setting. This setting has been added to the Settings > Reports > Customer Insight adjustment page of the Management Console. This setting allows the user to compare new and returning customer data for up to the last 12 months and 4000 transactions.

Customer_Insight_Adjustment.jpg

Figure 103. Customer Insight Settings

Users can now include invoices in the Customers’ Orders report. Revel has added a “Include Invoices” check box, allowing the user to generate a more complete Customers’ activity report. This setting has been added to Report > Other Reports > Customers’ Orders.

Report_Customers_Show_Invoices.jpg

Figure 104. Customers’ Order Report

The “SKU” column has been added to the “Item Discounts” tab on the Discount and Voids/Returns Report. The column is also now reflected in PDF, XLS, and CSV exports.

For data security purposes, the Establishment Payments report only shows data form the current establishment, when accessed from the single establishment level. To see data from several establishments, run the report on the EMS.

Scheduling

The “Company code ADP” field on the Schedules > Time Sheet Rules page now accepts all alphanumeric characters.

The “Prevent employee clock-in before break end” setting has been added to the Schedules > Time Sheet Rules page. If enabled, employees will not be allowed to clock back into the POS before the end of their break without manager approval. If this setting is enabled, and an employee tries to clock in before their break ends, the POS will display a popup message indicating the time that the employee is allowed to clock in.

The “Break length” field has also been added to this page. Users can input the possible time lengths of employee breaks in minutes. When an employee clocks out on break, they will be asked how long the break shall be, based on the entered values. This field is only visible if the “Calculate Paid/Unpaid breaks by Rules” setting is not selected.

Service Fees

For fiscal countries, the Service Fee button now appears on a POS station’s action button list (Establishment > Stations page) once the “Enable Service Fee” option has been selected on the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page.

Settings

Revel has added more email notification settings. Users can now be notified by email when product prices are changed and/or when products are created. These settings have been added to the Settings > Email Address page. The “Inventory Stock Alert” has also been renamed to “Product Stock Alert”.

New_Email_Address_Alerts.jpg

Figure 105. Settings > Email Address Page

Third Party Integration

Revel has enhanced its integration with Xero. More configurable fields have been added to the Settings > Third Party API > Xero Integration page, allowing for more flexibility to transfer different types of data into Xero. The “Liability” and “Expenses” fields have been added, shown in Figure 106, allowing users to integrate data from those types of accounts.

xero_expense_liability_fields.png

Figure 106. Xero: New Liability & Expenses Fields

In the “Payment Accounts” fields have been added for users to enter information about different revenue centers, liabilities and expenses.

Miscellaneous

For enhanced fail over functionality, the “Default POS Communication” settings has been added to the Settings > Staff Settings page, under the “Discovery” section. This option sets the primary POS-to-POS communication channel, if both WiFi and Ethernet IP addresses are being used. The Other channel will be used as a backup. Ethernet is recommended for Table Service establishments. For all other establishments, WiFi is recommended.

The maximum number of retries for failed retail and offer transactions has been increased from five to 16. The first five attempts will be sent in the first five hours. Every attempt after that will be performed every five hours.

The Overview section of the Management Console has been enhanced for performance, specifically the “Customer Insight” section.

The Help Center page in the Management Console has been overhauled. By clicking the “Need Help?” link the user will now see an entirely new and enhanced web page. An example of the new page can be seen in Figure 110 below. Users can access links to information regarding the Management Console, iPad POS platform, hardware and networking, software integrations, as well as generally Getting Started topics. All links will take the user to Revel’s knowledge base. From this page, users can also request training, request and on-site technician, and sign up for Revel’s Beta Program.

New_Help_Page.jpg

Figure 110. New Help Centre Page

A new server outage message has been added. In case of a server outage, the message will inform users that their in-store operations will not be affected and that all reporting data will be completed once the server is back up. Additionally, there is now a contact number and email address for support inquiries during an outage.

Figure 114. Enhanced Kiosk Discount Pop-Up

Kiosk displays can now dynamically show discount prices for products. As shown in Figure 116 below, discounted items are now displayed with a green tag image, and the original price crossed out. The “My Order” section only displays the new price. This is controlled by the “Display discounted prices” setting on the Settings > Kiosk page of the Management Console.

discountProd_Kiosk1.png

Figure 115. Enhanced Kiosk Display for Discounted Items

The error message that is seen when a credit card swipe is not read properly has been updated. The message now reads “Error reading card. Please swipe again or try another card”. The message now stays on the screen until cleared by the user. Additionally, the message now contains a “Use Manual Credit” button that transfers the user to the “Manual Credit” payment screen.

Kitchen View/Print

The POS station call number can now be displayed on kitchen display units. Additionally, the “Show iPad Call Number” option has been added to the Settings page on the KDS to enable or disable that functionality, as shown in Figure 116. This option is configurable for all display settings (Expedite, Tile Expedite, Kitchen, Order Display). Figure 117 shows the call number displayed on the Tile Expedite screen, and the Order Display Screen.

The Transfer Orders pages have been enhanced for usability. Users can access this screen by tapping the “Transfer Owner” button on the main order screen. Figure 119 shows the now updated Transfer Orders screen.

transfer_orders_main.jpg

Figure 119. Updated Transfer Orders Screen

Users can select an order to transfer from the left hand portion of the screen, and select an employee from the right hand section. Once a selection has been made on both sections, tapping the “Transfer” button will transfer the order.

Tapping on the “Todays Orders” link will bring up the “Include” menu. From this menu, users can choose to include table orders, bar tabs, and other orders. This menu also gives them access to sorting options, and section filtering options. Tapping the “Sort by” field displays the “Sort by” menu, where users can sort information by employee, table/tab, capacity, section, order status, and order number. Tapping the “Sections” field displays the “Sections” menu, where users can filter information based on the setting section. Figure 120 shows the sorting and filtering menus.

Tapping the “Available” link in the right hand section of the screen allows the user to choose to include either All employees or that are currently clocked in.

2.16_Release_Notes_External00012.jpg

Figure 120. Transfer Orders Sorting and Filtering Options

The “Turn on Delivery for Serial Numbers” setting has been added to the Settings > Inventory Settings page of the Management Console. This option allows users to added items with serial numbers to orders without being prompted to enter a serial number until that item is ready for delivery. If this option disabled, users will be required to add a serial number immediately upon adding an item to an order. The “Support serial numbers” option must be enabled for this option to be visible.

Service Fees

Revel can now auto apply service fees by Dining Option, on a per-item basis. On the Products > Service Fees > Service Fee Details page of the management console, selecting “Item” as the application type now displays the “Service Fee AutoApply” section. However, the only configurable value for the “Type” field for “Item” application type service fees is “By Dining Type”. Once that value has been selected, the “Dining Option” field appears, allowing the user to define the dining option that will trigger the application of the service fee. On the POS, the Order Screen will display a section for each grouped service fee just as it does for order fees.

Table Service

On Table Service establishments, for tables that have multiple orders on them, the POS now displays the status of each order in the popover for that table, as shown in Figure 121.

table_service_multiple_order_popup.png

Figure 121. Enhanced Table Popover

Revel has Introduced the “Key – table status” pop-up window that graphically explains the meaning of each status color for tables in the Table Layout screens, shown in Figure 122. The window can be accessed by tapping the “Key” icon found in the lower-right corner of the screen.

pos_table_status_key.png

Figure 122. Table Status Key

Revel has introduced several modifications to the Waitlist History behavior on the POS.

  • When a party has been seated and has ordered any item, they are not eligible to be put back on the waitlist from the “History View,” screen. However, the party will still be listed on this screen, with the arrow icon INACTIVE.
  • When a party has been seated, but not ordered an item, they will be allowed to be put back on the waitlist from the waitlist history screen. However, in this case, they are removed from the table and are no longer “seated” at any table. Their targeted table is still there, but they are not “seated” anymore. The user can then change the targeted table manually.
  • When a party is seated, the record of their reservation on the calendar will be updated and indicated they were seated, with the word “Seated” (to the right of notes). Also, the Edit icon will be deactivated. This ensures that the user has a record of the reservation in the calendar, but that reservation can no longer be edited from the calendar.
  • If a party is moved back to the waitlist from the Waitlist History screen, the “edit” icon in the calendar becomes active again, and the “seated” text is removed.

Revel now supports the ability to move items between bar tabs. When moving items (table to table, table to bar tab, bar tab to table) the POS display a popup window called “Select a Table”. Revel has added an additional section name within this popup window called “Bar Tabs” that lists only active bar tabs. This will allow servers to rapidly transfer items from table and/or bar tabs to other tables and/or bar tabs.

bar_tab_move_item.png

Figure 123. Updated “Select a Table” Window

For table service establishments, the Move Order / Merge Order pages have been enhanced for usability. After long-tapping on a table or bar tab, tapping the “Move Order” button from the pop-up menu will bring the user to the Move/Merge Order Screen. Users can also access this screen by tapping the “Move Table” button on the main order screen. Figure 124 shows the now updated Move/Merge Order screen.

NOTE: Depending on context, users will see a “Merge” option instead of a “Move” option when managing orders.

move_merge_orders_main.jpg

Figure 124. Enhanced Move/Merge Order Screen

Users can select an order to move from the left hand portion of the screen, and select a destination from the right hand section. Once a selection has been made on both sections, tapping the “Move” button will move the order.

Tapping on the “Todays Orders” link will bring up the “Include” menu. From this menu, users can choose to include table orders, bar tabs, and other orders. This menu also gives them access to sorting options, and section filtering options. Tapping the “Sort by” field displays the “Sort by” menu, where users can sort information by employee, table/tab, capacity, section, order status, and order number. Tapping the “Sections” field displays the “Sections” menu, where users can filter information based on the setting section. Figure 125 shows the sorting and filtering menus.

Tapping the “Available” link in the right hand section of the screen allows the user to choose to include either available tables / bar tabs or ones that are already in use.

Customer Display

If only one receipt option is selected for the CDS, it will no longer prompt the user to select that option, and will perform the action automatically after the customer signature/payment is received.

The error message that is seen when a credit card swipe is not read properly has been updated. The message now reads “Error reading card. Please swipe again or try another card”. The message now stays on the screen until cleared by the user.

If the “Test Mode” setting is enabled on the POS, the Customer Display System (CDS) will now show that the CDS is operating in “Training Mode”. Additionally, if the “Test Mode” setting is enabled, transactions will not carry through to the fiscal printer.

Custom Menus

In order to better serve our users with alternating custom menus, a “Manual” option has been added to the “Application Type” drop down list when configuring a Custom Menu on the Management Console. The user can now select several customized menus that may overlap in terms of time, and send them to any POS station. Once configured on the Management Console, the user will now see the new configuration on the POS Settings, as shown in Figure 129 below.

Manual_Custom_Menu.PNG

Figure 129. Manual Custom Menus

A new pin pad for inputting a manger pin has been added to the POS for all instances that require “Manager Approval”, as shown in Figure 130 below. The user can continue to use a swipe card for manager access.

Manager_Pin_Pad.png

Figure 130. Manager Pin Pad

The Revel POS app will now fully function and operate for an entire minute if the home or power (turn screen off) button is pressed on the POS. During this time, orders will continue to sync with all corresponding POS stations, and with the Management Console. Once the Revel iPad POS app is re-enabled, the POS will return to its standard working state.

Users now log into and provision the iPad POS with a Management Console username and password. Upon signing in, a redesigned “Welcome back!” window will appear with all corresponding establishments. Users can now tap an establishment of choice followed by the “Next” icon, located at the bottom of the window, as shown in Figure 131 below.

Figure 133. Employee Start and End Date Errors

End of Day

During the End of Day process, the POS can now filter the EOD Sales Summary Report by POS station as well as by employee. The “Filter by POS Stations” setting needs to been enabled in the EOD Report Preferences on the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page of the Management Console. This enables the user to summarize all sales from selected POS stations during the End of Day process.

pos_eod_filter-by_station.png

Figure 134. End of Day, Filter by Station

Revel now offers offline support for “End of Day” process actions “EOD started” and “EOD finished”. If a request for “End of Day” fails, the POS will retry the request in several minutes.

The “Print Fiscal Reports” step has been added to the End of Day Process wizard. Selecting this step on the Management Console adds the “Print Fiscal Report” screen to the End of Day wizard on the POS. This screen sends a fiscal financial report (fiscal sales, tax summaries, etc) for the business day to connected fiscal printer.

Gift Cards

All Mercury gift transactions can now be processed through the Dejavoo peripherals.

The pop-up for gift card activation has been updated. When activating a gift card, the window now reads: “Create or add value to a new or existing Gift Card: Gift Card Number ?” The “Ok” button has also been replaced with the “Add Value” button, so as to eliminate confusion as to what is actually being done when the user interacts with this pop-up.

A new “Retry Load Gift Card” button has been added to the POS. This enhancement is designed for situations that can arise where a customer is sold a gift card. After the card has been paid for, errors can occur when the POS is reading the card, causing the user to cancel out of the ensuing error message. Alternatively, the user could hit the cancel button on the “Activate Gift Card” window by mistake if there are no card read errors. In previous versions, these errors would end the transaction without creating a gift card.

The new “Retry Load Gift Card” button allows the user to retry the gift card activation or load. Once the users is prompted for the gift card purchase, they will see the button appear on the right hand side of the screen with other action buttons, as shown in Figure 135 below. This feature also activates scrolling functionality, indicated by the addition of arrows.

On the Inventory Management screen, the “Actual” option for products that require serial numbers has been enhanced in order to improve stock taking. From the Settings > Manager > Inventory page, tapping the “Actual” button for products that require serial numbers displays a window enabling the user to either scan individual serial numbers for the product or enter them manually.

pos_inventory_serial_actual.png

Figure 136. Enter Serial Numbers Screen

After tapping “Submit” the user will see the “Actual Serial Results List” screens. These consist of the Unmatched, Shrinkage, and Matched tabs. The Unmatched tab displays serial numbers that the system was unable to locate. The user can select serial numbers individually to receive, or select all unmatched numbers by checking the “Receive All?” box.

The Shrinkage tab allows the user to remove or “waste” any serialized products from the list. The user can select serial numbers individually to waste, or select all numbers by checking the “Waste All?” box.

The Matched tab displays all numbers that are already recognized by the system. The three screens are shown in Figure 137 below.

Figure 137. Actual Serial Result List Screens

Once the user taps “Submit” they will be shown an “Input Reason” box for the inventory change, followed by a results window for that product’s inventory. Tapping the “Print Details” button in that window prints the results of each serial number. If the user taps “Submit without selecting any serial numbers from the Unmatched or Shrinkage tabs, a warning will be seen, which states “WARNING: You have not selected any unmatched/shrinkage items. Proceed anyway?”

Figure 138. Product Inventory Summary

To better serve our customers who need to manage inventory more efficiently, users are now able to track partial inventory using the POS. If the setting is enabled, users can now accurately account for inventory, including all partial inventory products rounded to a single decimal place.

Loyalty and Rewards

A “Reward Cards” Role Permission has been added to allow or restrict employees from manually adding or reducing reward points from a card. If an employee does not have this permission enabled for them, and they try to add or subtract points outside of an order, they will be prompted to input a manager’s pin.

A “By Prompt on tapping Pay” option has been added on the Settings page in the Management Console. If enabled, the Reward Prompt will display on the POS when the cashier taps “Pay”.

When redeem rewards on the POS, the Rewards Available screen has been updated, and now support multiple reward redemptions per order, provided the “Allow Multiple Reward Redemptions per Order” setting has been enabled on the Management Console.

Revel has extended its group duplication logic to now cover identical items which have the same discount applied to them on the receipts and invoices.

Users now have the option to have voided and returned items appear in the order on the POS, grayed out, with the status of the item in parentheses below it. The “Display voided/returned items on the POS Order” option must be selected on the Management Console for this enhancement to be enabled on the POS. Once enabled, voided items will appear on the POS order screen like those shown in Figure 144 below.

Figure 144. Voided Items, POS Order Screen

“Shipping and handling” items are now removed from an order if the shipment package is removed from the order.

The “Confirm Order Cancel” option has been added to the Settings > Advanced Pos Settings page of the Management Console. If enabled, users will see a pop up window on the POS and will need to confirm that they wish to cancel an order.

When searching for orders by ID numbers, the pop-up window that appears when an order number cannot be found has been updated. The window is now labeled “Not Found” and now reads: “Cannot find a transaction with that order ID”.

A “Return to Main Menu after every order” setting has been added on the Settings > Basic Pos Settings page for the Management Console. If enabled, the user will be reset to the top of the menu every time the user opens or reopens an order on the POS. Otherwise, the user will stay on the last product, subject to other settings.

The “Void/Refund after timeout” option has been added to the Settings > Kiosk page of the Management Console. When enabled, if the alert message on the Kiosk has not been acknowledged, partially paid orders will be automatically voided/refunded and closed, rather than being held.

If the “Display Change Due Box For How Many Seconds” is set to “0” or left blank, then no “Change Due” pop up box will appear on the POS.

When the “Enable currency conversion” setting is enabled, the POS will now display both the base currency, and the currency used in the transaction in the “Change Due” pop up window.

In order to give more flexibility to our users around the world, Revel has implemented functionality for users to build their own payment types. Users can define different payment types on the Management Console, and corresponding payment buttons will be created on the POS. The Settings > Customizable Payments Types page has been created on the Management Console.

The warning message that appears when users have not batched their credit card payments in 24 hours has been updated. The message now reads “This terminal has not batched credit card payments in 24 hours. Please got to the Batch Process screen under Manager Settings and capture your credit card payments”. The message now also contains a button that will link users to the “Batch Process “screen.

  • The “Offline Credit Card Processing” button has been renamed to “Start Offline Credit Processing” (when selected, the button name becomes “Stop Offline Credit Processing”) in the Settings menu on the POS.

Lithuanian fiscal printers now support up to five VAT taxes.

Revel has enhanced its integration with Verifone. Verifone VX 805 users can now adequately capture payment transactions before or after a network loss. If a sale transaction is not completed and a new session has been initiated, the POS will now display the message “Previous transaction was not finished properly. Please check last transaction status”.

To avoid payment processing errors, all currency names are now listed with capital letters on the POS.

Receipts and Printers

Users can now have the POS station on which a payment was taken be displayed on receipts. The “Display station of payment on receipt” option must be enabled on the Management Console. This is useful for establishments that wish to take tips out of the till immediately after a payment was made. It allows users to keep track of which tills they are deducting from.

For Verifone peripherals, it is now possible to not print two additional receipts in addition to Revel’s receipts for every transaction: Navigate to Settings > Manager Settings > POS Settings. Under the Payment Configuration section, set the “Do Not Print PinPad Receipts:” option to off, as shown in Figure 152.

Now, when paying a split bill, the total shown on the printed receipt will show that specific receipt’s total, instead of showing the total amount of the order.

New divisional tags can now be inserted into a template to display spending per guest.

Users with a Zebra Label Printer deployment can now print special characters on item labels. Copyright, Registered, and Trademark symbols are now supported.

NOTE: The TM symbol won’t be able to be printed without a special template as it’s only available in a certain font, and not the default used.

Fiscal Printer reports now display additional payment methods, such as gift card and credit +, along with cash, credit, debit and check payment methods.

For Lithuania and Poland establishments, the POS now checks to see if fiscal printers are connected upon the user tapping the “Pay” button, before they select a payment type. This ensures that for POS stations that are not connected to a fiscal printer, payment is not taken and the order is finalized, allowing receipts to print properly.

Fiscal printers now handle Service Fees correctly for Lithuania and Poland establishments.

Fiscal printers now print fiscal receipts including guest checks correctly for Italy establishments.

The POS now gives a user the option to print all void receipts. If enabled in the Management Console, the user can now print a copy of a voided receipt or an exchange receipt, as shown in Figure 153 below.

For enhanced privacy purposes, users can now print a masked Reward Card number on a receipt. If the setting is enabled in the Settings > Gift, Rewards and Admin Cards > Loyalty page on the Management Console, a receipt with a masked Reward Card Number will be printed. Synergy Rewards Card receipts will mask the first four digits, while Revel Loyalty Card receipts will mask the last four digits, as shown in Figure 155 below.

Reports

Uses of a Manager password on the POS are now logged in the Action Log Report. The entries show the employee that was logged into the POS, the action that was performed, and the owner of the password used to approve the action.

For the “Payment Log” Report under the Settings > Manager > Financials screen, When selecting “email” for a specific employee, The POS now auto fills the email field with the manager’s email (who is logged in).

Security

For enhanced security purposes, the “Admin PIN” configured on the Management Console is no longer seen as a valid password on the POS for employees to access areas that they are not permissioned for.

Virtual Tills

The virtual tills functionality is now accessible outside of Delivery Management. Delivery Management settings do not need to be enabled for users to access virtual tills. An employee should use either virtual tills or physical tills, but not both.

Miscellaneous

The download indicator seen when refreshing the POS now displays the progress percentage alongside with the number of downloaded items.

pos_downloading_configuration_indicator.png

Figure 156. Downloading Configuration Indicator

Upon successful provisioning, the POS application now saves URL, Establishment ID, and POS ID settings that it was linked to into the key-chain to avoid calls to the provisioning server after the application re-installation. If registration data is not found in the key chain, the existing mechanism of registration via the provisioning server is used. Saved registration data is cleared from the key chain upon reset of the POS station and on any negative answers of the Re-Sync dialog.

Clock In and Clock Out receipts now contain information about the POS station name and the Establishment number.

The 25% tip warning message has been removed from the Batch Process Report.
