It was already a long time request from various different (power) users, how to use different descriptions for what is printed on the bar/kitchen orders and for what is printed on the bills. On top of that, there also was a huge demand to have different names on the buttons of your products. Working on the iPad is awesome but sometimes you meet the borders of that small screen much sooner then you appreciate (small is beautiful, less is more?). That iPad screen is becoming way too fast too small to add all those features and options you expect from a mature POS application. Some time ago there was a rumour that Apple was working on a 12 inch iPad, guess what, we at WaiterOne love the idea to have more screen size at our fingertips.

So yes, please Mr. Tim Cook, we want that iPad Air 2 Plus

That being said, it was not easy to find extra space on that little tiny screen. Don’t forget the extra hurdle to be taken: find an easy way, as always, so that it is useable for everybody who wants it but also for everybody who doesn’t want and doesn’t want to be faced with it every time he or she adds or change a button. If you download the latest version of WaiterOne (1.3.9) and you go to data -> buttons, you will find a new symbol (shaped like a chevron) next to the name of the button : multiname The added symbols means that there is a screen following the selection of the button name. BUT to make it as user friendly as possible, we only show you that extra screen if you really want it OR if the 3 used names (bill, order and button) are not the same. If you click on Westvleteren 12 (= the best beer in the world) everything will be the same as in previous versions, you can edit the name of your button straight away : multiname2 But if you have used different names/descriptions for that button OR if you have clicked in front or after the name of the button (see the gray zone), multiname2a new screen will be shown : multiname3 Et voila, there you have it : name on the bill, name on the order and the name that will be used on the button. From now on, if you change one of the names, this multi names screen will appear. As soon as you make them the same again, all will be back to normal. One side note : name on bill is the main name, it is also the name that will be used in your reports and so on.
