No Operation Allowed: If you enable this option, you can prevent the table to be operated at all, when it is in this particular status.
Add: Used to add new Status
Modify/Save: Save Modified Information

- In a networked synchronized environment, and the terminal is not the master, e.g. table host server is not localhost, the system will now allow you to add, modify or delete of status.
This screen allows you to set the parameters related to table management. There are 5 sub screens in this configuration page.
Begin each order with table selection: If this option is enabled, the "table management screen" will be the main screen in the POS front end.

Treat a table as available if seats are available: TBARequire entry of Number of Guests when opening a new table: If this option is enabled, number of guests must be entered when opening a new table.
Tab 4b(Options 2)
Tab 4c(Options 3)
Default Region: Can select the default Region for the main “table management page” to display. If this option is not used, all the regions will be show by system default.The reason for selecting different region is that potentially and especially for large establishments, each terminal in a networked environment maybe serving different region specifically.
After order completion, automatically mark table status as: You can define after the order is complete in a table, the table status that table will automatically be in. e.g. cleaning, preparing and etc.
Update frequency (seconds): In a networked environment, you can set the refresh time, e.g the time period terminal will update table related information from the table services host in the network. The shortest synchronization period for table services is 15 seconds.
Time limit for the use of tables (minutes): Can set the maximum time of dining/eating period, and this information will be shown on the table management page on each table.
Reservation Reminders (minutes): Can set the system to provide a reminder at a time defined by you, prior to the table booking time.
Reservation Expirations (minutes): You can set the time period to keep a table, after the booking time is surpassed.
Maximum Check Number: You can set the maximum check number, which automatically recycles itself when the number is reached. This option provides another form of tracking orders and is typically used in establishment wanting to track order in a given period such as call out orders and etc.
- In a clustered networked environment, if the terminal is not a master (e.g. in the synchronization setting, the table host is not set to localhost). This page will have an additional function button ”Clone Master” .
Activate Minimum Charge: This is the switch to apply minimum charge rule.
Apply minimum Charge On: You can use Final Amount or Original Amount to be used for
calculating minimum charge.
- Final Amount: The amount after discounts, promotions and surcharges are included.

Global Minimum Charge per table: You can set the default minimum table charge here.
Global Minimum Charge per guest: You can set the default minimum charge per guest here.
Record Minimum Charge Against: If minimum charge is enabled, you must define a product to be used for making up the minimum charge. The system will use it when finalising an order requiring the application of this PLU to satisfied the minimum charge rule.
Annotation for Overriding Minimum Charge: TBA
Auto recall order when only one order exists: When activated, if you select a table with only one order then that order will be automatically recalled to the Transaction Screen. (a useful feature to avoid mistakenly creating multiple checks on one table)
- Minimum charge can be be defined at a global level as well as at an individual table level.
- The minimum charge define at a table level will overwrite the globally defined minimum charge.
- If both minimum charge per table and per customer are set, the higher amount of the two will be used as the minimum charge.
- In a clustered networked environment, if the terminal is not a master (e.g. in the synchronization setting, the table host is not set to localhost). This page will have an additional function button "Clone Master".
