Version 2.51

By Kelsey | Updated


We're excited to bring you our latest software release—version 2.51!

Before you dive in, a quick note about how software updates work at Revel:

  • Your Management Console will automatically upgrade to the newest version in June. No action is required! (You'll see a welcome message pop up when you're on the new version.)
  • Your new Revel Point of Sale app will be available shortly after that. Once it's available, head here for update instructions.


New Features in 2.51: Management Console

New Features in 2.51: Delivery Management

New Features in 2.51: Online Ordering

  • New field in online ordering to track specific delivery instructions with specific customer addresses. This feature is already available in the CRM but will now extend to Online Ordering, which will allow customers to be more specific with their delivery instructions (i.e. add PIN codes for gates or house colors, etc.) and save the information for future transactions.
  • Clarification of text for online ordering, including:
    • Removal of the "unavailable" tag and clarifying a reason why a product may not be available at the desired time (i.e. a breakfast item outside of breakfast hours).
    • When a customer adjusts their time picker or dining type, the system will make it clear how these changes affect their order (i.e. a carryout order for breakfast items may not be available if the customers wants to pick up at noon).
  • New hosted checkout functionality (currently FreedomPay, Vaniv/Mercury, USAePay), that includes an informational pop-up (non-tokenized payments only) explicitly states the customers order type, email address, pickup or delivery time, as well as any new points earned and total rewards balance.

Other Enhancements in 2.51


  • Expedite and tile expedite views now show all items coming into the kitchen, regardless of prep time. This feature gives managers and key employees a full picture of items coming into the kitchen.
