How Can We Help?

KDS Tags

By Sujin | Updated

KDS tags let you assign tags to products, which you can view in the KDS tagged production view.

KDS tags are useful for employees who are responsible for only one section of the kitchen line and only need to know what items they need to prepare, as opposed to the rest of the order.
