Marking Orders as Ready and Complete


As orders are completed by the kitchen and picked up by customers, the order status will need to be updated on the Pending Orders screen. This is done by staff using the Ready and Complete buttons, which helps them stay organized and up-to-date when managing online orders, ultimately ensuring timely service for customers.

On the Pending Orders screen in the Upcoming or Current tabs, there will be two buttons below each check titled Ready and Complete.

    • Marking an order as Ready will move it to the Ready tab, from there it can be marked as Complete
    • Marking an order as Complete will move it to the Completed tab.
