Table map

mapa1The table map is automatically enabled if you select in the activation wizard Restaurant/coffee bar. In other cases you can enable/disable the table map in advanced settings of Dotypos.

The table map also allows a scheme of tables to be created corresponding to the position of these tables at your establishment. Afterward, you can charge or park the already created orders to individual tables. The items in one account can be divided among more tables or orders to reflect customers’ demands for payment.

The table map can contain up to 5 pages and you can easily switch among them. On each page you can have tables displayed corresponding to one room or hall. You can set the number of pages in the Table map in the Dotypos advanced settings.



If you use the table map, you will benefit from the easy reservation system that allows the creation and registration of reservations using an easy application. For more information, see the chapter Reservation.

How to create table booking?

Dotypos can be used for table booking thanks to the separate Reservations application. As soon as you install this application in the touch cash register you can make reservations for individual tables in a well-arranged calendar. This simple booking system will replace the still commonly used paper book. Find more information about the Dotypos booking system in a separate chapter.

Booked tables are indicated in the table map by a purple R 30 minutes before the beginning and 10 minutes after the beginning of the booking time.
