I am using LemonPOS 0.9.4rc8 pulled from the persa git branch.
>>Can I control these tabs via LemonPOS?
One thing you maybe able to do is use the "Suspend Sale" feature. When you
suspend a sale you can use "Resume Sale" and find the customer name that is
is saved under. I use this in my small 11 table restaurant were I made
customers named - Table 1, Table 2, etc. - This seems to work very well and
the waitress like it because you can - suspend => resume and add items =>
suspend => resume add add items => finish sale - because you may need to add
refills and deserts to the guest check later.
I have tested suspending a sale and turning off the computer and resuming it
later. I have not tested to see if it keeps it for days but I do believe it
would so the process we use during a meal you could use over the course of 1
- 2 weeks.
>>we sell the food by weight,
Unfortunately LemonPOS does not support scales at this point like Miguel
said but I don't know if you noticed that you can sell items by the tenth -
thousandth of a pound so if your scale has the option to do tenths of pound
then just type in the weight and then type ( * ) and scan the item code.
Example - 1.67*100001022 = 1.67 lb Steak
Make sure to make a weight (lb, oz, kg, g, weight, etc) measure in squeeze
because the "Pc" measure will not allow you to sell 0.XXX items it only uses
Hope this helps you out for now.
