Feature Request - Search for tickets based on other than ticket ID

johnwleejohnwlee Member Posts: 4

Customers often mention what they ordered, their server, what they spent, when they were there in online reviews - if it is a bad review, the restaurant obviously wants to figure out when it was and what may have happened. Being able to search tickets by some combination of fields such as food/drinks, server, date range, payment type, ticket total range etc would allow the restaurant to quickly find possible tickets where the problem occurred to help sort out what actually happened.

    Hi John,

    This is actually already possible. If you have access to the Restaurant manager, in the Reports > Receipts section you can filter through receipts using other details than the receipt ID.

    Please see the following article and screenshot to find out all the ways to find a specific receipt using other details than the receipt ID.

    That only allows searching by one field at a time and that one field does not include any menu items / products. I want to be able to search based on several items that were on a ticket, during a specific date range and for a specific server. Should be pretty easy to do since it is just searching a database.

    Dear John,

    I have created an internal ticket with this and have escalated it so our engineers can create a feature request to be able to search for receipts on which specific products were sold. You will be contacted if this gets worked into the product.

    Best regards,
