Sort items in ROBOTILL

Do you have popular items or categories that you want to place in the beginning of the list so that they can easily and quickly be selected?


Stock Items (products/menu items) and categories are sorted alphabetically in ROBOTILL. It is however possible to allow specific items to appear in the beginning of the list. This is useful when you want to place the popular items first.

This feature is available in the Retail Software module as well as the Restaurant Software module. It is especially useful in the Restaurant module as items are selected and usually not scanned.

Importance Weighting

For both stock items (menu items) and categories you can now add a importance weight in the setup screen for stock items and categories. The higher the weight the higher items will appear in the list.

You can choose a number from 0 - 100 but you don't need to allocate sequential numbers. For example, the items you want on the first page you can add a weight of 2 and then the items on the second page a weight of 1.

The items will be sorted by 'importance weight' (descending) and then alphabetically (ascending).

This new feature is available in version 3.82 that can be downloaded from the ROBOTILL Website.

Restaurant Bill Split

It is easy to split bills in the Restaurant Software of ROBOTILL. The waiter/cashier can split a bill (sale) at a restaurant table into several bills (sales). The split can be done at any time - at the end of the sale when the customers want to pay - or even in the middle of service when more items will still be ordered.

To split a bill, the waiter selects the table in the Restaurant module of ROBOTILL and then selects 'Sale Options' > 'Split Bill'.


The waiter can then choose the items that should be moved to a separate bill. This process can be repeated multiple times if a bill needs to be split into several smaller bills.

For more information about the split of bills, see the ROBOTILL Online Help:

You can also download the Free Edition of ROBOTILL from the ROBOTILL Website.
Note that the bill split feature is not available in the free edition.

ROBOTILL Licensing System Upgraded

ROBOTILL upgraded its Point of Sale Software Licensing System. Customers of the Free POS Software Edition and new customers will not be affected. Existing customers will need to register again.

For this reason it is suggested that customers of the Full Edition with version number 5.80.04 or earlier, upgrade and email the new registration codes directly after close of business to allow the ROBOTILL Support team enough time to generate new keys for them.

There where two main reasons for the licensing upgrade:
Unlike the old licensing system, the new licensing system will not require new keys after a major Windows upgrade or a computer name change.Due to the fact that ROBOTILL is becoming a very popular Point of Sale System, it has become the target of hackers and crackers.  To see how the new ROBOTILL Registration works, see our online help:
