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.
