Understanding the Live Orders page

When customers order dine-in, pickup, delivery, counter pickup, or in-venue delivery the orders will all appear on your Live Orders page in Mr Yum. If you are POS integrated, the orders will ALSO show in your POS.

To access your live orders in Mr Yum, go to Orders > Live Orders.

New orders will appear on the Live Orders tab of this page. Here is what each colour means:

  1. Green: The order has successfully made it into your POS.

  2. Blue: Pre-order by a customer has been placed. This means they have chosen a time to pickup or get delivery. All customers get SMS'd a confirmation of their pickup/delivery time.
    1. IMPORTANT: These blue orders won't go into your POS until 20 minutes (or whatever buffer you choose on the pre-order printing settings) before the pickup time. This means if someone goes to your menu at 10am and pre-orders for 4pm, the order won't appear in your POS (or go to KDS/printers) until 3:40pm.

  3. Red: Order is not accepted by the POS. This is not an issue from the consumer's end, but rather an issue with the integration to the POS system. You will need to manually enter the order into your POS and can later investigate why the POS rejected the order. If you have SMS notifications turned on, you will also receive an SMS letting you know you have a red order. 

  4. Orange (only for restaurants that are NOT using pickup or delivery pre-order times): This colour is only used if you would like to manually SMS every customer who orders pickup/delivery to let them know the expected time the order will be ready. If you have pre-order times set up, you don't need to worry about this. If you have pre-order times, the customer will simply choose their pickup or delivery time and be automatically SMS'd to confirm they chose that time, and the order will show in blue. 

Orders will appear as cards with the following information listed on the cards:

  1. Order grouping heading.
  2. Customer name. In the above example, the name used for the order was Mr Yum.
  3. The date and time when the order is placed. If it's a pre-order, the time counts down to the ordering window start time. If not, it counts up from the time when the order is created. It will show the date and time of the order if there are more than 24 hours between the time when the order is placed and the current time.
  4. "Pre-ordered for" date which only appears if it is a pre-order.
  5. "Delivery expected at" date.
  6. Ordering type, whether it is a pickup, delivery, or dine-in.
  7. The total amount of the order.
