kitchen, the chef can just tap on the checkbox adjacent to that item and the
item name will be strike-off from the list.The completed items from the kitchen will go to the Expo screen. Once an
item is ready to serve, the Expo can mark it as completed by tapping on the
Bump button.

as well as order-level notes on the KDS tickets. It helps chefs and expo to
make sure of any special instruction requested by the customer.Where the item level notes are shown just below the item, the order level
notes have their separate section under the item list.

Kitchen Screen.In the Kitchen screen, the footer gives an option to Select All items to mark
them as completed. It shows the number of items completed vs the total
