Version 7.5.x

Thr!ve 7.5.0

New Features:

Subtotal feature

The subtotal feature is a convenient way to organize large orders, whether for delivery or in house.  This feature can be activated on the Config / Store screen.  When active, use the "Subtotal" button below the virtual ticket (click "more" to view it) to organize your ticket.  Order some items, click subtotal, enter a name.  Order more items, click subtotal, enter a name.  Delivery fees are split among the groups.   You'll see an icon (3 dots) below each item's price.  Click this to move the item to a new subtotal.   The ability to move items is an upgrade over our legacy functionality it FireFly!     When it comes time to pay, you can click the "Subtotal" button on the tender screen to select one or more subtotals to pay for.   All subtotals must get paid out at the same time, but this allows you to manage multiple credit cards easily, and edit an order later, adding or subtracting from the correct credit card.    Subtotal printing options (in printer ticket) have been restored for Thr!ve users as well.  


More / Less virtual ticket button

Because the subtotal feature added a new button to the virtual ticket, we've implemented a "More / Less" option.  Clicking the "More" button lets users toggle less frequently used functions such as subtotal, discount and message.   Clicking the "Less" option hides these buttons for more virtual ticket space.  

Multiple Pricing Scheme

We've restored the backend options to use Alternate Pricing and set a default for the store and per station.  To avoid confusion, we've hidden the "Alternate Pricing" button when the feature is not activated.  This feature is useful for changing prices and activating them at a future date, or for multi-store pricing management.   We have not restored this feature on a per-order basis yet (from options screen).

Combine Ticket

To combine a ticket, recall your first ticket.  From Options, click on combine ticket. You can select suggested tickets (which are open tickets for today, same order type group) or search on ticket # or table #.   If using table layout, you can click on a table with an open ticket to combine it.   Combine information is shown on the full review screen.

Delivery Return & Pay

Use the Return & Pay feature to keep drivers accountable after each run.  Upon return, they'll be prompted for the money they owe (less tips & fees) to close right to a register.  No need to close a driver's shift at the end of the night - the accounting is up to date with every return.

Finger Print Log On Refactor

We've reworked the integration with Digital Persona Fingerprint readers for employee log on.  

Out of Stock Items

We've added support to the Thr!ve point-of-sale for Out-of-Stock items.  To mark an item as Out-of-Stock, use the Manager Home Alert widget.   When an item is Out-of-Stock, it will appear with a red X in the POS.   Thr!ve will not allow ordering of any items which use inclusions that are out-of-stock, and will inactive out-of-stock items in requirements pop ups.   Out-of-Stock data does not yet send to Thr!ve online.

Refund Prior Business Day security

We've added a security setting to allow refunds on prior business day transactions.

Inventory Category Target %

We've added an option in inventory to set a target usage % of sales per ingredient category (such as meat, cheese, paper, etc.).  This is done from the "Manage Categories" button on the ingredient screen.  Ideally, the total of all category usage will equate to your target food cost %.  A new report, Inventory Category Target Usage, will show your actual usage (including deductions and adjustments) vs. your target, as a % of sales.

Add an optional % employer cost to all labor reports

We've added a new field in Configuration / Employees / Timeclock Payroll to specify a extra % that will be added to labor cost. This could include the extra cost of payroll tax and benefits.  This will appear in a separate column on the labor sales report and will be added to labor cost in the Store Summary, Manager Home reports, Employee scheduling function

New Print Option: Sort items as ordered

We've added a new option in Configuration / Printer / Ticket for the Body of the ticket, Item area.  Now you can choose sort order "As Entered" or "Item Sort Order" (that's the order items appear on the item set up screen).  This can be set for customer receipts and/or production tickets.

Tip Shortfall on Payroll Report

The law allows paying servers & drivers less than minimum wage as long as their tips make up the difference between minimum wage. This feature will report any shortfall on the Payroll Report and Manager Home Sales Report.  Read More  (v.7.5.1)

Excluding Job Types from Labor Cost

Select job types that will be excluded from your labor sales or labor productivity calculations. Useful for trainee roles, for example.  Read More  (v.7.5.8)

Net vs. Gross Sales used in labor calculations.  

In the past, labor % and productivity was always calculated on net sales (after all discounts).  This option lets you use gross sales to calculate these figures.   This is configured in Special Pricing > Adv Options.  You can choose to use gross or net for labor sales.   If you are using "gross" instead of the normal "net" it will be indicated on the Manager Home Sales Report, Store Summary Labor Report, Labor Sales report and Trend Report.  Read More  (v.7.5.8)


Catering Sales Reporting

Looking for an easy way to report catering sales?  Some create a custom order type but that can be confusing as catering sales can be pick up or delivery.  We've added a line to the Manager Home Sale Report and the Store Summary Sales by Order Type section for Catering vs. Non Catering sales.   A Catering order is classified as such if it has any item with the item name containing "Cater". The entire order will count as a catering order.  Read More (v.7.5.8)

Thr!ve Ticket Stream:

We've added components to Thr!ve to enable the system to submit data about orders, timeclock events, paid in / out, end of day deposit to Ticket Stream, our cloud-based future reporting platform.  Ticket Stream will also offer an API for 3rd party integrations.  While this solution is still in development, basic communications components are now in place.

Improvements
