Ring in your table with different seats. For example, on Table 61, Seat 1: 7up, press Next Seat, on Seat 2: Diet Pepsi, and press Send.
Go back into the table and click Edit Check, Transfer Out, and get manager to Authorize
You will see your check separated by Seats all on check 1. NOTE: if you don’t separate the seat numbers originally, you will not get the **** Seat # **** show up. By entering in the seat numbers, it will make this process a lot easier for large parties.
Touch items under ***Seat 2*** and move to Check 2 by touching the empty space, in this case 61/2. You will see the items from Seat 2 move over to the new check.
Continue and hit the New button for all additional seats. When you are finished press Press Yes to Exit and Save changes.
NOTE: When you go to access the table, you will now be prompted to choose the separate check
On the Vx680 PATT terminal, swipe the Micros Employee Swipe Card and pick the table number that you just separated the seats.
You will now see the table split up by seat by CHECKNUM/SEAT NUM. In this case I selected the 3rd button from the top and then selected pay.
Follow your regular procedures from here to process the transaction
When you access the check again, you will see that seat is closed and the other seats are unaffected.
To speed up service on large parties, you could use all of your PATT terminals (original server or manager would have to swipe their cards first) and this will not conflict with any other transaction.
Also for customers who would like to use the same card twice on the same check, for example a customer on business who would like to pay alcoholic beverages separate from the food, you could follow this same procedure.
