Station Ticket

In the above example, the printer is connected to the “Burger” station. In this case:

  • If an order doesn’t contain any “Burger” station items, then this printer will not print any station ticket.
  • If an order contains any items from the "Burger" station, this printer will only print those "Burger" station items. It won't print items from other stations in the order.
