This implementation is newer version of customized delivery service. To be able to use this implementation, it is necessary to have a computer that minimum MSSQL 2012 or above version and SambaPOS V5.2.3 or above version installed on.  

Attention!

Before starting to process, you need to backup SambaPOS Database.
All modules and implementations are prepared on basic SambaPOS setup. Perform the installation carefully if your current SambaPOS database is different than default.

In this document it will be explained how to implement advanced delivery service. To install, you have two options;

  1. Installing automatically by using configuration tasks.
  2. Installing manually by following this document step by step.

       a. Installing Automatically by Using Configuration Tasks

By selecting this configuration task, all of the necessary configurations will be created automatically.

Go to Manage > Settings > Configuration Tasks from here first click on Update Tasks button and then click on Advanced Delivery Screen Setup 

 

When you click on Advanced Delivery Screen Setup Configuration Task, a warning window will be appeared, click on Yes button and continue.

Note: If you already have Deliverers as Entities, this configuration task will add them automatically into Delivery Service Entity Screen. If you don’t have, you need to create them according to steps below;

Go to Manage > Entities > Entities > from here click on Batch Create Entities link, in the window put # symbol and create your Deliverers.  After completing necessary editings, click on Ok button.

After applying the configurations above, you will have a Delivery Service Entity Screen like in the image below;

In here there are some unnecessary parts (Unconfirmed Label Widget Window) so that you need to remove them from entity screen. Open the design menu by right clicking of mouse and remove those 3 parts one by one.

After removing unnecessary parts you will have such Delivery Service Entity Screen;

Now you can start taking delivery orders. Select a customer and take the order from order screen and click on close button. Orders of selected customer will be seen in the Waiting Orders column, if you assign a deliverer for that order, it will be moved to Delivered Orders column. In here proceed the payment according to customer’s payment type. After that step, process will be completed.
