Adding tipping in SambaPOS3 / Upgrading to 3.0.25

Hello Emre,

I have three questions:

1.) For SambaPOS2 found a nice tutorial that describes how to add a tip button to the menue where products can be assigned to a ticket (in POS: All Tables -> B13 ....), I don't know the correct name for that menu, sorry. The link was:

http://doc.sambapos.org/doku.php/en/tips/how_to_track_and_change_tip_amo...

How does this work in SambaPOS3 ? I didn't find the ServiceTemplates. Is Tipping conceptually different in this version of the software?

2.) Is it possible that the default tip amount when pressing the tip button is 15% of the bill but can be modified, similar as described in the above example? How would this be done.

I greatly appreciate your help and the efforts that you put into this project. If it helps I could write a tutorial for you that explains how to set up the tip feature after I understand how that works.

3.) can i safely upgrade from SambaPOS 3.15 to the current distribution 3.25 or will I have to start from scratch, meaning will I have to create a new SambaPOS SQL database and loose my old data ?

Kind regards,

Klaas

Hi Klaas,

1. Service Templates have been replaced with Calculation Types (Manage->Settings->Tickets)

 

2. You can not mix both rate and amount for the same Calculation Type. But to get around this, you need to create two Calculation Types and two Actions. You will still need to create the Ticket Tag - Tip as per the V2 instructions.

Calculation Types
- Default Tip -> set to Rate from Ticket Amount
- Tip -> set to Fixed Amount
** Account Transaction will be 'Sale Transaction' for both

Actions
Name : Default Tip
Action : Update Ticket Calculation
Calculation Type : Deafult Tip
Amount : [:Value]

Name : Tip
Action : Update Ticket Calculation
Calculation Type : Tip
Amount : [:Value]

In the Rule 'New Ticket Creating Rule' add the Action Default Tip and value 15
**This will add a default tip of 15% to all new tickets.

Create a Rule - Tip Selected

Name : Tip Selected
Event : Ticket Tag Selected
Constraint : Tag Name Equals Tip
Actions
- Default Tip - Value : 0
- Tip - Value : [:TagValue]

What happens with the above Rule, is if a Tip amount is selected, it removes to Deafult Tip of 15% and adds a Tip value in $

 

3. You can upgrade to the latest version (3.0.26), but as always, backup your database before hand. V3 is still in Beta and upgrading 11 versions in one go may have issues with your setup which we can not predict. If you do have issues, then upgrade one version at a time.
There has been some changes to the database structure in the newer versions which may prevent a direct upgrade from 3.0.15->26.

Hi John, thank you very much for your answer! I managed to introduce an included tip and a selective tip. There was only one point missing in your brief tutorial: In the "Tip selected" rule I had to assign mappings in order to make that rule work.

Now: How do I list the calculated tip amounts to the bill?

In the ticket template I tried to introduce the following lines:

//

{CALCULATIONS}

#... down below in the definition part - this remark line was actually not added ;-)

[CALCULATIONS: Default Tip]

<J00> {CALCULATION Name} | {Calculation Value}

 

[CALCULATIONS: Tip]

<J00> {CALCULATION Name} | {Calculation Value}

//

But this appears not to be the way to do it, since there is not categorie calculations. Still, the tip amounts must be listed on the bill. Any ideas ?

Kind regards,

Klaas

Yes there is no calculations tag. You'll use {Discounts} for calculations that decreases ticket amount and {Services} for calculations that increases ticket amount.
