POS Update to add Miscellaneous Items

POS Update to Add Phone Number Post Order Creation
The latest update to the Order Status Screen and Customer Tab on the joe Point of Sale allows baristas to add a loyalty phone number to an order after the order has been processed. Attributing a customer's profile to an order both rewards customer's their loyalty points, and adds a name and profile photo to the order for barista's to maintain that personal touch.

Store-specific Digital Gift Cards
The latest release of the joe Mobile consumer app now includes store specific digital gift cards. From a shop's digital storefront, customers will now see a gift card banner that allows them to purchase, or gift, a digital gift card specifically to one shop.
If a coffee company has multiple locations, under the same company ID within joe, these store-specific digital gift cards are redeemable at any of those locations.
After purchasing or redeeming a gift card to your shop, customers can view the balance in the newly added Wallet section of their joe app.
Cancelling an Item in an Order
Occasionally an order comes in and an item is unavailable or out of stock. The latest release now allows baristas to cancel a single item in an order rather than having to reject an entire order. As with other changes, such as order wait time, we'll communicate this change to customers on your behalf, maintaining a consistent and trustworthy experience.
