Item Availability enables you to create an item countdown at the POS, also known as ’86ing items’. You set the item count at the POS and each time an employee adds the item to a guest check, the POS decrements the quantity on hand. When you access the order entry screen, you see the available quantity on hand or an item’s unavailability. If an item is unavailable, employees cannot add it to an order until a supervisor edits the quantity on hand or removes the limit.

Item availability should not be confused with inventory.

Note: If you use multiple devices in a restaurant and do not use Silver Server, the system cannot synchronize item availability across devices.

You can edit item availability through ‘Enter Quantity on Hand’ at the POS home screen or by long-pressing the item on the order entry screen.
