Updates & New Development

We’re constantly improving the software. Please check back here regularly to see newly added features and bug fixes.

What’s new in Version 9.0.1647 This minor release includes important changes to your system.

New! You can now add new checks to existing tables

(designed for community tables where multiple parties sit at the same table). While a “separate seats” function is available, a single party may also have separate checks. This new feature eliminates the confusion with separately paying parties.

How it works:

On the graphical layout, select “Add Check to Table” and then select the appropriate table


Additional Changes:

  • Added Apply Tip for GIFTePay after the sale
  • Added support for Wifi EMV Pin Pads (for Datacap NETePay supported devices)
  • Added “Batch Complete” message for FDMS Rapid Connect
  • Added “Batch Clear” message for FDMS Rapid Connect (includes Datawire 205 Error will clear the batch)
  • Added ‘Hold Check Open’ for tip with EMV
  • Added payment names for house accounts

Squashed Bugs:

  • Fixed ‘Sort Menu Items’ register option; interfering with the proper check total on the order screen
  • Fixed balance sheet shortage if the department discount deduction is disabled
  • Fixed processing fee balance amount with Inclusive Tax items
  • Fixed the void total bug with split checks on the balance sheet

  • Fixed the Error 6 Overflow when using excessive character lengths in the ‘featuring box’ on the ID screen
  • Fixed Error 9 with cashier deposits from the cashier station
  • Fixed Arraybuffer Error with Google Maps auto fill address and Windows 7

What’s new in Version 9.0.1610 This minor release includes important changes to your system.

New! Wait List with Text Messaging

Text customers when their table is ready.

Your host can effectively track table availability using the visual table layout and see who has already been presented with their checks. As parties are seated from the waitlist, the system begins predicting wait times.

How it works:

  1. Hostess adds the customer’s phone number to MicroSale’s wait list.
  2. Customer immediately receives a text to confirm the phone number is correct
  3. When the table is ready, the host sends a text notifying that the table is ready
Available as a monthly subscription service; MSRP $15/month or $180.00 a year.

***UPDATE***

Version 9 will remain as the current version of software.

When EMV took effect, we began developing Version 10 as an out-of-scope solution – meaning that credit cards could only be processed through EMV devices. Due to the slow adaption of EMV in the restaurant industry and the continuing high demand of standard processing, we have decided to delay the release of Version 10. All features that were going to be available in 10 will now be available at no charge in Version 9 due to the delay. This will allow our dealers and customers to get the best of the software without upgrade fees. Our intent is to continue to develop Version 9.

In the latest release of Version 9

  • IMPROVED SPEED – toggling through the button layout and modifiers is significantly faster.
  • PHONE ORDERS REVAMP – the phone order grid has been removed. It is now a lot easier for end users to manage to-go and delivery orders.
