Test Order Troubleshooting
The following are a list of scenarios that would prohibit an order from going to the POS.
Lost connection: This would occur in either a power outage or a lost internet connection. In this case, an order would be shown in an orange "Admin Hold" status on the orders page. The system automatically tries to re-establish connection in minute intervals until the connection is found and the order can be pushed.
GUIDs Mismatching - Menu (and all GUIDs within), Discount, Tax Rate, Service Type, Payment Type, Service Charges (GUID discrepancy, Day of the Week Descrepancy, Item Descrepancy)
Payment Mismatch: If a payment does not align between the POS and LB, this order will not successfully push to the POS. This would be another instance where the order would enter into an "Admin Hold" status.
