Creating Customer Order
Customer Orders can be created from the back office by navigating to Inventory > Customer Orders and clicking on +New. The Create Customer Order screen should launch. You will need to choose the Customer from the drop-down menu. If your customer name does not appear there please see our Customers manual page.
Next, select your Organizational unit, Warehouse, Cashier, and Target Time (date and time). After this, you will need to select the products you wish to add to your customer order by clicking on +Add Products and any discount you may wish to apply to all products by using the %Discount for all Products. To discount individual products you will need to manually change the number under the Discount % tab. In this example, we applied a 3% discount on the Cheddar cheese and a 20% discount on the Ham Sandwich. After filling out all the necessary fields click on Save.

Finishing a Customer Order
There are two ways to finalize or finish a Customer Order, either at the Point of Sale or in the back office via an Invoice.
When finalizing a Customer Order at the Point of Sale, you want to search for the Customer Order and then select the “Pay” option once it has been pulled up. Here you can navigate to the Total screen as you would a normal transaction and complete payment.
This Customer Order would then no longer be listed by default in the Korona.cloud in the Customer Order list. To view all completed orders you will have to select the Filter option.
The second way would be to perform an Invoice. An Invoice can be used when you are finishing a Customer Order where they have submitted payment via ACH or direct through an Accounting Department, and you need to notate in the system that it has been paid or issued.
When a Customer Order has been converted into an Invoice for Payment, you will no longer be able to search for this Customer Order at the Point of Sale. The order will be marked finished and moved into the Filter view.
You will need the Korona.Invoicing package to submit Invoices. For more information specifically about Invoicing you can reference our Invoice Manual page here.
