What’s New in Version 2.9.1
This release contains a series of important bug fixes and performance improvements to keep your Ambur app running smoothly!

Additionally, we have made a number of small usability improvements based on direct customer feedback, including:

  • Send bar and unsent items tag are now blue so they stand out more
    • Showing the last 4 digits on credit card listings for easier lookup
      • When connecting to a hub, Ambur device name is used instead of iOS device name
        • When looking for devices in management, hub device is now highlighted
          • Staff can now get a slip listing hours worked when clocking out (opt in via User Group)
            • When printer error occurs, we now ask staff to check if printed and allow to “mark as printed” if so
              • You can now enable auto-close for orders paid for by credit (see Settings; good for QSRs)
                • Suggested tips bumped up to 18/20/25%
                • 2.9.0

                  What’s New in Version 2.9.0
                  This release completely refreshes Ambur’s design, meaning that all of the screens have been updated with an exciting, modern look and feel!

                  The Ambur functionality you know and love will stay the same (including some performance fixes), plus the design will now also match the recently redesigned online reporting on Ambur Cloud (www.amburcloud.com).

                  Note that with this update there may be a change to the colors of your menu items if you did not manually select them. Colors can easily be updated at the category level using the new color palette. Learn more on the Ambur support site (support.amburapp.com).
