Set Up and Manage Devices

Every restaurant needs to set up one Hub, a device that stores the menu, orders, and settings. When the Hub is ready, you can connect secondary Client devices to it for order taking.

The Hub Device

The Hub stores the restaurant’s menu, orders, settings, and more. Ambur automatically sets the device you create your account on as the Hub.

  • Setting up for the first time? Visit our Download & Activate Ambur article to create an account.
  • If you need to switch which device is used as the Hub, visit our Changing Hubs support article.
  • If you stopped the Hub or it stopped on its own, tap Start a hub to restart it.
  • Connect Clients

    Clients are other devices in the restaurant that use Ambur. Clients connect to the Hub, so any changes made on the Hub reflect across all devices.

    1. Tap 'I'm an existing customer'.
    2. Select 'Connect to a hub'.
    3. Tap the Hub to connect to it.

    Edit Devices

    Give a name to each device in the restaurant, manage which printers they use for receipts, and more.

    1. Tap 'Management' and select 'Devices'.
    2. Choose a device to edit.

      The device currently being used is marked as ‘current’ and the Hub is marked as ‘Hub’.

    3. Change the device settings as desired.

      Name | What the device is called.
      Device ID | A unique code that identifies each device.
      CC Reader | Follow the setup instructions in our iDynamo Setup article to add a credit card reader.
      Closed Order Printer | Select which printer receipts should print to when an order is closed on this device (must toggle on ‘On Order close – print receipt?’ for automatic printing).
      Customer Receipt Printer | Select which printer receipts should print to when a user manually prints a receipt from this device.
      Kitchen Receipt Printer | Select which printer receipts should print to when a user reprints a kitchen ticket from this device.
      Delete device | Removes the device from Ambur.

    4. (optional) To remove an unused device, swipe from right to left and tap 'Delete'.

    Device Permissions

    Use Permissions to fine tune what a group of users can access when editing devices.

    1. Go to 'Permissions' and choose a user group.
    2. Select 'Device'.
    3. Modify permissions as needed.

      Toggle whether users in the group can add or delete devices.

      Select Hide, View, or Edit next to each feature.

      Hide | User Group cannot see the feature at the register.
      View | Ability to view but not change the feature.
      Edit | User group can make changes to the feature.
