Configure printer profiles in Restaurant Manager for every physical printer in your restaurant environment (e.g. receipt, fiscal, kitchen or bar printers). If you have four unique printers in your restaurant, then you should have four printers configured in Restaurant Manager. A printer in Restaurant Manager can also be a virtual printer for emailing receipts and invoices; see Setting up electronic receipts.
Once printers are added to Restaurant Manager, you can then link them to printer templates to that particular types of printing jobs are sent to the correct printer model.
Please note that adding a physical printer to Restaurant Manager also requires some hardware setup and network configuration.
