Option 1: We have created our own Order Monitor Software that you must download to a Windows computer with an OS of 7 or higher. The printer you use will need to be able to print from that computer with either a wired or wireless connection. (The software will NOT work on a tablet, a Windows Tablet or other operating system)
The good news is that it works with almost any kind of printer from a regular inkjet or laser to a thermal receipt printer.
eHUNGRY ORDER MONITOR SOFTWARE INFO & DOWNLOAD LINK
- You can try out the software on your computer by downloading it here:
(If you can't click the link, please copy & paste into your internet browser)
2. Install the "om_401_latest" file, then open the software and log into it with your normal eHungry Username and Password and select the appropriate printer location, as described below.
3. To select a printer: go to the Edit menu at the top, click Preferences and just run through those settings (e.g., pick what printer you want the orders to go to).
4. If you are using a Thermal Kitchen printer or receipt printer, please be sure to UNCHECK the box that says Print HTML and look at the settings on the right side of the preferences.
5. Last but not least, let's activate the option:
- Login to your eHungry Account Manager
- Click Restaurant Manager in the top black bar
- Click Restaurant Locations
- Find Currently Receives Orders by: Click [change this]
- Scroll down to the link that says "I want to have the order auto-print using the order monitor software" & make sure to choose this box and save to complete the setup process.
6. Then keep the software open and running on your computer and anytime a new order comes in, it'll automatically print out to your printer(s).
Option 2: Google Cloud Print (Being Discontinued by Google)
Google has announced that as of Dec 31, 2020, Google Cloud Print will be discontinued. We strongly recommend using one of our alternate notification and print methods.
You will want to start at the link below & then proceed to a list of the printers that they work with directly. Google Cloud Print does not work with Thermal Receipt Printers, so if you are wanting a "small ticket" then you won't be able to go with them.
GOOGLE CLOUD PRINT SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
For setup within our system, go to the following location in the system and then follow the steps:
1. Login to the eHungry Online Manager.
2. Click Restaurant Manager in the top black bar
3. Click Restaurant Locations
4. Click the Edit/View Additional Details button
5. Click Order Notifications, scroll to about the middle of the page, and click the box "I want to have the order auto-print using Google Cloud Print:"
6. Then click the Setup/Manage link and complete the steps. Make sure you have followed all the steps, and then at the bottom, click the Connect to Google button.
After connecting to Google, don't forget to click the Save main notifications details button and place a test order to make sure the printer prints out the test order.
