Automatically Print Kitchen (Order) Receipts for Orders Placed via REST API

When Orders are placed via the REST API, they do not get automatically printed at the kitchen. A manual printer invocation has to be done via the SDK. Due to this, developers also has to handle the complexities involved in sending Items to Different Order Printers if they are label/tag based.

It would be really helpful if the kitchen printing can be automatically handled by the Clover system itself when the order is placed. (If the developers want to have control over the printing, maybe it can be informed via a value when placing the order to the API (Ex: isAutomaticOrderPrintingRequired : false)

This question/requirement seems to come up many times in the forum, and would be beneficial for all the developers if provided.
