We have a Star Micronics TSP743II with BU01-24-A attached that was used with our old POS (Windows-based). Every prep ticket sounded the buzzer which was programmed through the shared printer in Windows.
Our staff appreciated the notification both line cooks and register staff as they both had confirmation a ticket was printed. No buzzer? Go back and make sure the printer didn't go offline or run out of paper.
We switched to Clover two weeks ago and we were very disappointed that the buzzer isn't an option in Clover. (Additionally, resetting the printer results in smaller print until we send any job from a Windows device. Once we send any test page, the Clover jobs then print "normally".)
Is there any way for Clover to program the prep printers to trigger the peripheral port and sound the buzzer? Not being a programmer I wouldn't know if it's possible from an Android device but it looks like it's a few commands.
