  1. For merchants that own or operate more than one location selling the same products or services, it would be beneficial to have one place where an administrator can update menus/items from one dashboard for all locations, so that the merchant can quickly and easily facilitate opening a new location, or enacting menu/inventory changes that impact multiple locations.

  2. Adding labels on the clover device take two long I have to add it one by one . If I have categories set up already I should be able to go under labels and select items to add to my label based on category . If I already have a category that everything is for food that go to the kitchen I should be able to go to labels and select that category and create a kitchen printer label with the category.

  4. Inventory should be easier. Every year I have to add each item cost up for an Inventory. There should at least be a report we can run. We put cost and retail prices in for a reason.

  6. In Register App: Merchant wants app to show a notification advising when an item is scanned but it's not in the inventory for Employee roles that cannot add items. Merchant explains that in fast-paced retail environments most employees listen for the beep and move on. This notification would help ensure orders are scanned accurately.

  7. restaurants always have customers calling in to place orders for later in the day or the following day, etc. But there is no way for an employee to key in a pick-up order and enter a future "fire" time. The online ordering app does this and many third party online ordering apps... but not the native android interface/Register/Clover Dining? Is this coming?

  8. Merchant is looking for the inventory to have items that can have modifiers with separate SKUS that will allow each variation of the item to be tracked. Example: (Category- Rings) (Item- Diamond / Ruby/ Emerald ) (Modifiers with individual SkUs )

  10. This is extremely important for retailers when scanning items.
    The clover system only has one sound, a beep, anytime an item scans. The problem is when an item does not have a price attached to it still makes the same beep sound. So if you are scanning multiple items you may miss one. To resolve if item does not have price make a different noise to let retailer know a price has not been logged for this sale item. Otherwise if retailer does not notice item will go out the door without money being collected if its mixed in an…

  11. Merchant would like for the quantity limit amount to be more than the existing 999 that we have currently. All of the orders are calculated via pounds and he would like to be able to key that type of information in for the quantity.

  14. Having a lot of experience with the other major POS providers in the market, I am very surprised that Clover does not have a better inventory management system. Virtually all of Clover's direct competitors offer this essential service. Currently, all third party apps are clunky and create more confusion than help.

    I believe Clover should specifically have the ability to:

    1.) Set low inventory thresholds and reorder quantities. (dynamic thresholds would be best to accommodate business's with changing seasonal sales)
    2.) Ability to assign each product to a corresponding vendor
    3.) Ability to create purchase orders for inventory below the…

  18. Bottle/Can Deposits automatically added to selected inventory items

    In most cash register systems, when you sell a bottled or canned beverage that has a bottle deposit, the system can automatically add a bottle deposit (or multiple deposits, for a 12-pack, for example) to the item or order. Clover does not have a way to do this currently.

    You can create custom modifiers and assign them to an item, which is a work-around. However, this is imperfect because it requires additional user interaction for each item (you have to select the modifier and then press done - two extra touches, potential…

  20. Ability to add modifier with a negative amount. This can be used in instances when the modifier decreases the price of the item.
    Example Item has a retail price listed as $80, the modifier would be a wholesale discount -$10.
