Plates: Real-time bill
Sometimes it can be very challenging to keep up with who orders what and how much. Sometimes we spend a bit of time asking around. How about real-time bill? This allows the host (or whoever is willing to use the app) to actively split the bill during the event and it is time-stamped.
-5 friends show up and orders a few drinks
-20 min later, they order snacks
-30 min later, 2 more friends shows up and places more orders
-Repeat until all friends are present and placed all orders.
Issue (towards the end):
-Some were drunk. They don’t want to deal with it or they don’t remember
-Some are in a rush to go home
-Some left a bit early (we may forget what they ordered)
-There may still be confused with the bill (human errors)
-They may forget what they ordered (or placed too many orders to even remember. For example alcohol and shots.)
-Host decides to keep track of who ordered what and how much. Host inputs along the way.
-Time stamp allows who entered or exit the event and how much they owe
-When everyone is done, bill arrives. This should compare what was verbally ordered vs what the waiter/waitress noted. This is good for accuracy
-Time stamp allows to answer who/when/what events
Please allow 20 plates or more to split. I had a group of 12 last night :)
Thanks for posting your suggestions! We’re a small team and haven’t been able to put a lot of energy into our Plates app. I’ll leave this under review for now.
