Using Sound Notifications to Manage New Orders

All new orders will be accompanied by a sound notification so that your staff is immediately alerted about new orders without having to watch the screen for visual updates to their dashboard or email. 

The new order sound notification feature is enabled by default. The new order appears as a line item in the Active Orders tab and a sound notification will fire to alert staff that a new order needs their attention.

Please Note: If you are unable to hear the sound notification on your device, be sure to increase the volume level and check that your browser settings allow sound notifications.

If you do not want a sound notification to accompany each new order, you will need to disable this feature in your web browser settings. Please follow the instructions below.


Updating Your Browser Settings in Google Chrome
