You can place camera markers anywhere within a camera view. These markers are commonly used to associate tables in the camera view with transaction data. For example, a restaurant might use camera markers to associate each table in the camera view with the same table number data in the POS system.
The type of markers available to you can vary based on the available POS data. The most common marker is a table marker.

How do Markers Work?
Below is an example of how markers (specifically, table markers) can be useful for you and your business. In this example, you can see a transaction event for each marked table:
Clicking on the event thumbnail brings up the camera view, where you can see all of the markers that have been placed in the view:
Each marker has been placed at a table; the user can hover over each marker to see the total transaction value for that table, as well as the duration of the ticket (when the order for that table was opened and when it was closed):
Please reach out to our team if you require more information on how to use markers at your business.
