Step by Step Instructions

This menu edit guide will go over the Menu Tab in the menu editor.

To get to the menu you editor you click on Order.


Click on Edit menu.


Click Edit menu.


Right click on a group and select edit group.


You will come to the page below, click on the Menu tab at the top.


You will now be on a page that looks like this. You can see your Menu Name, the Date and time it was created and when the menu was last changed and by who across the top under the Tab bar.


We are now going to Go through each item and describe what each item does in detail. Please note that any changes that you make here will apply to the whole menu.

a.       Allow UPC Items- This allows you to use the Universal Price Code of any item by scanning it or putting the numbers into the system.


b.       Manual Quantity- This will allow a Keyboard to pop up to enter the number of that items instead of hitting the repeat item button that many times


c.       Use Pairs Pricing- Allows you to mark an item that is the same item and have the price show in the original items price. Example: Buy 1 Large Pizza for 12.95, get a 2nd Large Pizzas for a total of $20.00.


d.       Allow KDS Priority- This allows your to make an item appear at the top of the kitchen display. Mostly this is used when you have things that are time sensitive.

If you want to change this, you would just click on the preference and it will allow you to change it.


j.         Allow Preference Modifiers- This allows you to modify the preferences if there is a preference that can be modified. For Example I want a baked potato with butter and sour cream but I also want that baked potato to have bacon bit on it. The baked potato would be a preference and the butter, sour cream and the bacon would be modifiers to that baked potato.


k.       Allow Auto Quantity Printing- This will allow your kitchen ticket to show as a number followed by X, instead of the same item printing 3 times. For Example if I want 3 pepperoni pizzas then when it go’s to the kitchen it will show 3X Pepperoni pizza instead of Pepperoni Pizza, Pepperoni Pizza, Pepperoni Pizza.
