Editing a menu

Whenever you edit your menu, you must:

  1. Click Publish 
  2. Sync the menu on your POS.

Sync the menu on the POS

There are different elements to a menu that you can create and edit, and rearrange (through drag and drop):

  • Menu tabs - group, product, note
  • Menu items - group, product, note

Menu Tab

These are your Menu Tabs.

To create a new Menu Tab, click Add Tab

To edit a Menu Tab, click on the pencil icon next to a tab.

A Menu Tab can be set as a:

  • Group (recommended) - a folder in which you house your products
  • Product - if you want quick access to a product
  • Note - if there's a particular note that you will regularly print

Menu Items

These are your Menu Items.

A Menu Item can be set as a:  

  • Product (recommended)
  • Group - a folder in which you house more products
  • Note - if there's a particular note that you will regularly print

To add a Product to your Menu Tile, you should:

  1. Create a Product in the Products page (and save!)

2. Go to Menu > Add Item

3. Search for your product then select it 

To edit an existing Product, click on it directly

To edit a Group, click on the pencil icon.

To edit a Note, click on it directly

Import a menu from CSV file (advanced users only)

Instead of designing the menu using the interface, you can import one as a CSV file. Click Import from the POS Menu list and select the POS menu CSV file.

Note: You can get a sample POS menu csv file template from POS Settings > Bulk Import (select Menu). The template for Table Ordering Menu and POS Menu are the same, however, only the POS Menu can have products at the category/tab level.
