How to add an item to the menu?

Adding an item to the menu is the same as creating a category. Here you can now enable pricing, if applicable, and create more specific settings such as adding custom colors, modifiers, images, or changing printers.

Note: Later, if you make changes to categories or modifier groups, items may or may not inherit those changes. This ultimately depends on the type of changes being made or whether the inherited settings are checked or unchecked.

  1. Click the Item tab located on the top of the Menu Management screen.
  2. Now enter the name that you want to add and enter the Sale Price.
  3. Click the box underneath the Category.
  4. On the drop-down list, select the category/subcategory to be associated with the item being created.
  5. Select the Tax Class and click the ➕ Add & Setup button (in Red).
  1. Fill in all required fields as indicated in the screenshot. Add the image of the item in the image box. Enter the item name in the Item Name field.
  2. Tap the checkboxes next to Copy to Kitchen name, Copy to Receipt name and Copy to Web name (if you want to keep the same name of the item at these places).
  3. Enter the Sale Price. If you wish to keep the item price the same for the online orders, check the box next to Copy to Web Price.
  4. Now select the Super Category, Category, and Tax Class from the dropdown.
  5. Fill in other details including the Background color and the Font color for the item name in the POS.

Please note: After creating the item and changing the item name, you can choose to keep the same changes for printer, POS, and Web names.

  6. Enter the item description that you want to show up for online orders and select the Designer.

Note: If the Enable Web is activated for the parent category and Inherit Online is activated for this item, it will have Enable Web automatically turned on. The item price will be reflected as web price, item name as web name and item description as web description.

  1. Click the Inherit Properties tab.
  2. Here you will see that by default all boxes are marked. If you do not want the item to inherit a specific setting, uncheck the box next to that setting.
