In this article we will go over how to create Menu Items Add Ons .   Please note the Menu, Categories and Menu Items (see articles) must be created before you can create a new Menu Item Add On.

 

1 - First click on the Admin tab - look for the Menu section - click on the Menu Manager bubble and then Menu Manager link.

 

 


 

2 - You will then see your Menus to the Left of the page and the tabs for:  Options, Extras and Toppings tabs to the Right of the page.




3 - Examples of each of these are:


Options - A Drop Down Box with a list of side choices the customer can choose from


Extras - A Check Box for an Item that the typically does not come with that Menu Item that the customer may want to add on.  


Toppings - A Check Box for an Item that the customer may want to include with the Menu Item.

iv.  List the choices under the Option Choice Name.


v.  If the choice has an additional charge add it under Price Value.


vi.  If your option is for a pizza please add the Price Value if the topping is only for half of the pizza.


vii.  If this choice is the most common choice that the client chooses then you can have this choice pre-selected.   So the customer can still change the drop down choice but this choice will be pre-selected.   This is great choice when you are asking the client if they want to Add something to the order and one of the choices is No, Thanks.
