DISH POS Onboarding - Part 3

In Part 3 you will configure your Article groups, Articles and Option menus. So let's get started.

The template you have chosen, already provided you with some standards, but feel free to adjust everything to fit your needs.

  1. To create an Article group, just click on + Add row and fill in the Name, then choose under which Tab you want it placed, the Turnover category it belongs to, the Printer that is to be assigned, the VAT rate, if it is part of a Default course and assign a Menu color.
    Once you have created all Article groups, click on Next.
In case you have forgotten an article group, you can return at any time to add it.
  1. Enter now all your articles from your menu and also extras that you may be selling, but aren't in your menu cards.
Depending on the size of your menu, this may be a longer process. So remember to take breaks.
Also, if you are not sure what each Tab is for, click on Show more for the information to pop up.
  1. Click on + Add row and enter a Name for your article. Then choose the articles' group, enter the Price (Note: Even if the article is a free bee a.k.a. a giveaway, the price - in this case 0.00 - still has to be entered), choose if it has a manual price, then if applicable, set the Option price, the assigned Turnover category, set the Printer this article is to be printed from, select if it is part of a Course, its VAT rate, if and which Menu options apply, optionally a Search key (i.e. CAP = Cappuccino), possible Allergens and finally if and which article has a Deposit.
    When done, click on Next.
  2. To create Option menus, simply click on + Add row, give it a description and then add the Choices.
    The choice can also be an existing article, like whipped cream.
    If for example you offer a variation of cakes and pies, of which some are served with whipped cream on the side and others aren't, but a customer can still choose it as an extra.
    So you have whipped cream stored as an Article for € 0.50 and now you may also need the option of serving an apple pie without whipped cream, (which naturally will not affect the price).
    Type "Whipped Cream" and the Article will appear right below. Choose it and then type, for example, "Without Cream".
    The difference between these two, is that the "Without Cream" is just a note on the order bill, but has no effect on the price since it is not an Article.
    Another example is "+/+ Ice" and "-/- Ice", where neither make a price difference, since in this example the ice does not cost anything extra, but are in the order bill, for the Barkeeper to see.
    Once all Options are complete, click on Finish setup.
  3. To finalize the project, click again on Finish setup.
