Management ⟶ Configure Item ⟶ Add New Item
To add an item you have to log in to the management screen. Then you select “Configure Item”. Then, you select “Add New Item”. First is the item number. This number is arbitrary, but every item has to have a unique number in order for the POS to store it. Any number will do. We like to use at least 5 digits. Then it asks you for the group. If you are adding an item to a group that already exists, you would type in the group you wish to add the new item to. Or, if you would like to make a new group type the name of the new group to be created and the POS will automatically make that group for you. Then it asks you for the sub group. A sub-group is another way of further organizing your items in a group. Take drinks for example. You can have a group of beverages, then the sub groups would be something like beer, wine, and soft drinks. If you do not need to have subgroups then you simply leave that field blank. Then it asks for the item name, type that info. Then you are asked for the price. Enter the price. Then you are asked for the cost price, that would be the final cost of this item to be made, this info is used for reporting and inventory purposes. Then, you are ask for the search id. Again, this is another arbitrary number that has to be there. Any number you like, then hit next.
Now you see a lot of buttons, the only ones you should be concerned about are the modifiers and cook options. In the “Cook Option” section, you can set the item to print to a specific kitchen printer or not print to the kitchen printers at all. If you don’t want it to print to the cook select Cook Options, then set Cook Printer and Cook Screen to NONE. Modifiers are things like… let’s say guacamole, sour cream, extra tortillas, anything extra or any choice that will come with the item. Now modify 1 and 4 do not add an extra charge. And modify 2 and 3 can add an extra charge on top of the base price of the item. Now on the modify screens it will ask you if you want the modifier to be Forced, Modify, or Never. Forced means every time you ring up the item it will ask you if you want to add these modifiers to the item, Modify means that you will only be asked to add the modifiers when you hit the modify button on the left hand side of the ordering screen. And never means just that, you will never be asked to add that modifier. Then you have to put the threshold. The threshold is the maximum number of modifiers you can select on the item. Say you have ten modifiers but the customer can only select two from the list. Then you would set the threshold to 2. Then it asks for LEVEL. LEVEL is where you name the modifier, i.e.: Sour cream, Guacamole, Extra Tortillas. When adding modifiers in modify 2 and 3 it asks you for the price. This is the extra price on top of the base price. So if you wanted to charge .50 for sour cream, you simply put .5
