Check the settings
Once you have created a new item, it’s time to check some settings. The above screen displays the settings that you need to do to get the optimum results from the Pizza Builder module.
On the Detail page, most of the information comes prefilled. You can just add a few more info – the COG (cost of goods), Margin%, Background color, and Font color. Click Save after adding these details.
Additionally, click the checkboxes beneath the Item name, if you want to keep the same name for Kitchen, Receipt, and Web.
Under the Assignment tab, you may assign specific or multiple printers for this item or keep the inheritance from the associated category/subcategory. The above screen displays that you may create a Kitchen Name and/or Receipt Name which will appear on kitchen tickets and receipts respectively.
To enable the pizza builder, go to Additional Settings and check the box as seen in the screenshot. If you check the box it will combine the same Left half and Right half toppings as the Whole Topping.
Edit the configurations
Tap Configurations on the left side panel. Go to the Search bar on the top and type Enable Prefix on Modifiers and click the first option on the drop-down list.
The screen will scroll down automatically and will stop at the configuration that you have searched for. Check out the screenshot.
Now turn on the toggle switch adjacent to Enable Prefix on Modifiers and it will turn red.
Similarly, search for Enable Modifier on Product List Screen and click the checkbox adjacent to it.
Create a modifier group
Go to the Catalog under left navigation.
Now to create a Modifier Group for the pizza, click the icon located on top of the Catalog screen.
Click the icon on the top right side of the screen.
Fill in all required fields as indicated in the screenshot.
Firstly, click the Detail tab and select the Background and Font color from the color grid.
Under Settings, check the box and as seen in the screenshot.
Go to the Pre/Post Modifier tab. From here you can customize the settings for modifiers for the first half, second half, or a whole pizza.
PricingYou can set the fixed pricing or set a mult. factor for either part of the pizza or whole pizza. Whole Toppings can have a fixed price or the price can be a multiplier. In this example, the price for whole toppings has a multiplier factor of “1” and the Right half toppings has a multiplier factor of “0.5”. You also have the option to enter a different name for the POS and the Kitchen. Abbreviations can be used for the Kitchen if required. It will print the kitchen ticket with the abbreviations.
Display ModeThis is where you can choose the modifier name as the Prefix or Suffix. For example, the Condiment option is a modifier group and mustard and ranch are the modifiers under that group. With the help of pre/post modifiers, you can now associate the modifiers with prefixes such as “No Mustard” or “Light Ranch”. In this scenario, No and Light are the prefixes for the modifiers. Another option will be to add the modifier with the suffix “Ranch On the side” or “Mustard Extra”. In this case On the side and Extra are acting as a suffix for the modifier. Click on to proceed. Once saved, you will see a notification message saying Modifier Group Created Successfully.
