Recommended Setup for Menu Items

When setting up your menu items on Lunchbox, particularly for selections such as utensils and napkins, it's important to organize them in a way that allows customers to make a clear and singular choice. This is the recommended setup for creating these groups.

Step 1: Create Menu Groups. Create two separate menu groups in your POS system:

  • Utensils Group

  • Napkins Group

Step 2: Add Menu Items. For each group, add the corresponding items. For example:

  • Under Utensils Group:

    • Utensils

    • No Utensils

  • Under Napkins Group:

    • Napkins

    • No Napkins

Step 3: Publish and Sync. After adding the items to each group, publish the changes in your POS system. Then, initiate a menu sync with Lunchbox to update the online ordering platform.

Step 4: Configure Selection Settings. Once the menu sync is complete, navigate to each menu group in the Lunchbox admin dashboard. Here, you will need to configure the selection settings. It is recommended to check the checkbox labeled ITEMS IN THIS GROUP CAN ONLY BE SELECTED ONCE. By doing this, you ensure that customers can only choose one item from each group, preventing multiple selections of utensils or napkins.
