Self-Serve Menu Sync

minute read

 

Introduction

The Self-Serve Menu Sync feature enables Restaurant Partners to take full control of menu updates. by making a "Sync Menus" button available. In addition, a sync ID that is unique to each menu sync is now communicated to Restaurant Partners so that any potential issues can be resolved faster when a menu sync is not completed successfully.

Currently, Self-Serve Menu Sync is only enabled for clients using Toast. Non-Toast and multi-POS clients will continue to request menu syncs via Lunchbox Support pending further Engineering work to activate non-Toast POS systems.

    • When the menu sync is completed, the Status will show Completed

  • If, after several minutes, the sync status does not change to Completed, please reach out to the Lunchbox support team with the unique sync ID
