Using the Price Editor to make bulk edits

To make a bulk edit in the Price Editor, you choose the menu groups and menu items that the bulk edit will apply to and then you choose the type of edit to make. You can choose to set the prices to a specific dollar value, or to increase or decrease them by a dollar or percentage amount. The numeric prices of the menu groups and items change to reflect the edits you make. However, these changes have no affect on your inheritance or pricing strategy configuration. Menu items that inherit their prices continue to inherit them. Pricing strategies you have specified remain in effect but the prices configured for those strategies are updated. For example, consider the following time-specific prices:

If you used to the Set to option to update these time-specific prices to $12, the prices would look like this following the update operation:

The prices continue to be time-specific prices but their values have all been changed to $12.

To make bulk edits using the Price Editor

  1. Access the Toast administration back-end.

  2. Choose Menus > Menu management > Bulk price editor to open the Price editor page.

  3. Expand the menus and menu groups to view the prices you want to make bulk changes to.

  4. Select the menu groups and items you want to edit by clicking the box on the left side of the menu group or item's row. If you select a menu group, all of its menu items and sub-groups are automatically selected.

  5. Click the Update menu and choose the type of update you want to make:

    • Set to: The prices for the menu groups or items you have selected are updated to the dollar value you specify.

    • Increase by $: The prices for the menu groups or items you have selected are increased by the dollar amount you specify. To decrease the prices, enter a negative number in this field, for example, -1.00.

    • Increase by %: The prices for the menu groups or items you have selected are increased by the percentage you specify. For example, if an item costs $1 and you increase prices by 20%, the item costs $1.20. To decrease the prices, enter a negative number in this field, for example, -20.

  6. Click Update.

  7. Save your changes.
