Typical uses of menu editing permissions

Typically, you would give a corporate employee who is responsible for menu configuration the Edit Full Menu permission to the top-level restaurant group. This configuration allows the corporate employee to edit any menu entity for the entire corporation.

The most common scenario for local menu editing is to create a version of a menu group, set its target and owner to a specific location, and then give your location managers the Local Menu Edit permission at that location. This configuration allows your location managers to choose which menu items belong to their version of the menu group. The menu items themselves continue to be owned and controlled at the corporate level but the choice of which items to include is determined by the location manager. Location managers may also choose to assign location-specific prices to the menu items if necessary but they cannot edit the menu items' other properties.
