Configuring portions

To configure portions, you must:

  • Create the portion options, for example, 1st Half and 2nd Half.

  • Enable the portion options on each menu item that should be allowed to use them. For example, if you want your Pizza menu item to be able to use the 1st Half and 2nd Half portion options, you must enable them on the Pizza menu item.

    Important

    If you add or remove portion options at any time, you must also edit any menu items that use them.

  • Enable portions on each modifier group that should be allowed to use them. For example, if you want to add toppings to your pizza in portions, you must enable the use of portions for the Toppings modifier group.
