Change the order of Inventory Categories

Change the order of Inventory Categories

When your store's menu is displayed to customers is important to have the most frequently ordered categories towards the top, or the most profitable items, and then popular items right under it. 
This helps your restaurant to encourage the customer to order and increase your sales.

 Steps to modify the order of your categories

  1. Open the Online ordering app
  2. Click on Inventory and choose Categories
  3. Select the category you want to sort
  4. In Sort order set the number you want the category to be sorted
    1. The first category will be the one numbered as "0"

*Repeat the process adding a sort number to each of your categories
