Creating Duplicate Inventory Categories For Catering Menu

Creating Duplicate Inventory Categories For Catering Menu

Some time and preparation are required in choosing how to set up your Catering menu.  A very important note here is that a Clover Inventory Category cannot be available in your regular online menu and your catering online menu. It was designed this way so you can separate your menus and create separate Orderspoon sites.   

It is possible, however, to have Items available on both menus. 
For example, a Double Cheeseburger item can be attached to a "Burgers" Category, then we can create a separate "Burgers/Catering" Category.  This "Burgers/Catering" will be the Category displayed on the Catering site. 

To create a duplicate Category: 
  1. Login to your Clover web dashboard
  2. Open the Clover Inventory app
  3. Click on Inventory, Categories
  4. Click on the  "Add New Category" button
  5. In the "Category Name" field, type in your Catering Category name. For this example, we are using "Burgers/Catering".
  6. Click on "Save"
  7. Click on the Items tab
  8. In the Filter By drop-down list, select the category you are going to duplicate for your Catering Menu, in this case, it's the "Burgers" Category. 
  9. Click on the Select All checkbox. This will select all of the items in the Category. When you do this, new fields will open up.  
  10. Now that your items are selected, in the Categories drop-down list select your newly created Catering Category
  11. Click on "Apply"
Now, the items will be assigned to both categories: your regular and your catering.
