Show Unavailable Category

Show Unavailable Category

With the Online Order app, you have the option to make Categories available for a specified amount of time. For more information, please refer to this article. 


You can then choose to Show or Hide a Category that is not currently available. To do this:

  1. Login to your Clover web dashboard

  2. Open the Online Order app

  3. Click Settings, General

  4. Enable or Disable the "Show Unavailable Category"



This is what your Unavailable Categories will look like if they are set to show. Notice how Orderspoon lets customers know when the Category will become available again (depending on the availability you set):
