To create categories, make sure you’ve properly divided all items in your menu into suitable groups. Each of these groups will be created as a category.
To Create Categories, go to Ordering → Categories. Click on ADD Category.
In the New Category page, follow the pointers below.
Name - Enter the name of the category that needs to be created.
Description - Enter the description of the category.
Sort Order - Here you can specify a number that will decide the sequencing of the category. Depending on the sequence you add, the categories will be visible in the order: 0,1,2,3...and so on.
Parent Category - If this is a Sub-category choose the parent category from the dropdown.
Active(check) - Checkmark if the category is enabled.
Timing Group - If a category in the menu is available only for a brief period of time like Breakfast, Dinner it can be done by configuring a timing group and associating it here.
Merchant Ref ID - The ID for the category created in the POS. If there is no Ref ID required, you can configure it as -1.
Item Association - Choose the items that belong to the category.
Once the categories are created and the items are associated, they can be synced to the aggregators.
