Improvements to Pre-Order by ResDiary

  • Restaurant operators now see Pre-Order items for each guest as grouped (where ‘menu items’ are the same with the same ‘cooking modifiers’ and ‘optional extras’).
    These grouped items are represented with group counts e.g. 2 x
  • Restaurant operators with multiple venues, are now able to easily share menus across these venues, so that they do not have to re-create each menu repeatedly.
  • Restaurant operators now see the surcharge price field (and not the menu-item price field) when viewing/editing ‘Set’ menus.
  • Now, If a Pre-Order host invites a guest to edit their own order, when they choose to update their ‘name’ details, this now is reflected on the order.
