Adding Modifiers

    Modifiers allow guests to customize their menu item selections with options that you predetermine in your Bbot owner panel. You can assign price points to modifiers, making them ideal for small upsells, such as adding cheese or a side of fries to a burger. 

    Modifier selections can be set as required (i.e. choose a size) or optional (i.e. add extra sauce) based on the Modifier Group you house them under. Here, you can also set the maximum number of modifiers a guest can add to their menu item.

    Adding Modifiers

    In the Bbot Owner Panel, you can add new and edit modifiers by going to the 'Menus' page in the Owner Panel.

    To add a new modifier, click on the blue plus sign on the top right. 

    Choose the modifier type (food or drink). 

    Choose the modifier group it should be housed under, enter the name of the modifier, and the price of the modifier. If you would like the modifier to not include an upcharge, you must enter '0'; the price cannot be left blank. After all the fields have been completed, click the 'Save' button.

    If you would like to allow guests to select a modifier multiple times, you can click 'Allow Duplicates'.

    When the guest selects the item with the modifier attached, it will allow the guest to increase the amount of the modifier. For example, if you have a menu item where you would like to give the guest the option to select multiples of the same item like in the screen shot below. 

    Next, add the modifier to a menu item by clicking the Menu Item tab and selecting the item to which you'd like to add the modifier. Check the 'Allow Modifiers' box, and modifier options will appear.

    Select the modifier(s) you'd like to add to the item, and then hit 'Save'.

    Nested Modifiers

    Nested modifiers take customization to the next level. For example, you may want guests to be able to add cheese to their burger, and for guests that do decide to add cheese, you'd like to offer them Provolone or Cheddar. In this example, you would add a 'Cheese' modifier to your burger and then add 'Provolone' and 'Cheddar' modifiers to your 'Cheese' modifier.

    1. Create the desired nested modifier option(s) following the steps outlined above for creating modifiers.

    2. Add nested modifiers to existing modifiers by selecting the modifier under the 'Modifiers' tab. You will be brought to a pop-up box to edit the modifier. Select 'Allow Modifiers' in the bottom right corner.

    3. Select the modifiers or modifier group you would like to add. You can choose one single modifier or 'toggle all' to add a modifier group. When you have made your selections, click 'Save'. 

    Catering Note

    When creating a catering menu, make certain to create appropriate modifiers and modifier groups for large quantities

    • For example: 
      • Modifier Group: Quantity
      • Modifiers: 10, 25, 50, 100

    If guests will be placing orders for large quantities of items (more than 99) then these types of items must be configured as packages of a certain quantity of items through the use of modifiers and modifier groups. Guests will not be able to place an order for more than 99 of an individual item.
