Adding/Editing Location Codes
To edit a location, start by logging into the Bbot Owner Panel. From there, click on 'Tables/Location Codes' under the 'Restaurant Setup' section.
- Location Name: The Name of the Location Code displayed on the BOS landing page, menu page as well as receipts
- Code: The Location Code which will show in the URL for the menu page i.e. bbot.menu/mt10
- Zone: The ‘zone’ for sales and tips reporting a location code is a part of. Note, this property does not affect any functional behavior on the site.
- Order Enabled: Whether ordering is allowed at a location code.
- Fulfillment Method: The Fulfillment Method available at the given Location Code
To add a new location code, click the 'Add New Location' button in the bottom-left corner.
'What location would you like to copy existing settings from?': This is a required selection that copies the settings of a preexisting Location. All new Bbot accounts are created with at least one delivery Location, so you will always have one to copy from and you can always edit your location.
After selecting the location to copy the settings from, you will need to select if you would like the location code to direct to a standard location or to an external URL.
If you select a standard location, you will need to complete the fields below and then click 'Save' to continue.
If you select 'External URL', you will need to enter the web address that you would like the location code to redirect to.
'Location Name': This is the name of the location as it will appear on receipts. This name is also referred to as 'Location Long Name' in the 'General' tab while editing individual Locations
'Location Code': This is code that will be included in the URL when a guest navigates to the menu page.
'Add Numbers': This allows you to create multiple numbered locations, each with their own corresponding numbered location codes, with the same configurations (I.e. Bar 1, Bar 2, Bar 3, etc.).
If you would like the location codes to only be shown as numbers, you can select 'Add Numbers' but not enter any information into the 'Location Code' field.
'Pad': This allows you to add multiple digits to the numbers you are adding, often to reflect the floor plan's numbering scheme you currently use (I.e. Table 1, Table 12, Table 101, Table 1001, etc.)
To edit the location code, you can click the box next to each location name or select the box next to 'Location Name' to select all location codes. Once you've selected the locations, the 'Edit' button will populate in the upper right corner, as shown below.
After clicking the 'Edit' button, you will be taken to the page shown below where you are able to navigate to different settings categories to adjust the location code you selected.
