Menu Settings

In the Bbot Owner Panel, go to the 'Available Hours and Menu Settings' tab. Here you can adjust Prep Station Availability and Menu Settings. 

Under the Menu Settings tab, you can edit the menu name in the box provided, set the menu to display as its own tab or as a part of another menu or enable the menu to accept future orders. You can also edit when guests can place orders, how unavailable items are shown, and advanced order-ahead/future orders features (detailed below).

When the future orders box is unchecked, you can manage when guests can place orders by setting your menu to either inherit its schedule from the prep station (set on the Prep Station Availability tab), or to its own schedule parameters.

When the future orders box is checked, you have the ability to set a schedule for: 

'Allowed Ordering Windows' - when you allow a guest to place an order (typically 24/7 if you are allowing 'order ahead')

'Allowed Delivery/Pickup Times' - when you will fulfill these orders for delivery or pickup (usually closely associated with your business hours)

For more information on how order ahead functions work for delivery, please reference this article.

'Unfulfillable item visibility rules' - control how unfulfillable items display to your guests. This primarily applies to the visibility rules of menu items in menus that are "off hours"

 'Out-of-stock item visibility rules' - control how out-of-stock items appear. You can then set these items to never show or to adhere to your 'Unfulfillable item visibility rules'

Advanced order-ahead/ future orders features allow you to adjust the following settings:

'Timeblock Title' - What you would like to be displayed above your time-picker widget on the checkout page

'Timeblock Width' - The amount of time in each selectable timeblock (e.g. a 30 min timeblock width would result in a block like 9:00-9:30)

'Timeblock Spacing' - The amount of time between the start time of each timeblock (e.g. a 60 min timeblock spacing added to the above mentioned 30 min timeblock width would result in the following selectable timeblocks: 9:00-9:30, 10:00-10:30, 11:00-11:30, etc).

'Shortest delivery/ pickup time that can be requested' - Controls how soon a guest can place an order (e.g. if set to 0, the guest will have the option to simply order 'ASAP'. If set to 30 min, the guest will be offered timeblocks that are no sooner than 30 min from the time the order is placed).

'How far in the future guests can schedule pickup/delivery' - This sets how many hours (or days) in advance you want guests to be able to place an order.
