Managing product modifiers

Sometimes, bars and restaurants need to make a distinction between the same item types without creating new products or new variations.  We can do this by using modifiers.
The modifier does not have to affect the price, nor it will be visible on the invoice, but it will certainly make a difference to the bar/kitchen staff, and what matters most to all of us, to the customer.

For example, you can use modifiers to:

Make temperature variations:

Product:
coffee with milk

Modifiers:
cold milk
warm milk

Add a side dish or side item(s):

Product:
steak

Modifiers:
seasonal salad
potatoes
green beans


Product:
tequila

Modifiers:
straight
lemon & salt
orange & cinnamon

Exclude something from a regular order:

Product:
chicken salad
Modifiers:
without dressing
without onions
without croutons

You can create two types of modifiers:

  • Single
    A single modifier type limits you to only one option per item.
  • Multiple
    You can select as many options as you wish, like in the example below.

This is how a modifier appears on a printed order:

i.e. coffee with cold milk

Modifiers will not be printed on order stubs and receipts.

Note: At this moment, it is not possible to track records of modifiers on the stock or in the invoice reports.
