Menus

How to locate Menus - Redbox → Businesses → Select a business → Menu

Menus are used to display all the items a business and its associated outlets have to offer. Each menu can be configured according to fulfilment (delivery, collection and table), a scheduled date range, for example, to facilitate a Christmas Menu, Or the availability of a menu, for example, to only show specific menus for lunchtime and another for dinner times.

There are two ways to view the menu:

  • Hidden - the item will no longer be visible to the customer on the menu.

  • Sold out - this will display the item with a sold out lozenge and will not allow the customer to add the item to their basket. It can be set with no time scale, until the next opening time or made custom.
