Use Events to establish special pricing for use during specific times of the day, such as Happy Hour, on a specific day of the week, such as every Sunday, or for a specific date range, such as the month of April. First, define when each event is to occur, and then access each of the items subject to the special pricing and designate which events apply to the item and at what price you wish to sell the item during the event time frame. For events enabled with a starting and ending date, the system places a green check mark in the corresponding active column. Active events without a starting and ending date have a black check mark under the corresponding active column.
Adding an Event
- Select MENU > EVENTS.
- Select Add an Event Schedule.
- Type a name for the event.
- Select the days for the event. Select all days if the event is to occur every day.
- Select a start time and an end time. You must specify a time even if the event occurs all day.
- Select Active to enable the event.
Select the start date and end date to enable the event for a specific date range. When you enable the event according to date range, you cannot select Active as the event is activated by the date range.
- Click Save Changes.
Adding an Event to an Item
Events for items use a hierarchy. If two concurrent events apply to the same item, the system applies the event discount for the first listed event. Use ‘+’ and ‘-’ to re-arrange the order of the events for an item.
Select MENU > CATEGORIES & ITEMS.
Select an item subject to event pricing.
Under Event Based Pricing, click ‘+’ to add an event to the item, and select the event from the drop-down list.
Enter the price to charge for the item during the event. The system uses this price for the duration of the event.
Repeat for each item subject to event pricing.
