Ai-Menu Stock Link Guide
Ingredients can be linked to menu items in three different locations:
- Price point
- Selection to a question
- Selected addon
Multiple ingredients in custom quantities can be linked to a single item. For example, a cocktail may be linked to 50mL Vodka, 100mL Baileys, 0.2 of a Lemon, etc.
To link stock to a menu item, first go to Ai-Admin app and select “Edit Menu”.
After entering your PIN code, you will see a list of menu items on the left hand side. Scroll through the tabs and find the menu item in question. For the purpose of this guide we will be doing a wine “Red Wine” in two different sizes – glass and bottle.
For illustration we will also add a question “Would you like some cheese with that?”, and if the selection is made, we will like it to 50g of cheese.
Similarly, there will be an optional addon of Pretzels, linked to pretzels.
We have created a menu item “Red Wine” with two price options:
Press on the “Stock” button:
This will allow you the selection of different price points. By default the first one is selected.
Press the “Edit Linked Stock” button. You will see the list of stock items on the left and the linked items on the right.
Currently there will be no linked items yet. Select the item in question and press the Right-arrow button.
The easiest way to find your stock item is to type in the first few characters into the “Search Name” field. That will filter down the list to only show those items containing entered text.
Once you have linked an item, you can change the QTY of that item by pressing the pencil button. For now we will leave the QTY as is, because a glass is 20% of a bottle, and therefore 0.2 is the correct QTY.
Press “Proceed” once you are happy with the selections linked for that price point.
Similarly, repeat the same process for all other price points, linking the relevant QTY of stock to the menu item.
Each option selection can also be linked to stock. To link each question selection, press the “options” button in the main menu editor interface. Then find the option in question and edit it by pressing the pencil button. You will see the following interface:
Select the response you wish to link stock to and press on the “Linked Stock” button.
This will open the same stock linking window. Find and select the relevant stock item and press “Proceed”.
This will record that linked item vs the answer given, and when the option is selected by the customer or staff it will link those stock items to the order.
Note: this will update the stock linked to option selection everywhere in the menu, so you don’t need to repeat the process everywhere the particular question is asked.
Similarly to the way options are linked to stock items, addons can also be linked.
Press on the “Addons” in the main menu editor interface. Then press press “Manage Addons” button:
From the list that is then populated, select the addon in question and press “Linked Stock”.
Once again, this will open the same stock linking window. Find and select the relevant stock item and press “Proceed”.
Note: this will update the stock linked to that addon everywhere in the menu, so you don’t need to repeat the process everywhere the particular addon is shown.
Optionally, once finished updating stock linked for addons and questions, you can press the “Stock” button in the main menu editor and see all the linked stock items for all price points, addons and questions.
Finally, press “Save Changes” to ensure you menu changes are saved and updated in the server.
