With Custom Menus, you can elect to limit what products are available at certain times, assign products to specific POS stations or modes, and still produce a cumulative sales report for all items sold. For example, you may only want to show a happy hour menu at the bar POS, and show a full menu on all restaurant POS stations. Prior to creating a Custom Menu, please make sure that all products offered at your business have been entered into your system.
