How Can We Help?

Assigning Additional Categories to Products

By Kelsey | Updated

When you first create products you're required to add them to a main category and subcategory. You also have the ability to add them to additional categories/ subcategories.

Adding products to more than one category helps you to quickly find and add products to orders based on quick-action sorting like Customer Favorites or Gluten-Free Options.

Assigning Products to Additional Categories

To assign an existing product to an additional category:

  1. On the Management Console ([yoursubdomain].revelup.com), go to the Products tab.
  2. Then, click the icon in line with your product:

  3. Once you're in the product details, click Clear Selections from the left side settings menu:

  4. Next, check the box next to Display/Print Options.
  5. On the right side, find the Additional Categories field. Enter the additional subcategories/ categories you want to assign to the product (please note: the additional subcategories/ categories must already be created).
  6. Once you've added all the additional categories you want, click Save:


Additional Categories and Custom Menus

Additional categories allow you to display items in multiple areas on the point of sale. If you assign the product to a custom menu, it will appear in the custom menu only under its original category. This applies to custom menus created for online ordering, so a product can only appear in one category online.

Please NoteIn order for products to show up on your online ordering website, we require custom menus to have the category/subcategory to be selected as auto all.
