How Can We Help?

Split Combos

By Laurie | Updated

Note: this article refers to features in version 2.55, which you may not be using yet. Here's how software updates work with Revel:

Overview

Please Note: Split combos are only available on CDS XT, not CDS 1.0.

Split combos let you split products, such as specialty pizzas, into parts (halves, thirds, quarters, etc.), and recombine them as a single product. Note that this is different from splitting modifiers, as with a split combo you’re splitting the product, not the modifier. A split combo is treated as a single product for returns, voids, split bills, and discounts, and will appear as a single product on the receipt. Inventory consumption takes splits into account. Split products are fully supported on the KDS, down to item details.

Split combos can be priced in three different ways, and you can add modifiers as usual. You can tell the system which modifiers can be used together and which ones are incompatible, so that a customer can't order an impossible combination like a pizza with two different crusts.

Split combos aren't available for online or kiosk (1.0 and XT) orders at this time.

Creating a Split Combo Parent Product

A split combo relies on a parent product. This is where you'll select a pricing option and a number of splits, and this is where you'll make any edits. You don't need to edit the products that can be added to the split.

To create a parent product:

  1. In the Management Console ([yoursubdomain.revelup.com]), go to the Products tab.
  2. Click on a product category and subcategory, or add a new category and subcategory.
  3. Click +Product and give your product a name, such as Split Pizza, Halves, in the Name field. Don't worry about the price yet; we'll come back to that.
  4. Click Save:

  5. Click the icon to open the Product Detail Page.
  6. On the Product Detail Page, click the checkbox labeled Split Combo.
  7. Click Save:

    splitcomboparentset.jpg
  8. In the Split Products field, enter the products with which this product can be combined. You may prefer to create a product group for products that can be added to the split rather than add them individually. If you decide on this option, enter the group in the Split Combo Product Groups field:

    splitcomboaddproducts.jpg
  9. In the Number of Splits field, enter the number of splits you wish to enable for the product. For example, if you enter 2, you will be able to split the product into halves. (If you would like to split the product into thirds or fourths, create another parent product for that split.)

  10. In the Base Price On field, click the Base Price On drop-down and choose a pricing option:

    splitcombopricechoose.jpg
    • Split Combo Price means the split product will use the price of the parent product. With this option, you can decide whether to use full or split prices for modifiers, just as you would with a split modifier.
      • If you choose this option, scroll up and fill in a price under Basic Product Details
      • Check the box labeled Charge Full Price for Child Modifiers to keep the full price for modifiers on a split product. To split the modifier price along with the product price, leave the box unchecked:

        splitcomboprice1.jpg
    • Most Expensive Price means the split product will use the price of the most expensive product in the split, including modifiers. If you'd like to include a surcharge for splitting the product, enter it in the Surcharge field.
    • Average Pricing means that the split product price will be the mathematical average of the prices of the combined products, including modifiers. If you'd like to include a surcharge for splitting the product, enter it in the Surcharge field:

  11. Click Save.

Applying Split Combos on the Point of Sale

Once you've got your parent product set up, split combos are easy to handle on the point of sale. NOTE: You won't be able to add a split combo to a group or upsell combo. 

To add a split combo to an order:

  1. Create an order as usual.
  2. On the new order screen, find and tap the split combo parent product.

  3. When you tap the parent product, you'll see the split combo screen.
    • On the left are modifiers you can add to the split product. On the right are the products you can add to the split. Tap a button to add a product or modifier to the split combo.

      splitcombo_POS2.jpg

    • Modifiers will apply to the entire split product. Some modifiers may show a range of pricing. This is because the prices of modifiers can differ by product. The button shows the full range of prices. In the example pictured here, a cheese pizza with the size modifier Small costs $11.50, but a Supreme pizza with the modifier Small costs $18.00, so the button shows a range of $11.50 - $18.00 because the system doesn't know what the price will be until you select products for your split. When you select a modifier and products, the button will update to show the actual price.

      splitcombo_POS2.5.jpg

    • In the example below, the price you see when you make your selections is an average of the selected product prices. You can also choose to base the price on the most expensive product or give it a set price when you create the parent product.
    • On the upper right you'll see the total price of the entire split combo, including all products, modifiers, and surcharges.

      splitcombo_POS4.jpg

  4. When you're finished making all your selections, tap Add to Order.

Split Combos in Reports

With the exception of the Product Mix Report, all reports will show a split combo as a single product. Product Mix Reports will show your split combo in fractions. For instance, a split combo that's half pepperoni pizza and half supreme pizza will show as a single split combo pizza on your Sales Summary Report, but your Product Mix Report will show that you sold half a pepperoni pizza and half a supreme.
