Service times


By default your table service times will use the mobile ordering times on the Venue details tab. 

If you want to set specific times for table service that are different to your overall mobile ordering times you can select the times to use from the Table service times dropdown.


If you haven't already set your service times, you can create them by clicking the blue Add new times button.


To add your service times, return back to the Configure table service tab & scroll down to Service times.



Click in the Table service times dropdown box & select the service times you want to use for table service.



Tables & QR codes

You will then see a list of all of your tables, along with the URL that will take a customer to your menus with their table pre-selected.


At the top of the table list you will see options to print the QR codes for your tables. By using QR codes, a customer will be taken straight to your menus with their table number preset when they hold their smartphone camera over the code.


Note: If a customer visits your main mobile ordering URL they will still be able to browse your menu and place an order, but they will need to select their table prior to being able to submit their order.


You may also want to configure click & collect or delivery ordering.
