Advanced

The Advanced tab is where you'll find various miscellaneous advanced options relating to the menu items.  Because of the nature of these features, it is recommended that you contact Microworks Technical Support to explore these features.

 

 

'UPC' Section

 

UPC Code

The PrISM system supports the use of bar code scanners.  These are generally used for pre-packaged items.  This field allows you to link a bar code to a menu item which, in turn, allows you to scan an item's UPC code directly from the Ordering Module.

 

UPC Type

This is a custom feature and it is recommended that you contact Microworks Technical Support to explore these options.

 

Item Tare Weight

Item tare weight is the weight of an item.

 

'Advanced Web' Section

 

Web Special

This option allows the menu item to be managed as a web special and placed on the web specials page.  For more information about Web Specials, contact Microworks Tech Support.

 

Special Image File

This option allows you to set an image to be displayed in the Specials group for this item.  This is only used in conjunction with 'Web Special' (see above).

 

Web Thumb

PrISM Online Ordering allows you to place an image next to items in the menu.  This image is smaller than the Web Image (see below).  This field is optional.

 

Web Image

PrISM Online Ordering allows you to place an image at the top of the Item Modification screen (where modifiers and cooking instructions are added).  This is a larger image than the Web Thumbnail (see above).  This field is optional.

 

'Other' Section

 

Doubles Class

This field works with the Doubles pricing feature of the PrISM system.  This feature allows you offer a second identical menu item at a discounted price.  For example, you may offer a large pizza for $10.00 and any additional large pizza for $8.00.  Doubles pricing is used to accomplish this, and this field ties the menu item to the pricing class.  See Advanced Pricing for more information.

 

Since this is an advanced feature of the PrISM system, it is highly recommended that you contact Microworks Tech Support to explore the use of this feature.

 

Points

This field is used in conjunction with Buyer's Club.  Assigning a value to this field will cause this item to add that number of points to the customer's total when ordered.

 

Fav. Sort

This field controls the order in which items appear on certain reports, as well as the Favorites Menu (see below).  Contact Microworks Tech Support for more information.

 

Favorites Menu

This field is used with a "Speed Bar" - a special group of shortcuts across the top of the screen that allows order takers quick access to frequently ordered items.  The initial setup of a "Speed Bar" must be done by Microworks Tech Support.

 

Use Include Lists

This option should only be used if your system is not configured to use Includes Lists.  Generally, you will not need to use this option. See Include Lists for more information.

 

Auto Note

Choosing this option will prompt the order taker to add a note to the item automatically.

 

Add List Count

This option causes all modifier lists on the item to use the same Count, rather than resetting to zero for each new list like normal.  This should only be used under the direction of Microworks Tech Support.

 

Pie

This option marks the item as a Pie, allowing it to affect the Pie average numbers on the Daily Paperwork report.

 

Key Item

The PrISM system provides a Simple Sales Summary report.  On this report, sales summaries for each menu group are provided on a weekly basis.  You have the option of viewing more detailed menu group summaries by marking any menu item as a Key Item in its respective menu group.  Choose this option to enable that feature.  See Weekly Overview for more information on the Simple Sales Summary.

 

Password Protect

This will require a password to be used when ordering this item from the menu.

 

'Alternate Modifier Level' Section

 

The Alternate Modifier Level section allows you to define more complex modifiers based on levels.  Because this is an advanced feature of the PrISM system, it is highly recommended that you contact Microworks Tech Support for more information.

 

'Advanced Pricing' Section

 

The Advanced Pricing section allows you to define more complex pricing methods based on levels and modifiers.  Because this is an advanced feature of the PrISM system, it is highly recommended that you contact Microworks Tech Support for more information.
