Configuring your menu

The MOBI Menu editor
The top level. Your menus contain all of your categories, products, modifier groups and modifiers. It’s simplest for your customers if you just have one.
Categories are used to group your products. For example ‘Drinks’ would be a category.
The items or meals you’d like to sell. Products can be shared across multiple categories and menus.
Modifier Groups are groups of choices you want to have on a product. For example ‘Drink Size’.
Modifiers are the individual options you can choose in a Modifier Group. For example a ‘Small’ modifier.
Curate your Categories and Products
Often businesses will offer a streamlined menu online, to maximise margins and keep choices manageable for consumers.
1. Open the Categories tab of your MOBI Menu Editor
- Choose one of your Categories
- Open Edit Products
4. Remove and Add products as needed
Check your Display and Internal names
You’ll want to make sure the categories and products you are putting online are clear for your customers.
Display names are visible to customers.
Internal names are not visible. They’re a more descriptive name for internal tracking in the menu editor
