Adding items:

  1. Go to Your Menu > Menu Items.
  2. Click into the category you want to add an item in — e.g. it might be called Food or drinks — or refer to Structuring your menu - creating categories, sections & items to create a new category.
  3. Click an existing item or refer to Structuring your menu - creating categories, sections & items to create a new item.
  4. In the Item Information, enter your item's product code in the POS ID field. In the example, replace "xxx" with your item's product code.
  5. Click Update or Create if it is a new item.

Your product codes are available through your POS system. Refer to POS Integrations for a guide on how to find your product codes.

Modifiers, known as variants or options by some POS systems, also require a product code. Some POS systems will sync modifier product codes directly to your Manage Mr Yum platform, saving you valuable time!

If your POS system syncs with your Manage Mr Yum platform, new modifiers should be added through your POS system.

Adding modifiers:

  1. Go to Your Menu > Modifiers.
  2. Click on one of your modifiers or refer to Creating and managing modifiers to create a new modifier.
  3. Enter your product code in External POS ID or External POS group ID if it's part of a group. 
  4. Click Update or Create if it's a new modifier.
